In the past 24 hours, the Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) beta became available through Amazon's Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) service. While RHEL has been available in limited beta for a few weeks, this public beta announcement came on the heels of Novell's launch of SUSE Linux Enterprise Real Time 10, its latest enterprise OS offering.
The launch of SUSE Linux Enterprise Real Time 10 is arguably the bigger announcement. Novell's new SUSE is a real time operating system, allowing critical processes to take priority over processor tasks.
