changes in RHEL6 vs RHEL5
 
Hello,

Please have a look at the following article (and related articles)
http://epistolatory.blogspot.com/2010/12/rhel-6-part-iii-first-impressions-from.html

Quick note: Changing OS because it's new may not be the best business decision. I think that I would start with a question "What functionality/improvements RHEL 6 offer that we need and we don't have with RHEL 5 ?"

Kind Regards,

Hi all,

Im looking for a good doc/presentation/video that shows the changes made in
RHEL6 comparing it with RHEL5.

I need it to convince my boss to update to RHEL 6 some non critical servers to test it on a non critical (but real) enviroment.

any help?

Thanks in advance

Thank you

interesting article,

You are right when you say that may not be the best bussines decission, but
for my previous experience choosing a non important (but real enviroment) is
good to check the news and stay tunned with the changing technology and not
became obsolete.

Thanks again,

Greetings,

changes in RHEL6 vs RHEL5
 
What about http://www.redhat.com/rhel/server/details/ ? Straight from the horse's mouth.

I attended a seminar on Red Hat Enterprise Linux Release 6 last Tuesday and most attention was devoted to improvements in the area of virtualization and the significantly improved scalability.

So if you need more RAM, more CPU or bigger file systems RHEL6 is what you need.

If some of your virtualized servers could benefit from increased IO and such RHEL6 promises big improvements.

You may also want to contact your sales rep to see if a similar seminar is being held near you.

Other major change is the training offer and the changes in certification.

Finally the change in lifecycle might be interesting, but then again if you want and are able to keep up with new development being able to run RHEL6 for the next 10 years might not be important to you.

Regards

Bram

changes in RHEL6 vs RHEL5
 
Hi,

Thank you for your help

This page is my main reference but I was looking for something a title
diferent, like a table with the comparative.

In the link that Paul suggested you can see, for example:

Ram RHEL5 - 1TB
Ram RHEL6 - 16 TB.

something like that.

After reading some articles I think the big effort RH has made with RHEL6 is
scalabilty.

Virtualization is good, but with RHEL 5.5 I can use kvm and I think is
enough for me (at this moment, of course)

Any other point to take in account?

Thanks again,

ESG

changes in RHEL6 vs RHEL5
 
Well, one thing I am eager to start testing is the improvements for IO on virtualized servers. In a webcast I attended a while ago Red Hat promised great improvements for DB2 on a virtual RHEL6 due to improvements with Direct I/O with SR-IOV.

Perhaps http://www.redhat.com/f/pdf/tburke_rhel6_full_webinar_loopback.pdf can be of use.

Regards

Bram
