LINUX PLATFORMS - Red Hat Satellite

The best way to manage your Red Hat infrastructure

Red Hat® Satellite is an infrastructure management product specifically designed to keep Red Hat Enterprise Linux® environments and other Red Hat infrastructure running efficiently, with security, and compliant with various standards.


What Is Satellite?

Red Hat Satellite is a systems management solution that makes Red Hat infrastructure simple to deploy, scale, and manage across physical, virtual, and cloud environments. Satellite enables users to control the full lifecycle of Red Hat systems and ensure that they are running efficiently, securely, and compliant with various standards. By automating most tasks related to maintaining systems, Satellite helps organizations increase efficiency, reduce operational costs, and enable IT to better respond to strategic business needs.

Satellite is composed of a centralized Satellite Server. Depending on your data center setup, organization design, and geographic locations, you can have local Capsule Servers, which are proxies that locally manage content and obtain subscription, registration, and content from the central Satellite Server.
