Red Hat Simplifies Management for Red Hat Enterprise Linux Across the Hybrid Cloud
Red Hat, Inc., the world's leading provider of open source solutions, today introduced an expanded set of management capabilities to Red Hat Insights for Red Hat Enterprise Linux, designed to help reduce enterprise Linux complexity across the hybrid cloud without slowing innovation. These enhancements extend Red Hat's vision to make the world's leading enterprise Linux platform more accessible, manageable and maintainable wherever organizations operate.
Red Hat's own research indicates that by combining Red Hat Insights existing predictive analytics with these new and enhanced management capabilities, IT organizations can find IT issues up to 90% faster and remediate them nearly 66% faster across the hybrid cloud. This effectively lets Red Hat Insights serve as a skills leveler for IT organizations so that even as they face resource constraints, systems can more readily be kept online and free of critical flaws without extensive Linux expertise.
According to IDC1, "Customers desire flexibility in their deployments and prefer to limit the number of operating systems that they need to support with their staff" and "Supporting multiple redundant operating system environments could cost an enterprise significantly more both directly in terms of licensing and maintenance and in terms of staff overhead that is needed to maintain them."
Operating system flexibility and stability are vital as IT organizations continue to do more with fewer resources and budgets. Beyond just maintaining day-to-day operations, CIOs must also scale IT systems to support new revenue-generating services. Existing resources and skills must be extended, which, to Red Hat, starts with lowering the skill requirements for managing Linux estates without limiting innovation.
A simplified Red Hat Enterprise Linux management experience
When Insights detects one of these issues, IT teams can use this new streamlined management experience to more quickly fix security and critical bugs without needing Red Hat Satellite Server and act on server groups simultaneously using patch templates. Systems administrators of all levels can detect, assess and push fixes for potential problems from one interface without ever interacting with the command line or having a deep understanding of Linux management systems like Red Hat Satellite Server. Red Hat Satellite remains Red Hat's offering for advanced Linux management capabilities while also supporting disconnected or air-gapped deployments.
Red Hat Insights image builder service also helps lower the skills needed for managing Linux estates by enabling IT teams to more quickly and easily build standardized, optimized operating system images that adhere to organization-specific needs for security and compliance. These images can then be readily deployed across the breadth of the hybrid cloud, from datacenter to public clouds to edge, all from the same interface.
Now, image builder enables IT organizations to add their own software to "gold" images for deployment. Even if a specific version of a tool or component is not native to Red Hat Enterprise Linux, it can still be included in images built with image builder for rapid dissemination, making it far easier to build and launch images that match an enterprise's own unique standards.
