RedHat Enterprise Linux Server 6.1

Major changes:

On May 19th, Red Hat released the first service pack since the

release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6. As with every service pack, Red

Hat Enterprise Linux 6.1 consolidates all patches and security updates

since the introduction of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6, while

maintaining application compatibility, ISV and IHV support.

The established performance leader as both a virtual machine guest

and hypervisor host, we already set another new SpecVirt record in

multi-core scaling with RHEL6.1 due to lower latencies in networking

and I / O.

Many customers moved immediately to Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 for

the latest in filesystem performance and options. This update updates

our advanced networking storage offerings. FCoE, Data Center Briding

and iSCSI offload allow networked storage to deliver the quality of

service required.

Keeping pace with the latest hardware innovations, we worked with

Intel to support the latest hot-plug processors and memory - as well

as the latest NUMA architectures and PCI express 3.0.

Developers can now process memory with Valgrind improvements and

learn even more about running processes with SystemTap. These

enhancements have been integrated into the Eclipse IDE for a unified

development experience.

Red Hat Enterprise Linux supports the entire data center

architecture and major infrastructure projects like:

  • Moving to IPv6 is easier with optimized networking, firewall and

DHCP / DNS services.

  • Intelligent application consolidation using Control Groups

functionality for resource control of applications and virtual


  • Managing application uptime using transparent proxy or

High-availability Add-Ons, that can fail-over applications, services

or virtual machines.

  • Tracking Red Hat Enterprise Linux deployments and subscriptions by

using the new Subscription Manager, currently only available with 6.1

and for use with RHN

  • Planning user authentication and authorization with LDAP,

kerberos, AD integration or Red Hat Enterprise Identity (IPA)

services, now in Tech Preview
