Time, and operating system developments wait on no one. Only a few months ago Red Hat releasedRed Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 7 and now the RHEL 7.1 beta has landed on our doorsteps.

This newest RHEL introduces support for the POWER 8 little-endian, hardware architecture support for IBM Power Systems

This update comes with the following improvements:

Red Hat is adopting OpenLMI. This is a standardized remote application programming interface (API). In RHEL 7.1, OpenLMI comes with storage management enhancements and support for thin provisioning in Logical Volume Manager (LVM).

RHEL 7.1 also includes Ceph userspace components and the Ceph RADOS Block Devices (RBD) kernel module for easier access to Ceph block storage devices.

When Windows and Linux servers must live under the same roof, RHEL 7.1 offers improved interoperability with Windows file and print services. This is being done by limiting reliance on Winbind and adding improved integration of Common Internet File System (CIFS) with Red Hat's System Security Services Daemon (SSSD).

To improve security, RHEL 7.1 also comes with support for FreeOTP, a two-factor authentication application for one-time password authentication. This works with the LDAP and Kerberos protocols. The beta also introduces a new Certificate Authority (CA) management tool. This makes it easy for customers using Red Hat's Identity Manager (IdM) -- which integrates Kerberos authentication, directory services, certificate management, DNS, and NTP into a single service -- to change a CA certificate and alter the trust chain.

It seems odd that while 88% of businesses are undergoing some kind of digital transformation[1], only 25%[2] of them have a clear understanding of their digital transformation journey. So what's driving so many businesses to pursue digital with such recklessness? Broadly speaking, the reason is simply the unprecedented rate of change in digital solutions and services. As we ride the digital tidal wave, consumers and employees change their expectations, ...
