Great for hosting business use

What do you like best?
It is backed up by a professional ream at RedHat and it has a high lifespan.
What do you dislike?
I dislike the fact that it is not possible to upgrade between major versions.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
We used to have RHEL for our infrastructure. By using CentOS we managed to keep the same quality and cut down our maintenance costs.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
It is based on RHEL, a well-known commercial OS. It has the advantages of finding very easily answers on issues on community forums. We should point out that it is not easy to upgrade to a newer major version, however it's life cycle is very satisfactory. It is worth giving it a try!

Just Makes Cents!

What do you like best?
I love the community-driven, open-source aspect of CentOS. Being fairly new to Linux, I was able to find answers to all of my questions by utilizing community efforts and ultimately was able to create a file/email server from ground-up off of a bare-bones installation. CentOS is a highly-stable, enterprise-ready solution for anyone seeking an open-source framework for their server needs.
What do you dislike?
Being accustomed to Windows, CentOS poses its own set of challenges when making the jump to Linux. My dislikes all stem from nothing more than lack of experience and working knowledge at this point - again all my questions have been answered thus-far by seeking assistance online through forums and technology articles. CentOS has proven to be a great platform capable of everything I have looked into.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Using CentOS I am currently hosting a file and email server, web-login portal, calendar and interactive online documents (word processing, spreadsheets, etc.) ~ The cost benefits alone are astronomical, as everything I have used is free and open-source.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Make sure to utilize the outstanding community knowledge-base when seeking answers!

Free Clone of RHEL

  • October 01, 2012
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
CentOS is literally a free version of RHEL. The community takes RHEL and strips it, and then releases it.
What do you dislike?
It is always a month or two behind major RHEL releases, and not all functionality can be clone (such as the virtualization)
Recommendations to others considering the product:
CentOS is right for you if your wallet is closed and you need a server up and running ASAP. It has the stability and features of RHEL and the community support behind it.
