The value of Red Hat Enterprise Linux

Red Hat Enterprise Linux is the world’s leading enterprise Linux platform,* certified on hundreds of clouds and with thousands of hardware and software vendors. Red Hat Enterprise Linux can be purchased to support specific use cases like edge computing or SAP workloads, but every subscription includes these core benefits:

Subscription benefits

Red Hat Enterprise Linux provides more than an operating system—it also connects you to Red Hat’s extensive hardware, software, and cloud partner ecosystem, and comes with 24x7 support. Red Hat Enterprise Linux 9 is our latest release, but with access to all supported versions and a 10 year life cycle, you can upgrade on your schedule and adopt new features when needed.

Supported architectures

Red Hat Enterprise Linux can be optimized to run on servers or high-performance workstations, and supports a range of hardware architectures like x86, ARM, IBM Power, IBM Z, and IBM LinuxONE. Our deep collaboration with upstream communities and hardware partners makes this possible, bringing you a reliable platform for many use cases and a consistent application environment across physical, virtual, and cloud deployments.

Automation and management

Get a consistent and stable administrative experience, allowing admins to spend more time on innovation—less time on repetitive, error-prone tasks. Red Hat Enterprise Linux includes Red Hat Insights, a managed service for analytics and remediation that delivers continuous vulnerability alerts and targeted guidance to help organizations maximize uptime and avoid emergencies. Plus, with the Red Hat Smart Management add-on you can automate the remediation process.

Install and migration tools

From your first steps installing, migrating, or upgrading Red Hat Enterprise Linux to eventually deploying across multiple clouds, we provide utilities to help. Our migration tools make it easy to get started if you’re coming from CentOS Linux or another distro, and you can create optimized operating system images with Red Hat Enterprise Linux image builder that can handle the details of cloud deployments when you’re ready.

Security and compliance

Simplify how your organization mitigates risk, automates security, and maintains compliance. Red Hat Enterprise Linux includes built-in security features like live kernel patching, security profiles, security standards certification, and a trusted software supply chain to help meet today’s high security and compliance expectations.

Consistent performance

No matter what hardware or workloads you are running, our comprehensive performance monitoring, tracing, and analysis tools help you optimize your systems. Detect performance anomalies, build a comprehensive view of system performance, and apply best-practices through preset tuning profiles so you can get the most out of your investments.
