I submitted request to my TAM and once approved I was able to see the download option from the Dropdown for 'Red Hat Enterprise Linux Atomic Host' from the https://access.redhat.com/downloads/content/69/ver=/rhel---7/7.1/x86_64/product-downloads page.

I would like to know when we can use satellite for Atomic Host? The RHEL 7 includes kubernetes and docker but not sure how to build a kickstart to create a RHEL Atomic Host?

There's some great docs out here for Red Hat Atomic Host, but we need to organize them a bit better.

The links for eval are for RHEL and there seems to be a disconnect as to which RHEL and support options will really turn on the Atomic download.
