Red Hat Subscription Asset Manager - GA Announcement



Dearest Partners,

Red Hat Subscription Asset Manager General Availability Announcement


Red Hat announced today the general availability of Red Hat Subscription Asset Manager 1.0. Unveiled as a Beta program two months ago, Red Hat Subscription Asset Manager (SAM) is an application which is available as part of your Red Hat Enterprise Linux subscription. SAM is designed to manage those Red Hat Enterprise Linux systems which are configured with certificate-based entitlements.


Red Hat Subscription Asset Manager is an on-premise, subscription management application and is a key way for customers to manage their Red Hat Enterprise Linux subscriptions while leveraging the new certificate-based entitlement capability that Red Hat now delivers. SAM serves as a tool to support corporate policies for subscription management, and enhances control and compliance through visibility and reporting. Specifically, SAM serves as a “content gateway” or “proxy server” to deliver updated content to end systems. While SAM is not a standalone product, it represents functionality that will ship alongside future releases of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 and 6.


Specific customer benefits for SAM include:

  • Generate reports centrally on Red Hat Enterprise Linux subscription usage, including all the details for a customer environment.

  • Retrieves detailed subscription information for individual systems, including SLA information.

  • Provides fine-grained control over the Red Hat Enterprise Linux minor releases for individual servers.

  • Enables machines with no connectivity outside of a customer’s data center to receive updates via a content proxy and information about their subscriptions.

  • Enables automated assignment of a subscription to a system when a system is provisioned by third-party tools. Note: An administrator can configure Activation Keys for this purpose.

Note: A dedicated server, i.e., one additional virtual guest or a physical server of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.2 (or greater) on x86-64 is required to run the SAM solution (SAM is not supported on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5).

cheers,
