Red Hat Releases RHEL 7 With New Filesystem, Docker Support

Red Hat today formally announced the availability of its highly anticipated next-generation Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL 7) platform, which has been in development since 2010. Among its features, RHEL 7 includes a new filesystem that can scale to 500 terabytes as well as support for Docker container virtualization technology.

RHEL 7 is the first major milestone update release for Red Hat since RHEL 6 was officially launched in November 2010. A lot has happened in the Linux development community and the broader technology landscape over the last four years, and RHEL 7 is an effort to reflect that change.
