Use system as a micro size servers for non critical services for internal IT

  • January 31, 2017
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
Small resources requirement. Easy to setup and support.
What do you dislike?
VMware tools doesn't work properly and it is hard to find the proper documentation sometime even with google as some linux users doing just short clues where you need to move for the solution, but you still have to do a lot of research if you are not familiar with linux basics.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Using several separate servers for separate services needed for different need of internal IT saving some resources that could be consumed more if it would be installed on separate windows servers.

Rock-solid reliability at a reasonable price (free!)

  • January 27, 2017
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
I like the fact that CentOS has the security and reliability of Red Hat Enterprise Linux, without the cost overhead. During my years of using CentOS, I have found it to be an excellent product for web hosting; most web servers online use a Linux distribution, and out of these, CentOS is the third most popular distribution (behind Ubuntu and Debian).
What do you dislike?
Some of the software package that are distributed with CentOS can be of a slightly older version than some other Linux distributions, which can sometimes cause compatibility problems. This is due to their focus on reliability, as the versions included have been tried-and-tested and confirmed working. However, if you so wish, you can add additional repositories to CentOS which you can use to upgrade these packages to the latest versions, so this issue isn't too much of a problem and is easily remedied if necessary.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
By using CentOS, we have replaced our entire Windows hosting infrastructure, and as such saved a significant amount in licensing costs.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
If you are looking for a reliable solution for hosting your website, or a general-use Linux distribution, CentOS is a very strong candidate.

No issues with AWS Centos AMI. Have used Centos AMI's on AWS since Version 5.x . Easy to configure, no issues with image copies and AMI clones. Always get what I expect

Nothing, they seem to keep the most stable version on Software, as an Example, Docker 1.10 on CentOS 7.2, very stable, uses overlay FS, and no surprises.

Creating Clusters for DCOS and Apache Mesos.

Extremely versatile operating system, I've deployed for many different purposes from simple web servers to complex sequencing systems. If you don't need the support then this is the distro to go for over it's Red Hat brother.
What do you dislike?
Basic distros have few packages built in to the OS, need to add many things yourself
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Web server amongst many others

The best option for cost reduction and enterprise linux...

  • December 15, 2016
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
CentOS is a package for package duplicate of the RedHat Enterprise Linux RPM based distribution.
What do you dislike?
This is a distribution not supported by a large organization which would then limit its ability to be used in the enterprise.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
CentOS provides the ability for us to use an enterprise class distribution without the high cost associated with it.

CentOS is a stable OS which is good for research!

  • December 07, 2016
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
I especially like CentOS's stable environment. It makes me easy to install and update software packages for research such as Matlab.
What do you dislike?
CentOS got a great jump between 6.0 and 7.0. Compatibility is an issue in this case.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
I am trying to solve scientific research problems, and most high performing computing languages/packages such as BLAS and C++ work only well on Linux.
