Red Hat Satellite is an easy-to-use centralized system management product that helps keep Red Hat environments running efficiently, properly secured, and compliant with various standards.
Complete life-cycle management in one console.
Provision on bare metal, virtualized infrastructure, and public or private clouds—all from 1 centralized console and with 1 simple process.
Use a systematic process to apply content, including patches, to deployed systems in all stages, from development to production. The result is better consistency and availability of systems, letting IT more quickly respond to business needs and vulnerabilities.
Configure your Red Hat systems in a more agile and efficient way. Analyze and automatically remediate configuration drift and control, and enforce the desired host end state, all from 1 convenient console.
Easily report and map your Red Hat-purchased products to registered systems for end-to-end subscription consumption visibility.
What Red Hat Satellite can do?
Manage hundreds or thousands of Red Hat systems as easily as 1
Red Hat Satellite can manage not only the life cycle of Red Hat Enterprise Linux software and configuration content, but also the life cycle of:
- Red Hat Storage.
- Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization.
- Red Hat Directory Server.
- Red Hat Certificate System.
- OpenShift Enterprise by Red Hat.
- Any other software available as an RPM.
Compared to other enterprise solutions, it’s less complex and less costly to implement. And unlike homegrown solutions, it follows best practices and scales to manage thousands of Red Hat systems efficiently.
Red Hat Satellite reduces overall costs already in small environments
An IDC return-on-investment (ROI) study found the average payback period for the initial Red Hat Satellite investment to be less than 7 months. That’s because Red Hat Satellite more efficiently manages your Linux systems, lowering per-system deployment and management costs. It also helps control costs by:
- Letting you easily standardize machine configurations.
- Vastly improving system-to-administrator ratios by automating patch and configuration management, and provisioning.
- Reducing errors and inconsistencies.
- Allowing junior-level administrators to perform senior admin tasks, which are organized in an intuitive interface.
Improve security and maintain compliance
Red Hat Satellite lets your organization easily address security, bug-fix, and enhancement errata. For example, you can use it to identify and quickly respond to vulnerabilities like Shellshock, Heartbleed, and GHOST. Red Hat Satellite also gives you peace of mind by letting you use industry-standard scanning and remediation tools, such as OpenSCAP, to audit systems and remediate them if required.
Save time and free up resources
Red Hat Satellite provisioning and configuration capabilities let you roll out new systems in just minutes. With advanced automation capabilities, you can also add more systems without adding more administrators. By spending less time on these tasks, your admins can focus on higher-value activities and respond more quickly to business needs.
Red Hat Satellite can scale out to manage thousands of remote systems. It accomplishes this using Red Hat Satellite Capsule Server instances that are deployed at remote sites. Red Hat Satellite Capsule Server provides local management, while communicating back to Red Hat Satellite Server to provide a unified organizational view across multiple sites.
Simplify management to easily build out standard operating environments
Reduce the complexity of managing systems by using just 1 tool to manage the complete life cycle of a system. Easily and effectively manage all your systems—whether they’re deployed on physical, virtual, or cloud infrastructure—from 1 console.
Manage systems across a wide variety of platforms, and meet the demand for managing thousands of distributed systems across multiple datacenters.
Quickly and easily define standard operating environments (SOEs) that let you deploy systems in a fast and repeatable manner. This improves system consistency, which helps increase efficiency, reduce errors, and meet compliance standards.
Take advantage of innovation
More innovation is happening in open source communities related to management than ever. Red Hat takes the best capabilities from these projects and pulls them into Red Hat Satellite, letting your enterprise access the latest innovation in a fully supported and certified product.
Value of Standardizing
Standardizing on Red Hat infrastructure solutions allows you to reduce your operational costs,
shorten response time to changing business needs, and dedicate more time to innovate.
