Red Hat Enterprise Linux
The foundation for your enterprise hybrid cloud
Red Hat® Enterprise Linux® is the world’s leading enterprise Linux platform.* It’s an open source operating system (OS). It’s the foundation from which you can scale existing apps—and roll out emerging technologies—across bare-metal, virtual, container, and all types of cloud environments.
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8.2 now available
The latest release adds new developer tools, additional security certifications, and expands automation capabilities.
Combat intrusions and control compliance
Administrators can set up algorithmic criteria using system-wide security policies so apps automatically use the appropriate cryptographic package. And each subscription comes with Red Hat Insights, a predictive IT analytics service that identifies potential issues before they become problems.
Conquer complexity with integrated management
Built-in management components include a user-friendly web console and application streams, which lets you offer multiple app versions to multiple users. Pair Red Hat Enterprise Linux with Red Hat Smart Management to control your standard operating environments—on-site and across clouds.
Deploy containers on their native OS
Develop apps faster by running Red Hat OpenShift® on containers’ native Linux OS. Build, manage, and share containers using open source tools that let you tailor systems alongside other Open Container Initiative standards-compatible tools.
