Whitepaper: A Simple Guide to Creating a Firewall and Squid Proxy Server

by RedhatJan 01, 2008

This paper will cover the configuration and setup of a firewall and squid proxy server. By no means is this meant to be a complete solution; it is a straight forward example of how to get started. The assumed network infrastructure looks something like Drawing. A server acting as both firewall and squid proxy server sits between the internal and external network. Clients are configured to use the IP address for the firewall server as the gateway and proxy server for accessing web pages.

Whitepaper: The Path to Multi-Level Security in Red Hat Enterprise Linux

by RedhatJan 01, 2008

Implementing Multi-Level Security is an expensive process, and mainstream operating systems do not include traditional MLS and Mandatory Access Control (MAC) capabilities. Most of the trusted operating systems that did provide these capabilities have failed and exited the market, leaving the need for a new solution. This paper is an introduction to Multi-Level Security, and examines the problems associated with past implementations. It provides a road map for MLS in Red Hat Enterprise Linux, and demonstrates how Security-Enhanced Linux, in conjunction with Red Hat Enterprise Linux, provides this new, more capable and more flexible solution.

Whitepaper: Memory SSA - A Unified Approach for Sparsely Representing Memory Operations

by RedhatJan 01, 2008

Static Single Assignment (SSA) provides a spare data-flow representation for scalars, but it?s not well suited for representing objects of cumulative types like structures and arrays, or other memory operations like pointer dereferences and global storage. Several approaches have been proposed to incorporate memory operations into SSA [2, 4, 8, 11, 12]. In general, these approaches build a separate web structure of use-def or def-use chains that are factored very similarly to the basic SSA form. This paper presents a unified approach for representing both scalars and arbitrary memory expressions in an SSA form.

Whitepaper: JEMS: The Open Source Platform for SOA

by RedhatJan 01, 2008

This paper published by Red Hat addresses the open source platform for SOA with the JBoss Enterprise Middleware Suite (JEMS). The JBoss Professional Open Source model presents JEMS as an affordable, developer-friendly, and cohesive SOA foundation. Red Hat JEMS makes it practical and easy to launch SOA projects to prove the value to the business without large financial commitments to procure expensive closed source licensed products. The open source platform for SOA delivers lower costs and increased flexibility thanks to the open source model on which it is based.

Whitepaper: Linux Virtual Server Administration

by RedhatJan 01, 2008

This paper published by Red Hat gives information about installing, configuring and managing Red Hat Virtual Linux Server (LVS) components. LVS provides load balancing through specialized routing techniques that dispatch traffic to a pool of servers. This paper does not give information about installing, configuring and managing Red hat Cluster software. Information about that is in different paper. The audience of this paper should have advance working knowledge of Red Hat Enterprise Linux and understand the concepts of clusters, storage and server computing.

Whitepaper: Creating and Restoring a Selective Solaris System Image Using Red Hat Network Satellite

by RedhatJan 01, 2008

This paper will help to create a selective image of a client system using Red Hat Network (RHN) Satellite. This configuration requires an RHN Satellite Server and the client system to which the image will be applied. Hardware requirements for the Satellite can be found in the Satellite Installation Guide. The RHN Satellite can be a useful location to store and track changes to a selective Solaris client image, including configuration file maintenance, package, patch, and patch cluster information.

Whitepaper: Deploying Oracle Database 10g on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4

by RedhatJan 01, 2008

Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 provides the ideal platform for the deployment of Oracle Database 10g and 10g RAC-based solutions. The 2.6 Linux kernel in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 improves upon the already impressive scalability and performance offered by Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3. Support for seven hardware architectures enables customers to choose from a plethora of certified industry-standard hardware platforms, whether it be large SMP systems or a grid of low-cost, high-performance systems as the foundation for Oracle 10g RAC.

Whitepaper: An Overview of Red Hat Developer Tool Suite

by RedhatJan 01, 2008

This paper published by Red Hat gives information on Red Hat Developer Suite, a member of the Red Hat Applications product family. It discusses the goals of Red Hat Developer Suite, the Eclipse IDE on which Red Hat Developer Suite is based, as well as Red Hat’s value-added features and plug-ins and briefly outlines some of the work that is currently underway that will be available in the near future.

Whitepaper: Red Hat JEMS: The Open Source Platform for SOA

by RedhatJan 01, 2008

The term ""Service-Oriented Architecture"" has been described in various ways throughout the IT industry. Since 2001, however, widely acknowledged standards such as Java EE and web services have enabled a new level of interoperability and SOAs. While many vendors have announced SOA initiatives and platforms, most implementations are dependent upon expensive, closed source platforms. And while there are a range of open source projects focused on the ""Piece parts"" of SOA, nothing exists to ensure these parts interoperate within a cohesive whole. Red Hat directly addresses these issues with the JBoss Enterprise Middleware Suite, the open source platform for SOA.

Whitepaper: Getting Started With Cloud Computing With Red Hat

by RedhatMay 14, 2009

Change the economics of computing by paying only for the infrastructure software services and capacity that you actually use. Red Hat Enterprise Linux for cloud computing makes it easy to develop, deploy, and manage your new and existing applications in a virtual computing environment. You can increase or decrease capacity within minutes, removing the need to over-buy capacity to handle periodic spikes in demand.
