Today marks an exciting milestone for Red Hat as we share news of the general availability of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7, the latest major release of the flagship platform.

Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 not only lays the foundation for the open hybrid cloud and serves enterprise workloads across converged infrastructures; it pushes the operating system beyond today’s position as a commodity platform. Built to meet modern datacenter demands along with next-generation IT requirements, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 powers the spectrum of enterprise IT, from application containers to cloud services.

With today’s announcement, we invite you to join the Red Hat hosted virtual event, Redefining the Enterprise OS, at 11 a.m. EDT today at http://bit.ly/RHELjune10 to learn more about Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.

Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 offers customers agility and flexibility to meet new requirements head-on without increasing complexity, from rapidly delivering new applications via secure, lightweight containers to scaling infrastructure to meet big data requirements with new and enhanced file systems. Key Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 features to address future IT needs include:

  • Enhanced application development, delivery, portability and isolation through Linux Containers, including Docker, across physical, virtual, and cloud deployments as well as development, test and production environments.

  • Significant file system improvements, including XFS as the default file system, scaling to 500 TB.

  • Cross-realm trust to easily enable secure access for Microsoft Active Directory users across Microsoft Windows and Red Hat Enterprise Linux domains, providing the flexibility for Red Hat Enterprise Linux to co-exist within heterogeneous datacenters.

  • Powerful and secure application runtimes and development, delivery and troubleshooting tools, integrated into the platform and container-ready.

While serving as a catalyst for enterprise innovation, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 also delivers the military-grade security, mission-critical reliability, as well as the performance, and ease-of-use capabilities to efficiently “keep the lights on,” including:

  • Innovative infrastructure components like systemd, a new standard for modernizing the management of processes, services, security and other resources.

  • Built-in performance profiles, tuning and instrumentation for optimized performance and easy scalability.

  • Unified management tooling and an industry-standard management framework with OpenLMI for streamlined administration and system configuration.

  • Enhanced application isolation and security applied via containerization to protect against both unintentional interference and malicious attacks.

Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 answers the heterogeneous realities of modern enterprise IT with a cohesive, unified foundation that enables customers to balance modern demands while reaping the benefits of computing innovation, like Linux Containers and big data, across physical systems, virtual machines and the cloud – the open hybrid cloud.
