Red Hat stretches Linux system management tentacle

Satellite 5.3 of love

High performance access to file storage

Software maker Red Hat has announced the availability of its on-premises systems management product.

Red Hat Network Satellite 5.3 is the company’s first version of its platform to be based on the open source “Spacewalk” project.

Spacewalk, first announced in June 2008, manages software content updates for Red Hat-derived disties such as Fedora, CentOS and Scientific Linux.

RHNS 5.3 comes loaded with a Linux boot server, dubbed Cobbler, for the speedy config of systems on the network, said Red Hat.

Cobbler assists in DHCP, DNS and package mirroring management. It also allows new systems and virtualised installs to be automatically configured.

The RHN Satellite has beefed up Spacewalk’s code base with improved support for multiple orgs.

However, given its elevated status, the software isn’t free for new users.

US prices range between $12,500 per annum for Satellite Server, or $2,500 per annum for the Proxy Server. Existing customers get a free upgrade to version 5.3. ®
