Red Hat Enterprise Linux
Easy access to a more secure OS, larger ecosystem, and a broader selection of languages and developer tools on which to build and deploy apps in the hybrid cloud.
Security and compliance
Mitigate the risk of a vulnerability by making security and compliance a part of your infrastructure and application product lifecycle from the beginning. RHEL’s multi-layer breach defense include automated and repeatable security controls such as SELinux, and application listing. Live kernel patches and remediation are included to help you deploy new software quickly on an OS you can trust. Built-in RHEL utilities also use OpenSSL 3, so you can take advantage of new security ciphers for encrypting and protecting your information.
Automation and management
Spend more time on innovation and less on repetitive tasks. With Red Hat Enterprise Linux, you get a consistent, stable experience for automating and streamlining workload deployment. Access automated and repeatable workflows through tools such as image builder, system roles, and the RHEL web console. Automation and management capabilities make it easier to standardize deployment at scale, and simplify the day-to-day administration of your systems.
Red Hat Enterprise Linux provides best-of-class performance for your applications across the open hybrid cloud, so you can identify, analyze and tune your workload performance as you build applications. Tune your system for a variety of workload profiles with built-in TuneD profiles. Kernel backports let you access upstream Linux performance improvements while ensuring application compatibility and stability in your existing Linux kernel.
Container development tools
Red Hat Enterprise Linux delivers integrated container development, runtime tools, and secure base images to provide the consistent, yet flexible, host you need to power container adoption anywhere you choose to deploy images.
Conquer complexity no matter where or how you choose to deploy–on-premises, in the cloud, containerized, and all the way out to the edge. With the Red Hat Cloud Access program, you can use your developer subscription on Red Hat-certified public clouds.
Red Hat Enterprise Linux's new edge management helps organizations securely manage and scale deployments at the edge. The benefits of zero-touch provisioning, system health visibility, and quick security remediations are available from a single interface. These capabilities give you control and peace of mind at every stage of an edge system’s life.
