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."
