It's the same stuff you were using before, but "Enterprized". Red Hat give you the same "bits", rather than providing a cut-down free version. The icing on the cake is the extensive quality engineering, testing and security auditing that we perform on all Red Hat Enterprise products. We fully test and certify over 20 different operating system and JVM combinations, and 13 databases. All of these certifications last for the full lifecycle of the product release. These facts should keep your ops team happy!
