Red Hat Releases RHEL 6.9 Beta

As the world moves from server-client to cloud-mobile, Red Hat is bringing cloud capabilities to one of the older releases of Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL). Red Hat has released RHEL 6.9 Beta, which supports the next generation of cloud-native applications through an updated RHEL 6 base image.

Red Hat said in a press release, "The Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.9 Beta base image enables customers to migrate their existing Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 workloads into container-based applications – suitable for deployment on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7, Red Hat Enterprise Linux Atomic Host, and Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform."

Since RHEL subscriptions are not locked into any particular release, customers can easily upgrade their infrastructure from RHEL 6 to RHEL 6.9 at any given time.
