My experience with CentOS

  • October 12, 2020
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
It is great distribution to use for any developer or anyone dealing with large amount of data and compute intensive tasks. It is secure and open source, so there will be no need to worry about the cost and license.
What do you dislike?
It was great to use but every time we wanted to update the kernel we used to struggle with NVIDIA driver or issues such as Cannot find root device after latest kernel upgrade.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
I used to use it on my workstation which was part of a network file system. All systems were using CentOS as their operating system. Big data research problems. Handling large files and distributed computing. I was running intensive Molecular dynamic simulations using Gromacs using this distribution.

CentOs appliances

  • October 08, 2020
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
I like best that you can simply use CentOs to create smart software appliances.
In use with GUI it is a nice alternative to windows.
What do you dislike?
It is hard to learn and need high skill to configure.
Besides that you will need some programming skills if you use only the cli variant.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Creating an environment where users can upload content from outside the organization.
We use it mainly for our nutanix nodes, these are installed with Centos and on top off that it hosts a hypervisor
Recommendations to others considering the product:
try to find use cases what you really need and see if it fits on centos. IT is a light weight OS so you keep resources for the application

Perfect OS with Security standards

  • September 30, 2020
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
CentOS is the secure desktop operating system, which gives more applications compared with windows.
What do you dislike?
It's not user friendly as compared with windows.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
We are into CentOS desktop support based on the customer needs. The additional benefit with CentOS is we can connect the operating system with SSH module and fix the issue.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
CentOS is integrated with selinux and acl is additional options for advanced system administrator

Great community OS with almost all features of RHEL

  • September 29, 2020
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
It's almost the same as RHEL, provides most of the enterprise features. It still adopts older standards, while implementing the new ones, so someone who started earlier (like the '80) still can use his/her knowledge to operate this system. Obviously, it's better to learn the new standards, but backwards compatibility is an important factor, it does help to veteran users.
You can get training from RedHat (for RHEL), but you can use the knowledge on CentOS. RedHat trainings and certifications are highly valued, it's almost like an university degree (probably worth even more).
What do you dislike?
Obviously, you don't have enterprise support (being a Community Enterprise OS), so you need the according knowledge for maintaining, or deploying this OS. People used to like yum as a package manager, my personal opinion is that apt is much better, has its flaws, but in general I tend to like it way more.
I tend to like the booting software of Debian systems more, anaconda and so are not that sophisticated as plymouth. These are little things, but in case of a broken boot, it does make your life hard when you need to fix it.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Having some old packages (old version of software) is usually comes up, solvable by adding additional yum repositories, or compiling newer versions of the packages.
Benefits are that is very similar to RHEL, so it has enterprise features (like connect to a Satellite), built in Ansible support, stable (but old) packages. Widely known in the industry, it's not hard to find people with this knowledge (but hard to find people with enough knowledge)
Recommendations to others considering the product:
You will have to have the expertise to deploy and operate this OS. If you don't have it, use RHEL with support instead.

Gateway for enterprise linux

  • September 25, 2020
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
Fastly it's free! That means they can download and use it for free without any limitations. For developers, that means they can access the code of the operating system at any time. CentOS gets things right in this department with excellent stability and security. Due to the focus being on running basic software variants, this OS has good speed even when compared with other Linux systems. As it is very close to RHEL, one can get the full flavor of RHEL, an enterprise Linux OS solution.
What do you dislike?
Getting support is not as easy as the ubuntu.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Linux CentOS does a reasonably good job when it comes to essential apps. There are some obvious choices, such as Mozilla Firefox as the default web browser, LibreOffice for managing your office needs, and Rhythmbox as the default audio player.
The useful utilities include a clock, calculator, contact, as well as the primary text editor gEdit. Some of the other exciting choices are photo manager software called Shotwell, YouTube browser, and Virtualisation app.
CentOS even includes a DVD burner, and plenty of tools focused on communication. The default email app is Evolution, and the chosen chat client is Empathy. You can also use Ekiga Softphone as the VOIP client, and a webcam viewer software named Cheese.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The best distribution system

  • August 13, 2020
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
Its a very robust and pretty popular amonst system administrators, devops engineers because of its stable nature and reduction in cost is another benefit.
What do you dislike?
There is nothing that I dislike about it.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
It's a pretty stable system and since release cycles are longre, applications do not need to be updated often.
