Satellite as such changes its technical base from Spacewalk towards a combination of Foreman, Puppet, Katello and Candlepin. This means multiple changes to the abilities of the product - Solaris is no longer supported, for a start. I'd love to edit the article accordingly, however due to a likely conflict of interests (I work for the company) this should better be done by someone else, or at elast with the help of someone.
What I'd like to add/change: Introduction: In computing, Red Hat Satellite is a systems-management Product by the company Red Hat which allows system administrators to deploy & manage and Red Hat Enterprise Linux hosts. A Satellite server registers with Red Hat Subscription Management, mirrors all relevant software like security errata and bug fixes, and provides this together with locally added software and configuration to the attached servers. The managed hosts register against the local Satellite server and access the provided resources like software packages, patches, configuration, etc. while they also provide information about the current health state of the server to the Satellite
This allows organisations to manage which software and configuration is deployed on which host, as well as overviewing the actual state of the managed hosts.
History: Red Hat Satellite Server 3 was released in 2004, Red Hat Satellite Server 4 was released in 2005. Red Hat Satellite Server 5 was released in 2007.  Up to and including all versions of Satellite 5 were based on the same core technology Spacewalk which was released as an Open Source project in the meantime. However, with the release of Red Hat Satellite 6 in 2014 the technological base changed towards a combination of the Open Source projects Foreman (Web-Gui, Deployment), Puppet (Configuration Management), Katello (Content & Software Management) and others.
