Red Hat, Inc., the world's leading provider of open source solutions, today announced the general availability of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6, the latest major release of the company's flagship operating platform, setting the scene for its server operating systems for the next decade. With Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6, Red Hat defines new standards for commercial open source operating environments. Designed to support today's flexible and varied enterprise architectures, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 delivers the comprehensive foundation customers need for physical, virtualized and cloud deployments.

Available for almost a decade, Red Hat Enterprise Linux has gained a reputation for performance and reliability and presents a high-value alternative to proprietary operating systems. Today customers all over the world rely on Red Hat Enterprise Linux for their most mission-critical workloads.

"For nearly eight years, Red Hat Enterprise Linux has delivered outstanding value and performance for our enterprise IT infrastructure,” said Gordon Penfold, chief technology officer at British Airways. “We plan to migrate our mission-critical systems to Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 and anticipate that it will provide us with the flexibility to deploy our applications to fit our specific business needs, crossing bare metal, virtualized and cloud deployments."

“Building on our strategic use of Red Hat Enterprise Linux, scaling from physical to virtual and cloud environments, we have been an active participant in the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 beta program," said Motti Finkelstein, Managing Director at Citi. "The core capabilities of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6, including improvements in security, performance and power management, will better enable us to scale to the largest systems on the market today while providing continued flexibility and great efficiency."

“By employing the new leading-edge features of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 including improved performance and optimized resource management, we look forward to being able to provide our customers with optimal cloud services to meet their needs," said Mamoru Murakami, director of IP Technology Department, Business Network Services Division at NTT Communications.

"Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 complements broader use of Linux and open source software across a range of verticals and particularly for large service provider and enterprise datacenter users by giving customers greater flexibility," said Jay Lyman, Enterprise Software Analyst in the Commercial Adoption of Open Source (CAOS) team at The 451 Group. "The release also addresses Linux deployment at greater scale thanks to kernel and KVM performance and feature enhancements in areas such as security, scheduling, power savings, control groups, resource and system management and multi-tenancy."

Incorporating software technologies developed by Red Hat, its partners and the open source community over the past three years, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 delivers extensive new features that span the product. These combine to offer customers and solution providers a world-class platform on which to develop and deploy applications. Enhancements range from kernel improvements for resource management, RAS, performance, scalability, virtualization and power saving, through a greatly extended and standards-compliant development environment, to a comprehensive range of updated server and desktop applications. It is designed to improve agility, lower costs and reduce IT complexity for customers.

Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 is a compelling choice for users looking to migrate from UNIX to Linux and is a powerful alternative to Microsoft Windows Server. By setting the standard for open source computing, Red Hat Enterprise Linux also delivers industry-leading innovation for private and public cloud deployments.

“Red Hat Enterprise Linux has for years been the mission-critical platform of choice for many enterprise companies. Customers such as British Airways, Citi and NTT Communications have become trusted partners in the development of the Red Hat Enterprise Linux platform. We are now entering an era of enterprise computing where flexibility, portability and interoperability are more important than ever. And today, we are delivering the platform that customers need. This has always been our focus,” said Paul Cormier, executive vice president and president, Products and Technologies at Red Hat. “What we are delivering is more open, more reliable and more comprehensive than other products on the market. The future is here with a platform designed to take customers into the next generation with virtualization and cloud.”

Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 includes hundreds of technical feature enhancements and additions that offer customers a significant technology leap over marketplace alternatives. It offers:

• A highly optimized application platform for large-scale, centrally managed enterprise deployments.
• Enhanced efficiency with the latest generation of highly scalable hardware systems.
• Industry-leading virtualization performance, flexibility and security for both host and guest environments.
• Extensive support for features designed to minimize ecological impact and carbon footprint of IT systems.
• A platform suitable for long-term, stable deployment while able to incorporate new technologies for physical, virtual and cloud deployments.

At the heart of the factors contributing to the leadership of Red Hat Enterprise Linux as an industry standard is its extensive ecosystem of certified hardware platforms and software applications. Red Hat's goal is to offer unmatched choice to its customers, and its simple “certify once, deploy anywhere” model offers software providers and customers enhanced deployment flexibility. Additionally, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 is designed to be as “future proof” as possible, optimizing the capabilities of today's system hardware from partners such as AMD, Cisco, Dell, Fujitsu, Hitachi, HP, IBM, Intel and NEC, while facilitating the ability to incorporate the capabilities of tomorrow's systems.

"Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 was built to take advantage of the core density and power efficiency available in industry-leading servers, such as those based on AMD Opteron™ 6000 and 4000 series platforms," said Margaret Lewis, director of Software Strategy at AMD (NYSE: AMD). "Combining the impressive performance, scalability, virtualization and efficiency benefits of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 with AMD-based server solutions can help our joint customers to reduce costs and expand the capabilities of their computing infrastructure."

“With the proliferation of Linux-based computing environments, the combination of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 and the Cisco Unified Computing System allows customers to achieve greater IT productivity while delivering lower total cost of ownership, greater agility and enhanced security," said Lew Tucker, vice president and chief technology officer of Cloud Computing at Cisco. “Virtualization technology has never been more essential, helping fuel consolidation efforts and enabling the transition to cost-effective and scalable cloud computing models. At Cisco, we’re especially proud of the value we are delivering, with Red Hat, to customers around our unified system with policy-based management and hardware-enabled virtual I/O to yield greater control, visibility and performance for virtualized applications.”

"Red Hat Enterprise Linux coupled with Dell PowerEdge servers enables customers to build, manage and maintain an efficient datacenter while preserving flexibility and choice," said Tim Mattox, vice president of Enterprise Product Marketing at Dell. "The technology leadership delivered with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 on Dell platforms provides exceptional value over RISC alternatives."
