Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 Early Adopters

Our Early Adopter Program (EAP) is an opportunity to engage a small community of RHEL ecosystem partners to test new features and assist in developing a market-ready product.

Early Adopter Program

In November 2018, select strategic Red Hat Connect technology partners got a head start on developing for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 with pre-market access to tools, support, information, and software. 

Early adoption is more than just testing and certifying.  It’s also about capitalizing on new features and elements to accelerate time to market.  Early adopters have a path to deliver an enhanced, market-ready product that is supported with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 at launch.

Meet the partners

These partners, featured below, have tested and now support their products with RHEL 8, providing their enterprise customers a secure and consistent foundation across hybrid cloud deployments. 

Software products that are tested and certified for use with RHEL 8 are published in the Red Hat software catalog. The Red Hat software catalog showcases business applications that are available for use with the Red Hat Enterprise Linux-based ecosystem.

Our strategic collaboration with Red Hat and our certification of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 enables Couchbase to help deliver true hybrid and multicloud deployment flexibility for business-critical applications.
