Red Hat Satellite 6.4 Beta Program

Red Hat Satellite 6.4 beta - Open to all Satellite customers

Thank you for your interest in the Satellite 6.4 beta program!

The Red Hat Satellite 6.4 Beta represents the next minor release of the Satellite 6 product line, which was originally introduced in 2014. For version 6.4, customers can expect to see a continuation of the focus placed on the Satellite 6.3 monthly z-stream releases, including increased stability, supportability, and enhanced configuration and content management.
