Red Hat Enterprise Linux Gets Updated
Red Hat Linux has just released its latest server business operating system called Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.1. This will be the first major update to the platform since November 2010. The new version features optimized KVM virtualization, new hardware support, improved operational efficiency and high availability improvements. KVM stands for Kernel-based Virtual Machine and it allows users to gain better performance than when using virtual machine systems that rely on user-space drivers.
There are also better tools for developing and monitoring code. Red Hat’s competitors, CentOS and Scientific Linux, both Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) clones are having a tough time keeping up with its own system. CentOS has been lagging behind RHEL for the past few months with some users tired of waiting for CentOS waiting to catch up to Red Hat, others are jumping ship to Scientific Linux.
In the meanwhile, Red Hat is proud to release a better, stronger, cloud-friendly Linux platform at the same time its rivals are falling behind, and hopefully will remain in the lead for years to come.
