Red Hat Insights: Predictive analytics for Red Hat Enterprise Linux

Product overview

As existing workloads evolve and deployments grow in size and complexity, risk management is a key challenge for enterprise IT. To succeed, operations departments need to rapidly deploy new environments and ensure that systems scale reliably. Red Hat® Insights helps customers benefit from the experience and technical knowledge of Red Hat Certified Engineers (RHCEs®) and makes it easier for users to identify, prioritize, and resolve issues before business operations are affected.

Red Hat Insights provides proactive analytics across complete, hybrid infrastructures. It also is now included in all supported versions of Red Hat Enterprise Linux®, enabling users to detect issues, enhance visibility into their deployments, improve security, and prescribe remediation through tools like Red Hat Satellite.

Delivered as a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) offering, Red Hat Insights takes advantage of Red Hat’s expertise as a leader in open source software to generate tailored remediations in real time. Red Hat Insights uses intelligent data to pinpoint technical risks and help IT resolve problems before business is affected. This modern, integrated platform supports operational analytics and automated resolution across physical, virtual, container, and private and public cloud environments.


Red Hat Insights provides ongoing, in-depth analysis of an organization’s Red Hat infrastructure to proactively identify key threats to security, performance, and stability. By combining granular risk assessment, tailored remediation steps, and automated resolution, Red Hat Insights transitions IT from reactive to proactive and intelligent infrastructure management.
