Red Hat issues Beta 2 of open source server

Antony Savvas

Red Hat has released the latest beta of its next open source server product, Enterprise Linux 5 Beta 2, available for download now from the company’s website.

The final Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 is expected to be released in early 2007. Red Hat says its next server platform, to compete against Novell’s offering in the open source server space, will offer increased security and improved flexibility.

Beta 2 incorporates an integrated server and storage virtualisation platform.

IDC analyst Al Gillen said, "The incorporation of virtualisation technologies into operating system software is a major industry development that will have a long term impact on how customers design their computer infrastructure, how they deploy, and how they plan for scalability, availability and continuity."
