Coupled with the Red Hat Enterprise Linux Smart Management Add-On, Red Hat Satellite makes Linux more deployable, scalable, manageable, and consistent by giving you robust system administration capabilities like:
- Patch management.
- Configuration management.
NEW! Red Hat Satellite now gives you deeper and richer knowledge and reporting, including the ability to:
- Report per-system expiration, SLA, or contract.
- Collect and report on critical crash information via the new Automatic Bug Reporting Tool (ABRT) feature.
NEW! Inter-Satellite sync lets 1 Red Hat Satellite instance pull content from another Red Hat Satellite instance. With the 5.6 release, you can now retain and refine channel (or repository) access permissions when synchronizing from 1 Red Hat Satellite instance to another. Administrators of each instance in a synchronized exchange now have finer control over access permissions per instance, per organization, and, by extension, per channel.
NEW! Red Hat Satellite now provides a simple backup of the Satellite server without requiring a scheduled outage window for downtime.
NEW! Red Hat Satellite now has an installation option for deploying the Red Hat Satellite admin-managed (embedded) database on a separate Red Hat Enterprise Linux system, providing significant scaling without requiring the expertise of a database administrator (DBA).
