Very good OS for Enterprise

  • March 14, 2019
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best about the product?
The RedHat linux platform is one of the best OSes I've used for software development. The massive amount of libraries available for free and general compatibility of most everything means it makes a project much more efficient.
Another important feature is the continous updates by the RedHat organization to continue to provide a secure system preventing hackers and malicious entities from breaching the firewalls.
What do you dislike about the product?
The poor UI compared to other Linux OS es such as Ubuntu. The REDHAT platform is heavily text based as it is meant to be used on remote servers rather than desktops; however, sometimes it is necessary to use it as a GUI and this functionality can be added. In addition there can be more of a webbased interface built native into the RedHat rather than finding third party platform.
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
We deployed to host our core software program to process massive amounts of data in real time and give us a result allowing our business to make a core decision. The high level of reliability and the high security give us a huge benefit as our systems can cause big problems for residents of California if hacked by malicious entities and defame our organization resulting in future funding cuts or excessive oversights.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Best for those looking for highly secure system.

Fantastic Stable Enterprise Linux Distribution

  • March 14, 2019
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best about the product?
RHEL is a stable, long-term Supported, Enterprise-grade Linux distribution, with a fantastic company behind it and wide support from application vendors.
What do you dislike about the product?
As with CentOS, which follows RHEL, RHEL tends to lag behind in software updates, valuing stability over cutting-edge features.
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
Migration away from Windows and big-iron platforms, to more commodity hardware platforms. Enables easy cloud integration, is very highly manageable, and easy to maintain.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Consider supporting a company that is truly committed to Open Source software and makes their money off services, not licenses.

Features and performance of RedHat Linux

  • March 14, 2019
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best about the product?
Red Hat Enterprise Linux is a Linux distribution developed by Red Hat and targeted toward the commercial market. Red Hat Enterprise Linux is released in server versions for x86-64, Power ISA, ARM64, and IBM Z, and a desktop version for x86-64.RedHat Enterprise Linux is most powerful enough to handle almost all major tasks. The most attractive part of the Linux platform is nothing but its kernel and shell. We can easily achieve multitasking capability using Linux distros. The download size also very smaller compared to all other platforms. Network storage enhancements include Autofs, FS-Cache, and iSCSI support.
What do you dislike about the product?
The installation is a bit difficult compared to any platforms. The additional software installations are also difficult to some extent. When Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 configures a large number of devices, a large number of console messages occurs on the system console. This happens, for example, when there are a large number of logical unit numbers (LUNs), with multiple paths to each LUN. The flood of console messages, in addition to other work the kernel is doing, might cause the kernel watchdog to force a kernel panic because the kernel appears to be hung.
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
RedHat Linux is fast and it can prevent a malicious attack like the virus. Maintaining a Linux platform servers helps to increase performance and speed.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Try to incorporate other platform software installations.

The Gold Standard For Enterprise Linux Implementations

  • March 08, 2019
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best about the product?
This is the gold standard for Linux in the Enterprise. It comes with support (albeit paid) from RedHat and most Linux applications are packaged for RHEL.
What do you dislike about the product?
It's rather expensive. Each server license has a list price of $349. There are free solutions available that are almost identical to RHEL.
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
We use it in specific situations where support is required by customers or vendors, and for applications that only support RHEL rather than a free alternative.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Consider free solutions if you're on a budget or have a large number of servers. But, remember that by buying RHEL, you're supporting continued development of the RedHat-derived distros.

Redhat running Linux on z

  • February 14, 2019
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best about the product?
Redhat boots up faster than any other OS that is currently running on IBM z mainframe. Having quick bootup speeds helps a business with the ability to get backup and running within seconds.
What do you dislike about the product?
Installing Redhat on z is very challenging and the documentation isn't showing the correct steps. There are a lot more steps needed that aren't described in the manual, plus it would also be nice to have a similar GUI as SUSE does (YaST)
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
Containerization and speed of deployment
