- And, new features that enable you to bolster your network defenses

10 June 2014 Redhat was pleased to announce the general availability of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7, the latest major release of our flagship platform.

As stated in this morning’s press release:

“Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 not only lays the foundation for the open hybrid cloud and serves enterprise workloads across converged infrastructures; it pushes the operating system beyond today’s position as a commodity platform. Built to meet modern datacenter demands along with next-generation IT requirements, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 powers the spectrum of enterprise IT, from application containers to cloud services.”

Addressing Next-Generation IT Requirements

Enterprise IT does not exist in a static vacuum; technology is dynamic, with new innovations emerging almost daily, promising improved operational efficiencies as well as providing the ability to respond to radically-evolving business requirements. Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 offers customers the agility and the flexibility to meet these new needs head-on without increasing complexity, from rapidly delivering new applications via secure, lightweight containers to scaling infrastructure to meet big data requirements with new and enhanced file systems. Key Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 features to address next-generation IT needs include:

- Enhanced application development, delivery, portability and isolation through Linux Containers, including Docker, across physical, virtual, and cloud deployments as well as development, test and production environments.

- Significant file system improvements, including XFS as the default file system, scaling to 500 TB.

- Cross-realm trust to easily enable secure access for Microsoft Active Directory users across 
Microsoft Windows and Red Hat Enterprise Linux domains, providing the flexibility for Red Hat Enterprise Linux to co-exist within heterogeneous data centers.

- Powerful and secure application runtimes and development, delivery and troubleshooting tools, integrated into the platform and container-ready.

Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7: Redefining the Enterprise OS

Managing the Modern Datacenter

Beyond providing the capabilities to meet emerging IT innovation, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 also addresses today’s technology needs. With growing requests for complex systems, on-demand services and robust security, IT teams need more control, more clarity and more scalability without having to deploy dozens of specialized tools. Independent of deployment scale, scope or complexity, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 serves as not only a catalyst for enterprise innovation, but also delivers the military-grade security and the mission-critical reliability, as well as the performance, the features and the ease-of-use to efficiently “keep the lights on,” including:

- Innovative infrastructure components like systemd, a leading standard for modernizing the management of processes, services, security and other resources.
- Built-in performance profiles, tuning and instrumentation for optimized performance and easy scalability.
- Unified management tooling and an industry-standard management framework with OpenLMI for streamlined administration and system configuration.
- Enhanced application isolation and security applied via containerization to protect against both unintentional interference and malicious attacks.

Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 – Setting World Records At Launch 

Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 already claims multiple world record-breaking benchmark results running on HP ProLiant servers, including:

SPECjbb2013 Multi-JVM Benchmark

- One processor world record for both max-jOPS (16,252) and critical-jOPS (4,721) metrics
- Two processor world record for both max-jOPS (119,517) and critical-jOPS (36,411) metrics
- Four processor world record for both max-jOPS (202,763) and critical-jOPS (65,950) metrics

The SPECjbb2013 benchmark is an industry-standard measurement of Java-based application performance developed by the Standard Performance Evaluation Corporation (SPEC). Application performance remains an important attribute for many customers, and this set of results demonstrates Red Hat Enterprise Linux’s continued ability to deliver world-class performance, alongside support from our ecosystem of partners and OEMs. With these impressive results to its name already, we like to think that this is only the tip of the iceberg for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7’s achievements, especially since the platform is designed to power a broad spectrum of enterprise IT workloads.

SPEC and SPECjbb are registered trademarks of the Standard Performance Evaluation Corporation. Results as of June 10, 2014. See www.spec.org for more information. For further details on SPECjbb2013 benchmark results achieved on HP ProLiant XL220a Gen8 v2 (1P), HP ProLiant DL580 Gen8 (2P), and HP ProLiant DL580 Gen8 (4P) servers, see: http://h20195.www2.hp.com/V2/GetDocument.aspx?docname=4AA5-3283ENW&cc=us&lc=en
