Red Hat Insights Expands Beyond Analytics to Provide Simplified Linux Management

Red Hat, Inc., a provider of open source solutions, is introducing an expanded set of management capabilities to Red Hat Insights for Red Hat Enterprise Linux, designed to help reduce enterprise Linux complexity across the hybrid cloud without slowing innovation.

These enhancements extend Red Hat’s vision to make the world’s leading enterprise Linux platform more accessible, manageable, and maintainable wherever organizations operate.

Operating system flexibility and stability are vital as IT organizations continue to do more with fewer resources and budgets. Beyond just maintaining day-to-day operations, CIOs must also scale IT systems to support new revenue-generating services. Existing resources and skills must be extended, which, to Red Hat, starts with lowering the skill requirements for managing Linux estates without limiting innovation.

Available through any web browser via, the enhancements to Red Hat Insights distill managing Red Hat Enterprise Linux deployments across the hybrid cloud into a single, intuitive user interface.

These expanded capabilities build on the information provided by existing Red Hat Insights’ predictive analytics, which can detect potential bugs, misconfigurations or security vulnerabilities using Red Hat’s decades of experience running Linux platforms in critical production environments.

When Insights detects one of these issues, IT teams can use this new streamlined management experience to fix security and critical bugs more quickly without needing Red Hat Satellite Server and act on server groups simultaneously using patch templates.

Systems administrators of all levels can detect, assess, and push fixes for potential problems from one interface without ever interacting with the command line or having a deep understanding of Linux management systems like Red Hat Satellite Server. Red Hat Satellite remains Red Hat’s offering for advanced Linux management capabilities while also supporting disconnected or air-gapped deployments.

Red Hat Insights image builder service also helps lower the skills needed for managing Linux estates by enabling IT teams to more quickly and easily build standardized, optimized operating system images that adhere to organization-specific needs for security and compliance.

These images can then be readily deployed across the breadth of the hybrid cloud, from datacenter to public clouds to edge, all from the same interface.

Now, image builder enables IT organizations to add their own software to “gold” images for deployment. Even if a specific version of a tool or component is not native to Red Hat Enterprise Linux, it can still be included in images built with image builder for rapid dissemination, making it far easier to build and launch images that match an enterprise’s own unique standards.

The new management capabilities of Red Hat Insights are included with every Red Hat Enterprise Linux subscription and can be used today.
