The Future of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7

Red Hat has been hinting at what is to come in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 (RHEL 7) since at least August of 2011. During Red Hat’s recent Summit Event in Boston, the Linux vendor provided significantly more details of what is to come in the next generation of Linux.

Among the new features set to land in version 7 are full support for several technologies currently considered to be tech previews in the latest RHEL 6 update. Linux Container virtualization will be fully supported in RHEL7, including new SELinux and other security-related improvements to ensure full security.
