Linux, but with (paid) support!

  • August 31, 2018
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best about the product?
RHEL is just the same open-source Linux you can get from everybody else, but it comes with support. That's very important for companies running mission critical systems that need someone to talk to whenever a problem arises, and they will do their best to find a solution as soon as possible.
RHEL also ensures that the software it bundles is tested and supported, so everything is usually working as you would expect. Their long term support usually lasts more than 10 years, so you really don't have to rush upgrading to the next version, and you'll have plenty of time to plan for the updates.
What do you dislike about the product?
Having used Debian, or Debian-based distributions like Ubuntu for the most time, I sometimes find RHEL not so confortable when compared to these other Linux distributions. Things like the package manager (dnf), location of configuration files, or internal system utilities are, in my opinion, more cumbersome than the Debian counterpart.
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
We use RHEL in some of our servers, where we host our customers' applications. We need a stable, supported environment, where fault-tolerance and high-availability are a must.
Between all the big commercial Linux vendors (SLES, Oracle, etc) we chose RedHat because it was, for us, the most popular one and also it was offered by one of our clould providers.
We don't use RHEL in our workstations, though.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Since 2016, there exists a "no-cost" licensed RHEL version. It comes with no support, of course, and you can't use it for commercial purposes, but at least it is a way for you to evaluate the product and decide if it fits your needs before paying for it. If paid support is not that important for you, be aware that some open-source, free of charge, derivative distributions, also exist.

Una de las mejores distribuciones de Linux para empresas

  • August 10, 2018
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best about the product?
Redhat, es una de las mejores soluciones operativas para empresas más robustas disponibles en la actualidad en el mercado. Junto con la capacidad de mejorar la seguridad del sistema operativo a la configuración recomendada por los programas en la actualidad. La configuración de seguridad recomendada de CIS, es lo que fortalece aún más su postura de seguridad y privacidad.
What do you dislike about the product?
Linux tienes muchísimas opciones y configuraciones, en el cuál si se tiene muy poca experiencia es de demasiada dificultad. Al hacerlo bien puede ser de prueba y error si se esta aprendiendo y la comunidad, no aporta consejos como la de Windows, eso significa que hay muchos recursos disponibles, así como soporte de diferentes proveedores. Para mejorar lo anteriormente dicho, es recomendable suscribirse a un canal de soporte.
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
Se puede configurar importantes plantillas CIS y se puede configurar la seguridad de linux si el software lo permite.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Mucha seguridad y configuraciones disponibles en este sistema operativo fácil de utilizar.

Better than the Rest - Linux Edition

  • August 05, 2018
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best about the product?
RHEL's interface makes it easy to navigate. It almost feels as if the developers of this Linux platform kept user experience in mind. Many of its built-in programs are easily navigable. Perhaps this comes more naturally to a developer whose first Linux system is not RHEL, but it does maintain all the functionalities of a Linux environment for a developer looking to code in practically any language (C++, Python, Java, etc). It is a stable Linux platform with security and speed.
What do you dislike about the product?
Price is a disadvantage of RHEL. It is not like other Linux distributions that are similar to RHEL and free. If you do not need RHEL and are not working on projects that require its robust attributes, then consider other Linux systems. In addition, getting certain packages on a RHEL system can be frustrating, especially if you lack the initial experience with Linux environments.
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
WIth RHEL, we are creating tools that will help management compile data on how well their developers are doing. Developers work in a Linux environment using RHEL. The system provides the security that the developers require to do their end of the work.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Do not start with RHEL if you are inexperienced with Linux. If your company does not need RHEL, do not invest in it. However, if you are looking for security and sturdiness, then RHEL is one of the best Linux distributions to exist.

Redhat OS as a base for your enterprise applicstions

  • July 26, 2018
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best about the product?
The best part of any tools from redhat is the extensive online documentation available of the products.
Redhat OS in particular is easy to use and manage. All our products are running seamlessly on top of redhat OS.

Since we are premier customer of redhat we get dedicated TAM providing 24*7 support.
What do you dislike about the product?
The kernel management for this OS can be tricky as there are many options to play with.
As with any linux OS, any changes should be properly checked before applying as you may loose data.
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
Redhat is the base OS for all our products. All our testing, UAT and PROD is using RHEL based servers both in virtual and physical env.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Before using it in cloud based templates, make sure to get kernel recommendations from redhat first.
Any changes later will be tedious.
Also do use it for clustered based applications along with cluster specific solutions from redhat like gluster FS and HAproxy tools.
