Red Hat announced that it will support .NET Core 2.0, the latest version of the open source .NET Core project, on Red Hat’s portfolio of open technologies.

.NET Core 2.0 is a modular platfrom for web development. It provides developer with new features and capabilities, gives a possiblity to create cross-platfrom .NET app. The final product can be deployed on:

  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux
  • Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform
  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux Atomic Host
