This paper will highlight the new features within Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.4 that improve system performance, simplify application development, and transform virtualization technology. Since the previous update to Red Hat Enterprise Linux, Red Hat, the partners, and the community have made advances in I/O performance and hardware, including virtualization standards, that are supported in this release. These include Single Root Virtualization (SR-IOV) on both AMD and Intel architectures, as well as enhanced FcoE and iSCSI devices and protocols. Developers and production administrators rely on the tools within Red Hat Enterprise Linux to understand application behavior and system performance.
