- Red Hat Subscription Management
- Any subscription service which uses the proper X.509 certificates to identify the system, installed products, and attached subscriptions is part of Red Hat Subscription Management. This includes Customer Portal Subscription Management (hosted services), Subscription Asset Manager (on-premise subscription service and proxied content delivery), and CloudForms System Engine (on-premise subscription and content delivery services).This option is the default. Red Hat Subscription Management is strongly recommended for organizations that do not run a local Satellite server.
- Red Hat Network (RHN) Classic
- Select the Red Hat Network (RHN) Classic option to use the legacy systems-management features of Red Hat Network. While RHN Classic can be used with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.x systems, it is intended primarily for existing, legacy systems. It is recommended that new installations use Red Hat Subscription Management.
- An RHN Satellite or RHN Proxy
- Use this option in environments with access to a local mirror of the Red Hat Network content.
