Red Hat wins Clara Conti as SVP and brings OpenShift to US authorities


Red Hat, Inc. announced that Clara Conti has joined the company as Senior Vice President and General Manager of Public Sector.

Conti brings more than 20 years of technology leadership to the table, including experience in strategic planning and execution, pipeline development, implementation of customer acquisition and retention guidelines, operational and financial risk management, as well as consolidations and integration. She was previously General Manager of Presidio Government Solutions and held positions at IBM and Aurora Technology Solutions.

Red Hat has too announced Azure Red Hat OpenShift on Microsoft Azure for the US Government as a public preview. By deploying the Kubernetes platform as a co-managed and supported cloud service, Azure brings Red Hat OpenShift to Microsoft Azure for the US government, Red Hat OpenShift and Azure in a dedicated cloud for government agencies with the intention of making critical compliance and security regulations for the most sensitive General availability workloads.

The expanded service offers new features and capabilities tailored to the information security needs of sensitive workloads, including:

  • Egress lockdown, which should be available in the coming weeks, requires access to mandatory cluster resources via the private link service, so no traffic is required to leave the cluster.
  • Compute Isolation for isolating virtual machines (VMs) that process sensitive workloads to meet compliance and regulatory requirements. This feature ensures that only a single VM is running on a specific server instance and makes Compute Isolation Worker nodes available to customers who can deploy them directly in their Azure environment.
  • Spot nodes that allow customers to buy unused Azure capacity at a discounted price. With this release, customers can take advantage of the reduced costs by using Spot Instance Worker nodes.
  • L-series VMs, VMs optimized for memory-intensive workloads, are now also available as worker nodes.
