As the 2010 Red Hat Summit takes place this week in Boston, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 will take a center stage at the event. The next generation of Red Hat’s flagship operating platform, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 entered Beta in April, packed with hundreds of new features for customers, partners and the community, covering physical, virtual and cloud deployments. The Beta includes an update of the Red Hat Enterprise Linux package set with enhancements that cover power management, performance and scalability, reliability, security and resource management, virtualization, greener IT and power/cooling efficiency features and much more.
Red Hat Summit attendees will enjoy detailed insights into all of these features in a wide variety of technical presentations, labs and campgrounds. Meanwhile, executive and partner keynotes will provide strategic roadmaps, while our Red Hat Innovation Awards winners will describe their IT environments and experiences for a wide range of real-world deployments.
The following list gives an indication of the range of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 topics that will be covered – everything from roadmaps to in-depth analysis:
