Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) is a commercial distribution of the Linux operating system for those needing vendor support. It should only be requested if the application requires Red Hat for support. Otherwise, use Cent OS. Please contact your local IT support person to obtain Red Hat. The Red Hat Enterprise Linux operating system supports diverse workloads in physical, virtualized and cloud environments.
Patches for Red Hat Enterprise Linux and access to custom software channels are provided by the RHN Satellite server.
This service is centrally funded through July 2020 (campus site license). A decision will be made before July, 2020 how best to license RedHat on campus and how units should purchase it. The on-prem RHN Satellite service will likely be decommissioned.
