In order to pursue the ambition to provide a platform that has the stability and meet the challenges of infrastructure in the future, Red Hat launched Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.5 that deliver a series of improvised latest.
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.5 is claimed is designed to create and manage IT projects are large and complex, especially companies that want to implement an open hybrid cloud.
Of security and network to virtualization, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.5 provides the capabilities needed promised to manage the environment. Such as equipment that helps regulate the system quickly, to run SAP applications based on best practices from SAP.
“Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.5 continues to push the integrated security functionality that combines ease of use and safety standards are up to date into the platform. Also included are tools that conform with leading security standards, including OpenSCAP 2.1, which implements security standards Security Content Automation Protocol (SCAP ) 1.2 from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), “said Red Hat, in his official statement.
In financial services and trade-related industries, application latency measured in microseconds, not seconds. Now the latest version of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 also fully supports sub-microsecond clock accuracy over a local area network (LAN) using the Precision Time Protocol (PTP).
Red Hat Enterpise Linux 6.5 can also be used to measure the sales transaction time, improve accuracy at the time of data archived or local or global time synchronization properly.
Thanks to an increase in other tissues in the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.5, system administrators can now also see network activity with a more comprehensive. These new capabilities allow the sysadmin to observe the data IGMP (Internet Group Management Protocol) to create a multicast router port list, multicast groups with active subscribers and the associated interfaces, which are essential for modern network scenarios, including streaming media.
Handling memory intensive applications as visitors Red Hat Enterprise Linux has also been improved, with the memory configuration supports up to 4TB on hypervisor Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM).
KVM hypervisor is also integrated with GlusterFS volume to provide direct access to distributed storage platform, improve performance when accessing Red Hat Storage or GlusterFS volume. Finally, visitors have updated drivers to improve the performance of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.5 which serves as a visitor on a third-party hypervisor supported.
Tracking and Management
As an option the use of applications grow, portability becomes increasingly important. Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.5 allows users to deploy applications in a container picture created using Docker in the choice of their environment: physical, virtual, or cloud.
Docker is an open source project to wrap and run a lightweight and standalone container, container developers save time by eliminating the integration and infrastructure design tasks.
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.5 also stick with the interface controller Solid-State Drive (SSD) and introduces support for SSD-based NVM Express (NVMe). NVMe specification aims to standardize interfaces for PCIe-based SSD and being included in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.5 platform’s position in support of the expansion of the range NVMe-based devices in the future.
This increase has also been added to improve the scalability of storage companies in the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.5. Now possible to configure more than 255 LUNs that are connected to a single iSCSI target.
Additionally, control and recovery from SAN for ISSI and Fibre Channel has increased, and updates to the mechanism kexec / kdump now allows to make debugging (discard) file system configured with a very large capacity memory (as 6TB).
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.5 also makes it easier to track and manage subscriptions consumption across the enterprise, integrating customer tracking workflow into existing business. Increased use, including support for accessing Windows client and server remotely using a new version of the RDP protocol, including desktop Windows 7 and 8, as well as Windows Server 2012.
“Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.5 provides the expected innovation of enterprise Linux operating systems lead the industry while providing a mature platform for business operations, both standardize the operational environment and support critical applications,” said Jim Totton, vice president and general manager, Platform Business unit, Red Hat, as quoted from a statement.
The most recent version of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 is building a portfolio including Red Hat OpenShift and OpenStack, making it into a perfect platform for companies who want to explore the open hybrid cloud systems.
