Red Hat unveils latest update to its systems lifecycle management tool
New features on Satellite 6.2 include support for disconnected networks and the simplification of workflows through remote execution and flexible provisioning.
Red Hat, a provider of open source technologies, recently announced the launch of the latest version of Red Hat Satellite 6.2.
The updated systems lifecycle management tool comes equipped with a number of novel additions, which include remote execution, as well as new capabilities for container management and security.
Additional features also include container host provisioning, which supports and manages Red Hat's lightweight container operating system, Red Hat Enterprise Linux Atomic Host, as well as support for disconnected environments.
Satellite 6.2. also comes equipped with Red Hat Satellite Capsule Server, a feature which provides federated services useful for scaling. While expanding visibility of the capsule's health, the new feature also allows administrators to formulate and manage capsules in different geographical locations.
Joe Fitzgerald, vice president, Management, Red Hat, shared: "With ever-changing business needs and the speed at which technology is shifting, organisations need to efficiently manage and more securely operate both their traditional and cloud-based infrastructures."
He added: "Red Hat Satellite 6.2 helps meet these needs with increased scalability, support for offline environments as well as enabling system administrators to more easily manage physical, virtual, hybrid cloud and container environments."
