Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers


"Dell, a world leader in Internet commerce and infrastructure computing, today announced first-to-market availability of Version 7 of the Red Hat Linux operating system on Dell PowerEdge servers and Dell Precision Workstations worldwide. The new operating system is also available on select configurations of Dell desktop and notebook PC products."

"Customers will see significant enhancements in the network security features of Red Hat Linux 7. Dell and Red Hat, as part of their One Source Alliance, worked closely during the development of Red Hat Linux 7 to ensure smooth installation and interoperability of the operating system on Dell server and client products. Announced last June, the One Source Alliance was designed to accelerate commercial adoption of the Linux operating system and to support businesses building Internet infrastructures. Red Hat Linux 7 includes installation and configuration improvements, increased scalability and manageability, and enhanced security features for more secure communication via the web."

"The immediate availability of Red Hat Linux 7 offers a flexible and stable open source operating environment for customers building or growing their E-commerce initiatives," said Michael Lambert, senior vice president of Dell's Enterprise Systems Group. "Last year, we led the market by offering Red Hat Linux as a pre-install option on Dell PowerEdge servers and Dell Precision Workstations. We've also seen increased demand for Linux on our OptiPlex business desktops. This year we'll lead the market again, by being the first to offer the benefits of Red Hat Linux 7 on select configurations of our desktop and notebook products, as well as our line of servers and workstations."
