Dynatrace Managed is now certified Red Hat Enterprise Linux software

Dynatrace Managed is certified for Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 8.x distributions.

We’re very excited about this week’s announcement from Red Hat (one of our technology alliance partners) that Dynatrace Managed is certified for Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 8.x distributions. For details, see the listing in the Red Hat Customer Portal. Dynatrace Managed thus joins OneAgent and OneAgent Operator in Red Hat certification.

RHEL 8.1, released in November 2019, brings a number of enhancements that are important for running Dynatrace Managed in a resilient and secure way, including:

  • Live kernel patching for critical and selected important CVEs
  • Administrator-supplied list of approved applications
  • In-place upgrade from RHEL 7 that greatly eases migration to the latest release

We’re happy to say that we’ve already tested and begun support for Dynatrace Managed version 1.186 with RHEL 8.0 and 8.1.

We have made migration to RHEL 8.0 and 8.1 as smooth as possible. After OS migration of your existing Dynatrace Managed deployment, run just one command to apply the new OS settings:
