"Red Hat has launched an internet-based service to help administrators deploy and manage distribution of the Linux operating system."

"The subscription service, called the Red Hat Network, provides update management and customised preferences for security alerts. According to Red Hat, the service will double system administrator productivity as well as enhance the security, reliability and performance of networked systems."

"Red Hat Network's launch coincides with the release of Red Hat 7.0, which as previously reported provides improved security, optimised software for higher-end Intel chips and a greater range of desktop applications...."

"For enterprise users, Red Hat Network eases pressure on support staff by allowing the automation of mundane system management and update tasks. Also, service providers can offer enhanced services and functionality to their customers through a managed deployment of Red Hat Linux that is more consistent and easily managed."
