Coming to you a day early this week and with just a few brief notes on this week’s enterprise Linux news. This blogger will be traveling tomorrow and through the Thanksgiving holiday so look for this regular entry to return December 3. And, as always- let us know what we missed in the comments.
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 was announced this week and the reviewers are busy postng their reactions. According to the press release, “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.”
That’s a mouthful. Joe “Zonker” Brockmeier digs in deeper with today’s Linux.com story on RHEL 6.
Also new this week is ScaleMP’s latest version of its vSMP Foundation server virtualization platform, expanding support for its Linux clustering management. ScaleMP provides high performance computing virtualization, virtual SMP and HPC solutions for cloud and cluster. InformationWeek has the details on the newest updates.
NetApp this week announced a new, unified product line that includes an updated OS, FlexPod for VMware and more. Chris Preimesberger has you covered at eWeek.
We’ll catch you up on enterprise Linux milestones when this Enterprise Linux weekly blog returns in early December.
