Red Hat Enterpise Linux for ARM reaches Closed Beta

26/06/2015 by Sharon Shahzad


RED HAT is continuing its slew of announcements from its Boston Summit with the reveal of a preview edition of Red Hat Enterprise Linux for ARM processors (RHELA). 

RHELA isn't up for grabs generally just yet, but it is expected to be ready later this year or early 2016, cementing the company's commitment to enterprise cloud on tiny chips.

Already there are over 40 OEMs and vendors working with Red Hat on the Early Access programme since it was first launched in July 2014 with the goal of "enhancing partner collaboration and facilitating partner-initiated system designs based on the 64-bit capable ARMv8-A architecture".

It's these members that will be soak testing the beta ready for final release.

RHELA will be a relation of, but not identical to, the x86 version, with most features intact and working on 64-bit ARMv8-A chips, most importantly to a common standard, which as ever with Red Hat is the goal.

The company says that "it also brings a familiar environment and tooling to our existing customers, thus offering a seamless user experience across architectures and simplifying porting and development efforts for our partners, ISVs and enterprise developers".
