With all the talk this week about SUSE after the SUSECon and openSUSE Summit, we almost forgot about the other major enterprise Linux vendor – Red Hat. The latest version, 6.5, has just been released to those with a support subscription.
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.5 has got a few updates in some key areas. Security is enhanced with a OpenSCAP 2.1 and a centralized certificate trust store. Networking has been improved so that you can have more control and a better view of what exactly is happening on your LAN. Virtualisation has been improved so that sysadmins can now enable and disable extra cores in active guest machines. And there are a number of improvements to cloud operations that are detailed on the announcement blog.
RHEL 6.5 is available now. For those wanting to be in on the ecosystem, the Fedora 20 beta was also released recently as well.
