Red Hat Training recognizes its top North America instructors

by Ralph Rodriguez (Red Hat)

During Labor Day Week, Red Hat Training North America held its annual Instructor and Partner Conference in Las Vegas, Nevada. As is our tradition, on the final evening, we held our awards banquet, recognizing the instructors that have made the biggest impact over the course of the last year.

It is with pleasure that I reveal the instructor awards given that night:

Special Award for Training Advocacy
Rhett Williams

Rhett teaches in Southern California, a significant growth region for Red Hat Training. That growth is a result, in part, of his advocacy of Red Hat Training among his students. Without being a “salesman”, he talks to students about Red Hat’s training programs, training tracks, and other courses that will help them, resulting in an extremely satisfied, customer base.

GUEST POST: Software and configuration management made easy with RPM

by Christian Stankowic

If you’re maintaining multiple Red Hat Enterprise Linux systems (or equivalent offsets like CentOS or Scientific Linux) your administration work with the particular hosts will gain in a routine. Because even the best administrator might forget something it would be advantageously to have a central software and configuration management solution. Chef and Puppet are two very mighty and popular mangement tools for this application. Depending on your system landscape and needs these tools might also be oversized though – Red Hat Package Manager (RPM) can emerge as a functional alternative in this case.

It is often forgotten that RPM can be used for sharing own software and configurations as well. If you’re not managing huge system landscapes with uncontrolled growth of software and want to have a easy-to-use solution, you might want to have a look at RPM.

I’m myself using RPM to maintain my whole Red Hat Enterprise Linux system landscape – this article will show you how easy RPM can be used to simplify system management.
