NetHosting to Provide Support for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.2 on Cloud, Dedicated Server and VPS Hosting Products

NetHosting, provider of custom hosting solutions, has announced that its suite of hosting products will now be able to provide complete support for Red Hat (News - Alert) Enterprise Linux 6.2. Released earlier this week, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.2 features advanced improvements to the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 which is its primary operating system.

The various updates that have been included in RHEL 6.2 include capabilities for optimization in virtualization, enhanced management of resource and identity, High Availability (HA) configuration, as well as improved storage capabilities and optimized server performance. By including these new updates into RHEL 6.2, users will benefit from more control over resource distribution in virtualized environments and increased levels of flexibility in deployment of cloud server.

Users will also be able to take advantage of additional administrative control and security and optimization of storage capabilities via implementation of iSCSI. Other advantages delivered by RHEL 6.2 include faster I/O and packet steering to enable close to 30 percent enhancement in network throughput.

In a release, Lane Livingston, CEO of NetHosting, said that, “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.”

Support for additional systems on Cloud, Dedicated, and Virtual Private Server products from NetHosting include new releases for Fedora, FreeBSD, Ubuntu (News - Alert), Debian, DirectAdmin, cPanel, and Windows.

NetHosting provides business enterprises of all sizes with an extensive range of custom hosting solutions. The company's suite of products include multiple cloud hosting and storage options in addition to customized, managed, and virtual hosting solutions.

In other news, Red Hat, Inc. has announced that it has started working on 2012 Fedora Scholarship program, where it recognizes college students across the globe for their contributions to free software and the Fedora Project, a Red Hat-sponsored and community-supported open source collaboration.
