Security, reliability, and control for the Datacenter
The platform for mission-critical computing
Every day, millions of dollars in trades, purchases, and analysis are generated on systems running Red Hat Enterprise Linux. With support for every major hardware platform and thousands of commercial and custom applications, Red Hat Enterprise Linux has become the global standard for enterprise datacenters.
In this time of massive and disruptive technological change, Red Hat Enterprise Linux provides businesses with the stability and flexibility they need to not only survive, but to thrive, as they transition to the next generation of IT computing.
A trusted datacenter platform
Red Hat Enterprise Linux is the foundation of a long-term IT strategy, supporting all leading hardware architectures with compatibility across releases and including a seven-year update and support lifecycle (optionally extendable to ten years). Modular, flexible, robust architecture and management tools offer more control and scalability, and a portfolio of Add-On options enhance infrastructure and application availability.
Application performance, scalability, and security
New standards in multi-core and virtual systems require a platform that can manage complexity scaling up or out to meet business needs. Red Hat Enterprise Linux has proven performance on systems with over a hundred cores and terabytes of memory, making it suitable for the largest enterprise application deployments. With technology designed specifically for monitoring, managing, and securing applications, Red Hat Enterprise Linux is an ideal guest on any of the major virtualization platforms.
Delivers flexibility and control across IT infrastructures
Red Hat Enterprise Linux allows businesses to deploy physical, virtual, and cloud computing within their datacenters. Red Hat technologies span all environments, removing barriers, increasing efficiency, and leveraging employee skills. Integrated virtualization allows physical and virtual deployments to interoperate, while fine-grained control of compute resources (e.g., CPU, memory, networking, and I/O) allows businesses to manage application and guest service-level agreements (SLAs). Power management features reduce datacenter carbon footprint, and enhanced interoperability simplifies integration into Microsoft Windows Active Directory environments.
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server is a versatile platform that can be deployed on physical systems, as a guest on the major hypervisors, or in the cloud.
Hardware partners, ISVs, and customers depend on the stability of the Red Hat Enterprise Linux core system infrastructure, provided by published interfaces (kABI, core libraries, and service infrastructure) that Red Hat assures through and across releases. Supported hardware ranges from a single socket to the largest systems produced by our partners. Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server also includes a complete LAMP stack (Apache/Tomcat, PHP/Perl/Python, MySQL/PostgreSQL), file and print services (NFS, CIFS/SMB, CUPS), and authentication services (openldap, kerberos5).
