According to the company, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 not only lays the foundation for the open hybrid cloud and serves enterprise workloads across converged infrastructures, but it also pushes the operating system beyond today's position as a commodity platform.

The addition of cross-realm trust with active directory is a pragmatic move, especially given the widespread use of active directory as a primary identity store," Cormier concludes.
