Red Hat Inc. announced today the general availability of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7, the latest major release of the company’s flagship platform. Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 not only lays the foundation for the open hybrid cloud and serves enterprise workloads across converged infrastructures, but it also pushes the operating system beyond today’s position as a commodity platform. Built to meet modern datacenter demands along with next-generation IT requirements, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 powers the spectrum of enterprise IT, from application containers to cloud services.
On its first day of general availability, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 already claims multiple world record-breaking benchmark results running on HP ProLiant servers. Note that Red Hat Software Collections 1.1 already supports the 7 release.
