Chapter 2. Technology Preview features

Some features in this release are currently in Technology Preview. This section describes the Technology Preview features in Red Hat Service Interconnect 1.4.


Technology Preview features are not supported with Red Hat production service level agreements (SLAs) and might not be functionally complete. Red Hat does not recommend using them in production. These features provide early access to upcoming product features, enabling customers to test functionality and provide feedback during the development process. For more information about the support scope of Red Hat Technology Preview features, see Technology Preview Features Support Scope.

Podman sites
With this release of Red Hat Service Interconnect, you can create sites on RHEL hosts as well as Kubernetes namespaces. See Using Skupper podman for more information.
With this release of Red Hat Service Interconnect, you can optionally provision a console to monitor traffic flows across the service network. See Using the Skupper console for more information. This early version of the console uses an in-memory prometheus instance to populate traffic visualizations. The prometheus instance and metrics are not intended for public use, Red Hat encourage you to test and provide feedback on the console features only.
