By Digital News Asia June 17, 2014
- Designed to meet both modern data centre and next-gen requirements
- Convergence, from bare metal and virtual machines to the cloud
RED Hat Inc has announced the general availability of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7, the latest major release of the company’s flagship platform.
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 not only lays the foundation for the open hybrid cloud and serves enterprise workloads across converged infrastructures, but it also pushes the operating system beyond today’s position as a commodity platform, the company claimed.
Built to meet modern data centre demands along with next-generation IT requirements, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 powers the spectrum of enterprise IT, from application containers to cloud services, it said in a statement.
Bare metal servers, virtual machines, Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) and Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) are converging to form a robust, powerful data centre environment to meet constantly changing business needs, Red Hat said.
Answering the heterogeneous realities of modern enterprise IT, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 offers 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, the company added.
As with all of Red Hat’s enterprise open source solutions, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 is backed by an extensive global ecosystem of services and support. Read more about the global technology leaders that are rallying behind Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.
Additionally, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 will be supported by Red Hat’s robust hands-on training and certification programme, featuring classroom, virtual and on-site team courses, the company said.
