Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.1 and Red Hat Enterprise Linux Atomic Host GA

Posted on

Hi everyone,

Great news to share...

"Today marks an exciting milestone for Red Hat as we share news of the
general availability of Red Hat Enterprise Linux Atomic Host and Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 7.1. Red Hat Enterprise Linux Atomic Host is an operating
system that is optimized for running the next generation of applications with
Linux containers. Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.1 is the first minor release of
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7, which launched in June 2014.

ABOUT RED HAT ENTERPRISE LINUX ATOMIC HOST
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Atomic Host, based on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.1,
enables enterprises to embrace a container-based architecture to take
advantage of the benefits of development and deployment flexibility and
simplified maintenance, without sacrificing performance, stability, security,
or the value of Red Hat’s vast certified ecosystem.

An application architecture based on Linux containers requires not only the
tools to build and run containers, but also an underlying foundation that is
secure, reliable, enterprise-grade, with an established lifecycle designed to
meet the ongoing requirements of the enterprise over the long term. Red Hat
is committed to offering enterprises a complete and integrated
container-based infrastructure solution to enable easy movement of Red Hat
Enterprise Linux-certified applications across the open hybrid cloud - all
with the product and security lifecycle that enterprise customers require.

ABOUT RED HAT ENTERPRISE LINUX 7.1
The enhancements to the world’s leading enterprise Linux platform offered
by Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.1, as well as the new offerings based on the
update, deliver a flexible, reliable, secure and performant platform that
works across nearly every industry use case.

Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.1 offers improved development and deployment
tools, enhanced interoperability and manageability, and additional security
and performance features. As with all releases of Red Hat Enterprise Linux,
these enhancements are delivered over a stable, secure, 10-year lifecycle
backed by Red Hat’s award-winning global support.

BUT WAIT… THERE’S MORE!
In addition, today Red Hat launched two exciting specialized Red Hat
Enterprise Linux offerings:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux for Real Time is Red Hat’s real-time computing
platform for deadline-oriented and time-sensitive applications. Using a
specialized version of the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 kernel that has been
tuned to deliver consistent low-latency response times, Red Hat Enterprise
Linux for Real Time retains the reliability, scalability, and performance of
the world’s leading enterprise Linux platform.

Red Hat Enterprise Linux for Power, little endian brings Red Hat Enterprise
Linux 7.1 to enterprises using the IBM Power Systems platform with support
for POWER8 on IBM Power Systems based on little endian. Running on POWER8
offers higher performance especially for big data applications through
multi-threading, more cache and greater data bandwidth, while little endian
mode removes an application portability barrier and allows datacenters
running Power Systems to leverage Red Hat’s vast ecosystem of certified
applications originally developed for x86 architecture. This also means that
these certified applications can be more easily migrated between x86-based
and POWER processor-based systems, giving customers the advantages of both
architectures.
