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.
For more information on either the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 RC or our plans for Red Hat Enterprise Linux Atomic Host – I encourage you to visit: press.redhat.com
Red Hat CEO and President Jim Whitehurst kicks off the 2014 Red Hat Summit… catch up on the latest news via the official Red Hat Summit Blog.
For anyone living in the northern hemisphere – I have some good news: spring is coming. Spring brings with it a lot of excitement, especially as the changing seasons mean that Red Hat will soon be hosting its annual Summit at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, California (April 14th to 18th).

Don’t let the title fool you – we’re not shutting down the newly minted Red Hat Enterprise Linux blog! On the contrary, we’re really just starting out.
However, as many of us here at Red Hat will be on break for the holidays, there will be a gap in blog posts until the first week of 2014.
In the mean time, if you didn’t happen to read last Friday’s post by Russ Doty, I encourage you to read through it to learn more about OpenLMI. Not only is it a solid introduction to the Open Linux Management Infrastructure, but it’s a great example of the type of content that we have lined up for January.
From all of us here on the Red Hat Enterprise Linux team – we wish you a safe and enjoyable holiday season and a happy new year!
Happy Friday everyone!
As a follow-up to Wednesday’s post, the Red Hat Enterprise Linux YouTube channel has just been updated to include another video where the team at Red Hat shares some additional thoughts on the beta of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.
Stay tuned for one additional post later today where guest author Russ Doty reviews OpenLMI (the Open Linux Management Infrastructure).
On December 11, Red Hat made waves in the tech world with the beta launch of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7. Representing Red Hat’s vision for not just the future of Red Hat Enterprise Linux but enterprise IT in general, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 beta delivers a powerful, flexible platform that meets the needs of businesses today while also offering a clear path to the open hybrid cloud.
All of that being said, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 beta introduces a host of new, enhanced and improved features, from Linux Container technology to hosted and in-place upgrades to filesystem updates. While these are good things for IT, it’s easy to become overwhelmed by the multitude of capabilities, like a child staring at a pile of holiday gifts. We’re here to help.
