Insurers who rely on Red Hat for insurance technology optimization can now install, test and provide feedback for what the company expects will be “one of its most ambitious and important operating platform releases to date”—Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.

Now available in beta, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 blurs the lines between virtual, physical and cloud computing to address shifts taking place in the modern IT environment, the company says. Featuring updated core technology, from the kernel to the application infrastructure to the development toolchain, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 is designed to meet the needs of the coming generations of hardware and software technologies.

The major themes of the release include pervasive virtualization, improved scalability and availability, increased power efficiency and delivery of some of the latest software technologies, Red Hat says. Other improvements include new security features and resource management, support for network block storage and automatic detection of display types and support for multiple displays.
