Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 Enters Beta

RHEL 7 is based on the Fedora 19 community Linux release and the Linux 3.10 kernel, both of which first debuted in July. Red Hat has been hardening the Fedora 19 base over the last several months to ensure enterprise-grade stability, Ron Pacheco, senior manager of Platform Product Management at Red Hat, told eWEEK.

One of the big changes coming in RHEL 7 is the move from Ext4 to XFS as the default file system. –
