CentOS is no longer the reigning champ for managed webhosting

  • August 25, 2021
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
Ubuntu Server is free, isn't subject to the whims of a greedy parent corporation, and just works. Much better software selection than CentOS/RedHat as well. Tremendous community support and inexpensive corporate support if needed.
What do you dislike?
Ubuntu has jumped on the Snap bandwagon. I would prefer not running Snap on servers...
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
For web hosting, Ubuntu server is the most reliable platform for LAMP stack implementation with regular updates and solid 5-year support for LTS versions. You don't have to wait forever for updates to Apache, Nginx, PHP, Python, MariaDB or MySQL. Plenty of repositories to keep those critical packages current, even when Canonical lags, which isn't too often to be honest.

The key benefit is stability, both in terms of the OS and Canonical; the debacle with CentOS changing to a rolling distribution has left more than a few web hosting providers in a bit of a bind...
Recommendations to others considering the product:
CentOS Stream will get more frequent updates than plain old CentOS, but no more than a standard Ubuntu LTS install. Control panel software such as cPanel and Plesk don't recommend running on CentOS Stream at this time (both actually push AlmaLinux or CloudLinux). They both don't run 100% on CentOS 8 either, just CentOS 7. Plesk seems to be further along with supporting 20.04 whereas cPanel states it's experimental at this time. Chances are they will both focus more on Ubuntu Server than they have in the past; I've read both companies were absolutely livid with RedHat/IBMs decision to change CentOS and cut support for 8 to 2024 from 2029.

The best OS for Technical People

  • August 20, 2021
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
This OS gives open source environment for the developers and access to different tools and facilities.
The best thing about the OS is its free and supports different software for the developers.
As a software developer , Ubuntu gives the best environment and software support for development and coding.
With the help of Ubuntu Developers can develop different Open Source Project also.
The OS takes very less RAM memory compared to other OS , this is a big advantage for me having system that contains less RAM memory.
What do you dislike?
The Graphical User Interface is little poor compared to other non Linux OS.
Also This is not the best for non-tech people.
There is a little problem that the updates come more frequently.
The general people likes easy access and less command line interaction , In Ubuntu , One should understand at least few commands , which becomes headache for those who are non-techie.
Although newer version of Ubuntu is improving in GUI , but it still lacks compared to other non Linux OS.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
As a software developer , I work for different open source projects and also wok in Development and Coding field. I use inbuilt Apache Server for my server side work. I also do scripting by using Bash Script. Ubuntu has a great support for the development field and also for the Server side work . There are several benefits I cam across since I started using Ubuntu , Its performance , Its accessibility and the powerful Apache Server that helps me debugging and developing the project.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Ubuntu is the best OS for the open source development . If someone is from the tech background , then Ubuntu helps them a lot while developing and working for their project. If someone likes a better GUI then go for other OS . For students and learners , While using Ubuntu , You can learn several tech related things . For developers , This is one and only you wanted. The ease of developing and environment this OS provides , it will help user to work in their comfort zone.

What do you like best?
The best part about using Ubuntu is that it is free to download and is very flexible. It comes with pre-installed tools which make it easy to use. It supports latest graphics, which are appreciable. The app has a secure database as they have built it on Linux architecture. The user base of Ubuntu is very large and has excellent community support. Even with a low hardware set, it works perfectly and conveniently.
What do you dislike?
Some software is unavailable in the repository system, and sometimes it is difficult to install the software. Sometimes, the app crashes so the built could have been stronger.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Ubuntu is a fast, reliable, smooth, and lightweight operating system. It is very safe to work with and is customizable. The app is free to use and is of significant benefit since the software cost of my company is limited. It does not need any antivirus software since it is very secure.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Ubuntu is very safe to use and can be used by anyone who wants a fast operating system. It is a straightforward and easy-to-use app. Built on Linux architecture, the app has convenient tools to use and is free to use. I recommended you to use Ubuntu if you want a reliable, fast, and secure operating system even with a low hardware set.
