It’s been a long time coming, but Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 is officially available. Released on Wednesday, RHEL 6 offers a host of improvements and new features not found in its predecessors, including virtualization and performance enhancements, as well as a new Linux kernel.
RHEL 6, which was released as a public beta in April, offers a particular focus on features to enable massive scalability, as well as memory improvements. Linux Planet has the story on the latest installment of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Some updates take longer than others.
Linux vendor Red Hat (NYSE: RHAT) today officially released Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 (RHEL 6). The new RHEL 6 operating system includes new Linux kernel, scalability, virtualization and performance improvements over its predecessors.
“RHEL 6 is not a point of a new product,” Paul Cormier, Red Hat’s executive vice president of engineering, said during the RHEL 6 launch event. “This is the culmination of 10 years of development, learning and partnering to get to the point now where we feel that RHEL 6 is at the heart of the data center.”
