Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 Release Candidate Now Publicly Available

As mentioned during Red Hat Summit 2014 last week, we are excited to announce that Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 Release Candidate (RC) is now publicly available for testing. A pre-release build of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 RC offers a near-final look at Red Hat’s flagship operating system crafted for the open hybrid cloud, building upon the feedback collected during the beta program for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.

Vital for helping Red Hat’s strategic partners facilitate full certification of their applications and systems with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 RC is now accessible to all interested parties, from end users to enterprises, seeking to gain insight into how Red Hat redefines the enterprise operating system.

Key features in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 RC include:

  • Expanded Windows interoperability capabilities, including integration with Microsoft Active Directory domains;

  • Significant file system enhancements, including XFS as the default, scaling to support file systems up to 500 TB;

  • Improved subsystem management through OpenLMI; and

  • Virtual machine (VM) migration from Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 hosts to Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 hosts without downtime or VM modification.
