Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
RALEIGH, N.C.--Red Hat, Inc. has announced the Red Hat Network
Education Channels, designed to support students and educators with
access to the Red Hat Linux 7.3 operating system via Red Hat
Network. Red Hat Linux 7.3 is a highly configurable operating
system (OS) designed to deliver what educational institutions need
for flexible Internet-based computing. These channels will ease and
accelerate the adoption of open source software within the
education community nationwide.
Red Hat will offer two channels:
- The Educational Channel will be tailored for teachers and IS
administrators, as well as high school and university
- The K-12 Linux Terminal Server Project Channel will enable K-12
teachers and IS administrators to set up computer science labs with
an Open Lab architecture, which combines affordable open source
software with thin client hardware, reducing maintenance and
hardware costs for schools.
Both channels provide free Red Hat Network access for one
machine. More information on the Red Hat Network Education Channels
and subscription information can be found at http://rhn.redhat.com/info/education/.
Red Hat Network delivers fine-grained management and control of
Red Hat Linux-based systems, regardless of how many are deployed.
Red Hat Network represents the accumulation of Red Hat Linux
technology and know-how, optimally packaged, delivered and
installed on each system. Currently, there are more than 500,000
systems subscribed to Red Hat Network for software updates for
their Red Hat Linux systems.
