Fedora 14: Virtualization, Security, Cloud Computing

Red Hat has numerous cloud initiatives, but Fedora is its own separate project and doesn’t always align with Red Hat’s corporate cloud initiatives. However, the brand new Fedora 14 is definitely cloud-ready. Sean Michael Kerner reports.


The Red Hat sponsored Fedora Linux distribution has unveiled its second release of 2010. Fedora 14, codenamed “Laughlin,” introduces new security, virtualization and developer features as well as the first Fedora release for the Amazon EC2 cloud in years.

Fedora release comes as Red Hat is gearing up for the release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 and the company continues to push forward on cloud foundation technologies.

“Due to technical reasons, this is the first release since Fedora 8 that has been able to run on Amazon’s infrastructure,” Jared Smith, Fedora Project Leader told InternetNews.com. “It’s also an example of where a group of Fedora community members got together and formed a Special Interest Group (SIG) within Fedora and they started working on this as a goal. It was very much an organic community that grew out of Fedora.”
