Last Thursday’s post directed you to the Red Hat Blog where we underscored why the operating system remains vitally important. In this related companion piece we’re reminded why quality, a chain of trust, and certifications are integral to enterprise-grade products. In fact, building upon Red Hat Enterprise Linux helps to ensure that your IT infrastructure (everything from software-defined storage to application containerization to OpenStack solutions) benefits from the same trusted technology pool and serves as an optimized stack.

Applications, virtual machines, containers… what do they all have in common? They each operate on top of the solid foundation that is the operating system. In fact, in a world where the pace of technological change is unrelenting, where change is perhaps the only constant, there will always be a need for a reliable platform to build upon. Has the operating system become a modern day utility? Find out here.
At Red Hat, we take pride in the fact that we actively contribute to the projects that are used to build our set of leading enterprise solutions. And when one project’s community is distinguished for their exemplary efforts – we want to recognize them as well.
As such, we are pleased to announce that the GNU Compiler Collection (GCC) has received the Association for Computing Machinery’s (ACM) 2014 Programming Languages Software Award. Awarded to an institution or individuals that have developed a software system with lasting influence, the award recognizes GCC’s 27 years of success and the substantial impact it has had on the software industry, an example of which is its importance to modern datacenter operations.

Last week, as Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 was making waves, the Red Hat Developer Blog posted Part 1 of an interview with Gene Kim, award-winning CTO and co-author of “The Phoenix Project”, and Red Hat IT’s DevOps Enablement team.
If you’re interested in learning more about Red Hat’s newly formed DevOps Enablement team – Part 2 is now available!
Six months ago we announced the beta availability of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7. Two months ago, at Red Hat Summit 2014, we announced the availability of a release candidate for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7. All the while we have been validating what’s new, different, and exciting about what Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 has to offer – including:
- Linux containers as a key application packaging and delivery technology
- Active Directory / Identity Management (IdM) integration
- additional file system choices
- a new and improved installation experience
- managing Linux servers with OpenLMI
- enhancements to both NFS and GFS2
- optimized network management, bandwidth, and security
- the use of KVM Virtualization technology
- running Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 as a guest OS
- and new features that enable you to bolster your network defenses

Earlier this morning, Richard Morrell (@EMEACloudGuy) posted his interview with Tim Burke, VP of Infrastructure Engineering, from Red Hat Summit 2014. Listen here as Tim describes the evolution of Red Hat Enterprise Linux and how infrastructure continues to evolve to meet the needs of developers, new innovations like OpenStack and OpenShift, and even new requirements from segments like telecommunications and financial services.
For those not attending Red Hat Summit 2014 or not tracking the latest news and updates (available on the official Red Hat Summit Blog), you may have missed two important and exciting announcements, namely:
- A Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 Release Candidate (RC) will be made publicly available (starting next week). As a pre-release build of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 RC offers a near-final look at the only operating system crafted for the open hybrid cloud, building upon the feedback collected during the beta program for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.
- Also, Red Hat plans to introduce Red Hat Enterprise Linux Atomic Host as a new addition to the Red Hat Enterprise Linux family. Red Hat Enterprise Linux Atomic Host couples the flexible, lightweight and modular capabilities of Linux Containers with the reliability and security of Red Hat Enterprise Linux in a reduced image size that will enable easy movement of Red Hat Enterprise Linux-certified applications across bare metal systems, virtual machines and private and public clouds.
