The newly released enhancement to Red Hat’s RHEL 6 operating system, Red Hate Enterprise Linux 6.2, is now supported on NetHosting’s Cloud, Dedicated, and VPS server hosting products.
Orem, UT NetHosting, a leader in Cloud, Dedicated Server, VPS Hosting, and shared hosting services since 1994, has recently announced that its offering of hosting products now fully supports Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.2, which contains the next phase of enhancements to Red Hat’s primary operating system, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.2 was released this week, on Tuesday, December 6th, and contains a number of updates to the May 2011 release of RHEL 6.1. Functionality enhancements in RHEL 6.2 include optimization in virtualization, resource management, High Availability (HA) configuration, identity management, storage capabilities, and overall server performance.
These updates allow for increased control over the dissemination of resources in virtualized environments, greater flexibility in cloud server deployment, added administrative control and security, improved storage capabilities through the utilization of iSCSI, as well as accelerated I/O and packet steering to improve network throughput by as much as 30 percent, Red Hat announced with the release of RHEL 6.2.
Mr. Lane Livingston, CEO of NetHosting, stated, “As the efficiency benefits offered in virtualized hosting environments receive greater publicity, the prospect of migration and other reservations may still deter some enterprises from switching over. But cutting-edge operating systems like Red Hat’s RHEL 6.2 are proving the reliability of innovative hosting options like the cloud in both security and overall stability, which is why Red Hat’s newest release is fully supported on our products.”
Other systems supported on NetHosting’s Cloud, Dedicated, and Virtual Private Server products include the latest releases of Fedora, FreeBSD, Ubuntu, Debian, DirectAdmin, cPanel, and Windows.
