Red Hat Enterprise Linux

What is Red Hat   

The campus Red Hat Enterprise Linux service provides a mechanism for Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) based hosts to download installation media and receive entitlements, patches and updates. This campus service obviates the need for individual departments, colleges, and schools to purchase Red Hat subscriptions. This campus service enables University-owned computers to install and run a licensed copy of RHEL, and to receive, apply, and manage the latest patches and updates for RHEL. Also, campus based hosts that use this service will not use external bandwidth to receive their updates.

Why Use Red Hat

  • Eliminates the need for departments to purchase licenses for Red Hat Enterprise Linux operating systems
  • Provides vendor supported patches and updates
  • Safe download from University hosted installation media

Note: Red Hat Change Required to Register Servers
