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 the infrastructure and application product lifecycle from the beginning. Red Hat Enterprise Linux’s multi-layer breach defense capabilities include automated and repeatable security controls such as the latest cryptographic standards and libraries, SELinux, and application listing. Live patches and remediation are included, enabling you to focus on developing and deploying new software quickly on an OS you can trust.
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 the deployment of your workloads. Red Hat Enterprise Linux offers a combination of automated and repeatable workflows through tools such as image builder, system roles, and the Red Hat Enterprise Linux web console.
Red Hat Enterprise Linux provides best of class performance for your apps across the open hybrid cloud allowing you to identify, analyze and tune your workload performance while you are building applications. With the built-in TuneD profiles, you can tune your system for a variety of different use cases. Red Hat Enterprise Linux also provides kernel backports to select upstream Kernel performance improvements while enabling the same level of application compatibility and stability of 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.
Conquer complexity no matter where or how you choose to deploy–on-premise, in the cloud, containerized, and all the way out to the edge. Red Hat Cloud Access program enables you to use your subscription on Red Hat-certified public clouds.

Contribute to the RHEL community
Influence Red Hat Enterprise Linux development via the upstream community
CentOS Stream is an upstream open source development platform where you can develop, test, and contribute to a continuously delivered distribution that tracks just ahead of Red Hat Enterprise Linux. This is where various Red Hat ecosystem development partners and community members can add their contributions prior to being incorporated into Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
