Red Hat's New RHEL and its Cloud Computing Strategy Move Forward Together

Red Hat has been making all kinds of noise around its OpenStack cloud computing plans, and has said that its revenues will get a boost next year from OpenStack services, but let's not forget that the company's guaranteed door into many enteprises is Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL). Now, Red Hat has delivered a new version 6.5 of RHEL, and the company notes that it "is designed for those who build and manage large, complex IT projects, especially enterprises that require an open hybrid cloud." As is becoming clear, Red Hat's enterprise Linux strategy is married to its OpenStack strategy for good.

The Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform is positioned to serve as the foundation for OpenStack-powered cloud deployments. Many enterprises are going to use Red Hat's OpenStack tools and the new version of RHEL in tandem. RHEL 6.5 includes a raft of netoworking, security and virtualization enhancements designed to serve IT departments focused on heterogenous platforms and hybrid clouds. The enhancements include, according to Red Hat's announcement:

"Thanks to...networking enhancements in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.5, system administrators now have a more comprehensive view of network activity. These new capabilities enable sysadmins to inspect IGMP (Internet Group Management Protocol) data to list multicast router ports, multicast groups with active subscribers and their associated interfaces, all of which are important to many modern networking scenarios, including streaming media."

"Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.5 continues Red Hatís commitment to improving the overall virtualization experience and includes several improvements that make it a compelling choice for running in virtualized environments. Sysadmins can now dynamically enable or disable virtual processors (vCPUs) in active guests, making it an ideal choice for elastic workloads. The handling of memory intensive applications as Red Hat Enterprise Linux guests has also been improved, with configurations supported for up to 4TB of memory on the Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM) hypervisor. The KVM hypervisor also integrates with GlusterFS volumes to provide direct access to the distributed storage platform, improving performance when accessing Red Hat Storage or GlusterFS volumes."
