Red Hat Satellite 6.5 Beta Program

Red Hat Satellite 6.5 beta - Open to all Satellite customers

Thank you for your interest in the Satellite 6.5 beta program!

The Red Hat Satellite 6.5 Beta represents the next minor release of the Satellite 6 product line, which was originally introduced in 2014. For version 6.5, customers can expect to see a focus on support for hosts running Red Hat® Enterprise Linux® 8 and support for FIPS on the Satellite host. Customers will also see rich capabilities added across areas of security, content management, provisioning, and usability .

Red Hat Satellite beta programs provide interested customers and stakeholders the opportunity to learn about new capabilities planned for the Satellite offering and to help identify bugs and shape the future of the product. Red Hat invites you to download our beta code and assist us by evaluating the new functionality, product improvements, and code quality.

Please be sure to provide us with your feedback...it is extremely important to us! Any bugs can be reported using Bugzilla
