Red Hat extends Lightspeed generative AI tool to OpenShift and Enterprise Linux

Red Hat’s generative AI-powered Lightspeed tool was first announced last year for the Red Hat Ansible automation platform. This morning, as the Red Hat Summit kicks off in Denver, the company announced that it will be extended to Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Red Hat OpenShift.
