takes a look
at the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.2 beta release.
"This beta is being made available across the entire RHEL family. So you can try both the vanilla RHEL 5.2 and the Advanced Platform version on the AMD and Intel 64, Itanium, S/390, System p, and System z platforms. The beta for the RHEL 5 Desktop for x86 and AMD64/Intel is also being made available.
The major upgrades are going to be in virtualization. RHEL is upgrading its core virtualization hypervisor, Xen, to Xen 3.1.2. It also features improvements in its NUMA (Non-Uniform Memory Access) interface as well as support for up to 64 processors per system with up to 512GB of memory per server.
