The Red Hat Enterprise Linux team is pleased to announce the general
availability of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.1, the first minor release of
our Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 platform.
With Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7, Red Hat redefined the operating system
into a platform designed to facilitate innovation. The enhancements to
the world’s leading enterprise Linux platform offered by Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 7.1, as well as the new offerings based on the update,
deliver a flexible, reliable, secure and performant platform that works
across nearly every industry use case.
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.1 offers improved development and deployment
tools, enhanced interoperability and manageability, and additional
security and performance features. As with all releases of Red Hat
Enterprise Linux, these enhancements are delivered over a stable,
secure, 10-year lifecycle backed by Red Hat’s award-winning global support.
In addition, the general availability of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.1
coincides with the launch of three specialized Red Hat Enterprise Linux
offerings. These include:
- Red Hat Enterprise Linux Atomic Host is also generally available
today, using the tools and frameworks as delivered by Project Atomic.
Created specifically with container-based workloads in mind, Red Hat
Enterprise Linux Atomic Host offers a minimal-footprint, streamlined
platform perfect for running Linux containers in an enterprise environment.
- Red Hat Enterprise Linux for Real Time is Red Hat’s real-time
computing platform for deadline-oriented and time-sensitive
applications. Using a specialized version of the Red Hat Enterprise
Linux 7 kernel that has been tuned to deliver consistent low-latency
response times, Red Hat Enterprise Linux for Real Time retains the
reliability, scalability, and performance of the world’s leading
enterprise Linux platform.
- Red Hat Enterprise Linux for Power, little endian brings Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 7.1 to enterprises using the IBM Power Systems platform
with support for POWER8 on IBM Power Systems based on little endian.
Running on POWER8 offers higher performance especially for big data
applications through multi-threading, more cache and greater data
bandwidth, while little endian mode removes an application portability
barrier and allows datacenters running Power Systems to leverage Red
Hat’s vast ecosystem of certified applications originally developed for
x86 architecture. This also means that these certified applications can
be more easily migrated between x86-based and POWER processor-based
systems, giving customers the advantages of both architectures.
