"Distribución muy sólida"

What do you like best?

Tenemos varios servidores web que ejecutan varios servicios para nuestra organización. Fácil de poner y usar, pero aún así obtener el beneficio de RHEL. He utilizado Centos AMI en AWS considerando la versión 5. Permite la instalación de su propio panel de CWP totalmente gratis y eso lo hace rápido y fácil de entender. paquete de paquetes de archivos.

What do you dislike?

Es un dispositivo operativo de servidor y no es adecuado para ser utilizado como una máquina operativa de computadora portátil. Nada de lo que es la falla del sistema operativo, mi revelación en Linux está limitada. Por mi parte, selecciono Fedora si tengo que usar la distribución de Linux de rpm. repositorio auténtico y, por lo tanto, quiero agregar un repositorio adicional, que en realidad no me gusta hacer porque 1/3 repositorios de partes no se mantienen además de los legítimos.

Recommendations to others considering the product

CentOS tiene un equilibrio notable que me permite mantener mi% 99 principalmente para servidores, no tanto para equipos de escritorio CentOS es una gran oportunidad basada en Linux. Puede ser positivo para que se prolongue durante años sin problemas y de manera cómoda. En los modernos, CentOs tiene mucho menos insectos y más sólidos.

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

Creando clientes y agencias. Hubo bastantes áreas con las que me he vuelto inusual, pero estoy ejecutando los problemas que utilizo como sistema operativo principal en todos los servidores de prueba y fabricación. Lo usamos como el sistema de trabajo principal de la granja completa de servidores, en casos máximos como virtualizado. OS en XEN En realidad lo he usado como dispositivo de trabajo en vmware, una vez que me pidieron las necesidades para la introducción de servidores de red, servidores proxy y servidor de correo, debido a su parecido con pink hat es un dispositivo de trabajo muy solicitado por el uso de programadores de red. .

"CentOS it is"

What do you like best?

CentOS is just like RedHat but free. It’s reliable and easy to install or implement. There are repositories available where you can download additional packages. Using CentOS will allow you take advantage of RedHat's packages and already established support community. It’s efficient for small and medium businesses. We have been running our web applications on CentOS Linux servers for some time.

What do you dislike?

Sometime it takes too long for them to respond and fix reported issues. Redhat and most of other operating systems have better technical support. Its slow release cycles also make it fall behind other Linux based Operating systems.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Definitely I would recommend it to someone. It’s an awesome and cheap solution for your web application hosting.

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

We have always used CentOS servers to run our web applications. It’s stable, high performance, free and easy to implement. This is what makes it a convenient server for the most of us.

What Operating System solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"CentOS: Linux operating system"

What do you like best?

CentOs is a stable and a high performance Linux operating system to host web applications on. It’s compatibility with other Redhat packages and systems is another good thing about it. CentOS is also reliable, robust and don’t need paid subscription like Redhat. CentOS is lightweight and easy to implement.

What do you dislike?

CentOs release cycles take long- just like time taken to resolve or fix issues. Another thing worth to mention is that if you are windows user and want to migrate your web application to CentOS linux server you will have to familiarize with Linux commands and command line.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would recommend it to someone. It’s just like RedHat but free. Take advantage of the already vibrant RedHat community.

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

We use CentOS linux servers to host web applications. It allows us to develop, test and run web applications in production. It’s easy and cheaper to implement.

"Reliable Server OS"

What do you like best?

Most important to us is that the OS is reliable (compiled from RedHat Enterprise Linux), is free, and yum is there for updating or adding new software.

What do you dislike?

On rare occasion there is software we want that is not available through a yum repository.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you need technical support then RedHat Enterprise Linux may be your best choice. Otherwise, I highly recommend CentOS. You can always try it and then switch to RHEL if you need the support.

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

We use a particular database manager that is restricted to a few version of the underling OS. Our clients run a separate server with our ERP software which we remotely manage for them. Initially, we ran Windows server, but found that Linux was more reliable and required less hardware to do the job. In 2001 we began switching server over to RedHat Enterprise Linux. We had a support agreement with RedHat for 3 years and used it one time. We ran without a support agreement a couple of years and then adopted CentOS and never had any regrets.

"Operating system for servers"

What do you like best?

What I like about centos is its performance as an operating system for servers, in addition to the stability and features of this robust Linux distribution of easy configuration for web servers, it has a library repertoire and it has the security of the source packages released from red hat.

What do you dislike?

What I do not like about centos is that in some installations it has caused problems with the network interfaces which I have to do cumbersome procedures for their configuration.

Recommendations to others considering the product

my recommendation for other users is if they are going to install versions of mysql see which are compatible with the different versions of centos, so they do not have problems when importing a database.

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

I have used it as an operating system in vmware, when I am asked for requirements for the creation of web servers, proxies and mail server, due to its resemblance to red hat is an operating system very requested by web programmers.

"The balance between stability and performance"

What do you like best?

It's very reliable to run code, I use to run my research cases during various days and the performance it's okay and the stability it's perfect. Before with Ubuntu in some cases I had some stability problems, solved by CentOs and their updated kernels.

What do you dislike?

mainly its everything okay, but I'm used to use Ubuntu as desktop environment and when I want to run cases in Centos I have to recompile. I'm realize that is not a fault of centos, but it's the only "but" that I can find.

Recommendations to others considering the product

To run parallel cases with security of no errors, it's the best option. Also for servers is very stable.

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

Allows me to run cases during long periods with totally stability.

"Can't affort a Licensed RED HAT for your testing? CENTOS is for you! "

What do you like best?

Very easy to use. When you are testing some internal scripts it's easier to setup as test-box and you can easily migrate to other platforms as needed. I did not have Linux background when I started using CentOS. It definitely gave me more confidence working with production environment and I could also practice my commands on my test lab.

Overall this is very stable Operating system and I must recommend any IT Professional who wants to get stronger in Linux world without spending too much out of your pocket. Once you have more experience you can easily switch to production licensed verisons of Red HAT.

What do you dislike?

There is not much particular that I would mention here. Product is great. I wish it would have some internal screen share or communicator capability.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you would like to have an enterprise level experience of Unix system, without spending a penny, CENTOS is the best option you could have. This will give you full confidence when you are planning to move on production infrastructure like Red HAT.

For those, who are actually preparing for RHCSA/RHCSE type classes to get certified, this is the best platform you could use and get certified. This is easily compatible on VMWare or virtual box and you can have your own server running. You can practice all the Labs, build your own scripts, install your own applications.

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

To build VM to run some internal scripts

"Sistema operativo principal para sistemas vitales."

What do you like best?

- Es muy fuerte - Muchos repositorios y paquetes para cualquier programa de software. El supervisor de paquete tiene el máximo del software que desea ejecutar el dispositivo e incluir depósitos adicionales es sencillo. Centos es de primera clase excepcional y al igual que con la mayoría de los sistemas para cumplirlo. Llegó aquí en tres modelos principales. La seguridad es máxima.

What do you dislike?

Ciertos aditivos pueden no estar disponibles de manera adecuada. La GUI es minimalista y puede ser más alta para los clientes finales. Ahora no estoy tan familiarizado con el dispositivo RPM, proveniente de las distribuciones totalmente basadas en Debian en mi último proceso . La GUI es minimalista y puede ser más alta para los clientes finales. Puede ser un poco lenta para aprovechar las variaciones contemporáneas del programa de software, pero esto es más a menudo debido a la necesidad de mantener la seguridad y la integridad.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Hay muchos sistemas operativos basados ​​en Linux, sin embargo, Centos es el más estable y confiable de ellos. Defiendo a CentOS por su fácil instalación e implementación, para mí es el jefe de sistemas operativos de Linux, muchos fabricantes o paneles pueden certificar que está bien. Adecuado con el máximo software suelto que existe. Es muy estable y relajado. La confiabilidad nos ahorra tiempo. Hemos podido desplegar diferentes soluciones web utilizar como base este SO, tenemos tiendas en línea desarrolladas sobre PHP y Magento

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

Cuando construyo un entorno completamente nuevo para poder alojar ofertas de infraestructura, deseo aplicar un sistema operativo que sea sólido y algo que se admita por bastante tiempo parches de seguridad y actualizaciones. La documentación que se tiene en Internet para CentOS hace Suaviza a la mano a diferentes personas en mi organización. Usamos los servidores CentOS Linux para alojar varios de nuestros sitios web orientados al usuario. Con CentOS podemos usar la función máxima de RedHat Linux, pero sin gastar lo que sea, tiene todo el dispositivo que queremos y el reemplazo es rápido y normal Asegura el backend del máximo de los grupos de telecomunicaciones con los que he trabajado en mis 18 años de experiencia

"El mejor programa de todos y por diferencia"

What do you like best?

Lo que me gusta de CentOS es su rendimiento como sistema operativo para servidores, además de la estabilidad y características de esta robusta distribución Linux de fácil configuración para servidores Web, tiene un repertorio de biblioteca y tiene la seguridad de los paquetes de origen liberado de Red Hat.

What do you dislike?

Lo que no me gusta de CentOS es que en algunas instalaciones ha causado problemas con las interfaces de red que tengo que hacer procedimientos engorrosos para su configuración.

Recommendations to others considering the product

mi recomendación para otros usuarios es que si van a instalar versiones de MySQL ver que son compatibles con las diferentes versiones de CentOS, por lo que no tienen problemas al importar una base de datos.

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

Lo he utilizado como sistema operativo en VMware, cuando se me piden requisitos para la creación de servidores Web, proxies y servidor de correo, debido a su semejanza con Red Hat es un sistema operativo muy solicitado por los programadores web.

"Good operating system for business environments"

What do you like best?

CentOS it's a fork of the historical RedHat, the business unix environment by definition, in consequence CentOS it's stable and powerful like RedHat but with the community behind making it better and free.

The best of CentOS aside of the stability and performance, is the speed that the developers include new support for new hardware. Also it's very interesting the integrated firewall that it includes, that it's enough for servers not totally exposed to the net.

What do you dislike?

CentOS has a policy of not upgrade the kernel so often, and in consequence there are new features of the last branches of Linux kernel that aren't available in Centos

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's the best option to run in a server, whatever service your need to run, with Centos you will get it up and running stable and without problems.

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

In our company we use CentOS to run some services, like LDAP, Apache for web servers, PHP applications, Java applications, databases, and some CMS.

Also we use for the internal servers, to offer to the network services such DNS, DHCP, NTP, and for other tasks like backups and firewalls.

"Excelente Sistema Operativo para web"

What do you like best?

Me gusta mucho la estabilidad del sistema y es muy robusta para el desligue de aplicaciones web ya que se integra con aplicaciones para despliegue como Apache web server, mysql, nginx, mariaDB, lampp, entre otras, en cuanto seguridad de redes cuenta con un firewall integrado muy completo y configurable,

En mi experiencia comparando CentOS con otras OS basados en Kernel de Linux y orientados al despliegue de aplicaciones web puedo afirmar que es uno de los mejores en su categoría por la fiabilidad y disponibilidad en ambientes online 24/7.

What do you dislike?

A pasar de poderse instalar con entorno gráfico para los usuarios que no son avanzados se les dificulta mucho gestionar la plataforma.

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

Hemos podido desplegar diferentes soluciones web utilizado como base este OS, tenemos tiendas online desarrolladas sobre PHP y Magento.

Dentro de los beneficios hemos podido reducir costos ya que para poner en marcha este OS los requerimientos de hardware son muy inferiores a los de otro OS.

"Best OS for everyone whether it's casual web development or running Enteprise-grade services"

What do you like best?

First, CentOS' LTS versions are production worthy for a number of years. If you look at Fedora, Fedora releases a new OS every six months leaving older versions behind on security patches, updates, etc. With CentOS, you can deploy now and still have up-to-date security patches/updates as well as access to their repos after five years. CentOS is also very stable. I run almost all of my infrastructure off of CentOS and it's also my OS of choice for doing development work.

What do you dislike?

CentOS is perfect; I dislike nothing about it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Switch to CentOS - it's great!

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

When I build a new environment that will host infrastructure services, I wish to use an OS that is stable and something that will be supported for quite some time (security patches and updates). With CentOS, especially with the free price tag - it can't be beat.

"Good OS for servers"

What do you like best?

The best of CentOS is the performance as an enterprise Operating System for linux servers, also it's very stable and reliability. In overall, is the most robust OS based in Linux kernel.

It's a fork of Redhat, it means that you can use all packages created for redhat without problems.

What do you dislike?

In overall it's a very good system, but sometimes there are new hardware that it's not totally enabled in the kernel, any you needs to use the last versions of the available kernels.

Recommendations to others considering the product

SInce i'm using it, it solve my needs perfectly

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

It's allow me and our organization to develop, test and run our codes in a reliability way.

"A stable, performant and always updated platform"

What do you like best?

Centos is an Linux Operating System derived from the sources of Red Hat Linux, it is a community version of Red Hat without the branding and so it's completely free and open source.

It came in 3 main version: DVD ISO, Everything ISO and Minimal ISO., and you can choose between GNOME or KDE Desktop version. So you have the embarrassment of choice. It's easy to install, come with a nice set of preinstalled application.

What do you dislike?

The performance can be much better, the audio and video codec often have some problems and for those who are neophyte it could be a problem.

Recommendations to others considering the product

With CentOS you have everything you need to work peacefully, including regular updates, great community, and numerous online help and guides that can help you in which case you have a problem. It's also free and very easy to install as well as easy to use.

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

With CentOS we can use most feature of RedHat Linux but without spending anything, it have all the tool we need and the update are fast and regular. The Operating System is also very Stable.

"The best Linux operating system"

What do you like best?

I like this Linux operating system in my personal opinion is the best OS that exists in the distribution. Centos is super phenomenal and compatible with most systems to implement. It allows the installation of your own CWP panel for free and that makes it fastastico as well as its easy-to-understand package of files.

What do you dislike?

This operating system has no news to disgust me, I have many years using this operating system and I really never had problems with that, whenever I have any doubts, have enough material on their website and support Group to manage to solve Fast and effective way.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend CentOS for its easy installation and implementation, for me is the leader of Linux operating systems, many brands or panels can certify as it is compatible with most free software that exist.

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

With CentOS I have solved many problems of sales and I have always installed on my servers this operating system and from there part my company where I have installed CentOS Web panel is one of its wonderful programs of installation free.

"CentOS meets the needs for basic Enterprise Linux"

What do you like best?

CentOS is my OS of choice when working with traditional enterprise, web, and other application development. It is simple to build a pipeline of tools that are easily replicated to many systems in a medium sized enterprise technology department. I use it for my sandboxes and development efforts and even production instances unless some sort of indemnification is required. Working in the PHP, web, and Java space, CentOS handles all of my needs.

What do you dislike?

Dealing with the onslaught of containerization technologies, we have found CentOS lacking in straightforward support of Docker, Kubernetes, and other container solutions. The networking stack is difficult to deal with in containers and the support for CentOS variants usually requires a bit of fiddling with 3rd party yum repos that leave administrators wondering if there are any security risks associated with doing so.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are using CentOS to host traditional enterprise applications, Java applications, Web applications, or web sites, this is the correct tool. Do not use for building out an infrastructure for containers.

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

We use CentOS to handle a variety of things such as: directory management, web servers, backend application servers, Java applications, PHP applications, content management systems, digital asset managers, proxy servers, infrastructure as code systems, source control servers, and countless other applications.

"Reliable linux distro for hosting"

What do you like best?

The consistency and compatibility of CentOS in the decade I have been using it for hosting cPanel servers is excellent and makes CentOS my first choice for LAMP stack setups.

What do you dislike?

I am bothered the amount of packages that are made with simple installation scripts for Ubuntu but require more configuration on CentOS setups, although this is a problem with the linux community and not CentOS itself, I think there could be more additions to the CentOS repositories to have these easy setup options available for some packages.

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

Maintaining a high uptime for hosting service customers on shared VPS setups. CentOS has excellent stability which lets me keep my %99.9 uptime promise to customers

"The best enterprise operative system"

What do you like best?

I want to recommend CentOs because it's an stable and high performance OS working with web applications

services, for example Apache2, mysql, postgressql, lampp. Also includes a complete firewall incorporated in the core of OS and its easy to configure.

Comparing CentOS with the other linux based OS, it's the most stable, and it gives me the better performance running our codes. It must to be said that I only use it to test the applications I do

What do you dislike?

It's a server operative system, and is not suitable for use as a desktop operative system.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Use CentOS it's the same as use RedHat, without paying anything but with the same support and comunity.

"Main OS for critical systems"

What do you like best?

This distribution, is maintained by the community, but has the stability and performance that RedHat give to us. Very usually there are new releases, including newest hardware support.

What do you dislike?

Like others OS server oriented, CentOS is not oriented to being a full desktop operating system, and the desktop applications available is not in the same that there are, for example, in ubuntu

Recommendations to others considering the product

The best alternative for use in servers, instead of Ubuntu, SUSE and others.

"Addictively easy to use"

What do you like best?

Installing and updating apps is super easy

What do you dislike?

I'm not a big fan of some of the new things in CentOS 7, but I'm getting used to them.

Recommendations to others considering the product

In my opinion, Linux is about 60% what you as an admin prefer and 40% about the flavor of Linux. In a broad sense, I haven't yet found one thing that one flavor of Linux will do, that another one can't. I've used Ubuntu, Debian, Arch, RedHat, AIX, HP-UX, and a few other *nix O/Ses, and I prefer CentOS over all of the rest. Yes, RedHat and CentOS are basically the same OS, I just have a need that requires me to pay for RedHat support/updates.

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

CentOS provides a predictable Linux platform that is easy to deploy. The documentation available on the internet for CentOS makes it easy to hand off to other people in my organization.

"Best to use when you can't buy RHEL and a temporary alternative"

What do you like best?

* Easy to install and use, but still get the benefit of RHEL.

* Lightweight and fast, you can see it when you use it

* Use the HW recommended and you can keep it running for long.

* More apps are now using TLS which is helpful when you need security

What do you dislike?

* If there are issue, the fix takes time , due to their release cycle. Otherwise i dont see a problem.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you dont have a way to buy RHEL, the centos is the best one to use. You have security like TLS now. Also you can use for virtualization and hyper visor as well. Just have enough memory and disk space that is required for your virtualization. Simple to install and easy to use. Very fast and you can feel it when you use it.

Also there are multiple open source software that you can use like Apache Web server, FTTD, SQL etc. You can just use yum install and install whatever is necessary. The software update, security update will not have any problem and the user should be able to get it.

In general, CentOs has very less bugs and stable. These days you can report the bug to mail id ( dont remember now). Only disadvantage is the bug fix may take time to get as the release patter is once in 10 to 18 months.

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

Well, not necessarily me but when budget is a problem, organizations use this in test/production environment. So for small/startups this would help.

"A great linux distro"

What do you like best?

I like that it is basically the free version of the long-famed Red Hat Enterprise Linux operating system. It is nearly a one-for-one feature match, without any of the cost.

What do you dislike?

CentOS is a LInux based operating system. So it is not for the faint of heart. It can be a beast to manage and you really need to know how to work at a command line. Any server worth its salt will not have a graphical user interface, rather just a command line for multiple reasons.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Use SELinux to secure the server environment if your CentOS computers are going to be public facing. Also, be sure to follow best practices when configuring your servers.

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

We use CentOS linux servers to host some of our customer-facing websites.

What do you like best?

We've been using using CentOS in our LAMP environment for over 10 years. Security is top-level. Patches for compatible modules and lightweight kernel makes it a very fast system for MySQL databases and Apache web server.

What do you dislike?

Since it's inception, the security of the OS often gets comprised by advanced hackers, but CentOS engineers does a great job in providing security updates.

"The best open-source distribution for production environments"

What do you like best?

With this distribution, you have the performance and stability that RedHat gives us, but with the "flavor" of opensource. The pace of updates is correct and sufficient.

Package management with YUM is as simple as APT and there are usually many repos

What do you dislike?

As a negative point, I would only say that it is not oriented to being a desktop OS, usually the less common desktop applications are not packaged by this environment

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's a very good option to change from other environments, like Ubuntu or Suse. Mainly for servers, not so much for desktops

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

We use it as the main operating system of the entire farm of servers, in most cases as a virtualized OS on XEN.

It gives us stability and safety for more than 6 years.

"The operative system of reference"

What do you like best?

The best of CentOS is that you have the best of two worlds; in one hand you have a fork of an enterprise operative system like RedHat and in the other hand you have an operative system maintained by a really active community.

What do you dislike?

As a negative point, I can say that CentOS updates their kernels no so often that I need, in conclusion sometimes is difficult to get some new hardware integrated in the kernel and you need to recompile it manunaly.

Recommendations to others considering the product

There are lots of operative systems based in linux, but Centos it's the most stable and reliable of them.

"A top notch operating system at a low price"

What do you like best?

It is almost an exact clone of Red Hat Linux. So you get everything you would if you paid the price for a Red Hat License. However, it is free.

What do you dislike?

They don't have x86 versions of the distribution another. Which is a trend will all operating systems, but still I have a few cases where the x64 version will not install on the hardware I have.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is too easy to try this product out. It is free. It is easy to download from the web. And it will install on almost anything. If you are thinking of switching to Linux this the platform to try out first.

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

"CentOS + Genomics' Research = Not So Fun"

What do you like best?

This Linux OS is basically a rock solid system for business enterprise type of capability. It is scalable, provides a robust set of features and after the environment is setup, there is not a tremendous amount of maintenance necessary.

What do you dislike?

The configuration of this OS is quite painful. Documentation is pretty sparse and you have to rely predominantly on what can be searched via forums. What normally would take me a afternoon to setup with a competitor's OS, would normally take me 2 days. Repo's are hard to work with too and it is a general chore to setup.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It really depends on what is trying to be achieved. They are plenty of platforms to consider. Ours was trying to develop a in house cloud based computing and liked Cent's expandability. We explored other options too like OpenStack and even Red Hat.

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

We utilized this OS to store large sources of genomics data and then use that information with machine learning. Maybe that is why it took some time to setup and work with because my lab was use to a different OS and our lab director decided for better stability and version control to work with Cent.

"CentOS is a great pick for a stable server for small-medium business"

What do you like best?

CentOS combines the best parts of an Enterprise-level Linux-based operating system (repackaging the Redhat Enterprise Linux Open-sourced pieces) and providing it free of charge without a subscription.

I've used CentOS since CentOS 5, and have been using it daily for servers running Samba and the like since 2012. I've since migrated those servers to CentOS 7, but the stability really can't be beat for the ease-of-use.

Support for products are also very solid for CentOS, due to the alignment and source-compatibility with RHEL. The same can be said for Debian, however I'm also a very big fan of the YUM package manager, which seems to help with dependency-resolution a fair bit better than apt.

EPEL is also a huge benefit to CentOS and RHEL. EPEL is software packages and extensions that provide updated/extended functionality over what is provided by default in CentOS. This allows being able to have newer versions of software installed without having to compile or download untrusted software from the Internet. EPEL forgoes some of the ultra-stable packaging CentOS is known for (sticking to older releases of software in order to not break compatibility), while gaining a very wide assortment of software that wouldn't otherwise be available.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes driver support is lacking, since the kernel versions being used tend to err to the 'oldstable' spectrum. Also, i'm not totally convinced that XFS/BTRFS is ready for the enterprise, as I've experienced issues with BTRFS snapshots in other Linux distributions (such as SLED). Sometimes as previously mentioned, packages are sometimes not updated as frequently as I'd like (this is done to preserve a cohesive environment and inter-operatibility between systems per release), but this is somewhat mitigated with EPEL packages.

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

I needed a stable system to provide Samba4 AD controllers for small business. I was using Fedora 14, when I realized support for various required systems weren't going to work (such as Quickbooks Enterprise), so I switched to CentOS, which has proven to be a very-wise choice. I virtualize several servers with XenServer, and have been very pleased at the ease-of-deployment and setup that is required with CentOS.

"CentOS - great old standby"

What do you like best?

CentOS works with RPM and YUM and a lot of legacy software. For command line use it is fast and easy. For graphical use (X-Windows, etc) there are better solutions on the market.

What do you dislike?

Updates can be slow in coming out. There was once a gap of over a year. It is much more regular now and seems to be likely to continue in foreseeable future.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is best to consider your requirements when choosing a Linux flavor. CentOS meets my needs for LAMP stack configurations but not so much for other needs.

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

Mainly hosting requirements. CentOS works well with a LAMP stack configuration but can be somewhat difficult to reconfigure to other needs. One thing though is it has always been possible to do, just not easy. Other solutions that CentOS has provided include SAMBA services and other terminal type applications.

"CentOS is an extremely solid OS that is easy to use"

What do you like best?

I like the fact that it's solid, as most linux variations are. I run a hosting company on the side and I have uptime of over 900 days.

What do you dislike?

It's rare, but sometimes you can't find something you need in an official repository and therefore need to add an extra repository, which I really don't like to do because third party repositories aren't maintained as well as the official ones.

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

I'm able to offer a bunch of different services on this free platform. It's easy to install things from repositories, and it's very solid.

"Excellent Linux Distribution for Servers"

What do you like best?

- It's based in Redhat Linux.

- There is a huge community behind this distribution.

- It's very stable

- A lot of repos and packages for any software.

What do you dislike?

- Redhat does not support it.

- It could be more faster and lighter.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you want a Linux distribution easy to use, install and configure, go for CentOS. It's very stable and secure.

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

We migrated all the windows services to CentOS. Now, we're more stable and more secure. Our uptime has increased a lot.

"Lo mejor en estabilidad "

What do you like best?

CentOS es un tenedor del sistema operativo RedHat, que busca estabilidad y rendimiento en un entorno totalmente abierto. Con el kernel Redhat, opta por la estabilidad y con la comunidad trabajando duro para mejorarlo, tiene el rendimiento y la compatibilidad con todo software de terceros.

Es un gran sistema para entornos de negocios donde la criticidad es máxima

What do you dislike?

El soporte a veces no es tan bueno como en el RedHat original, aunque un softare libre es correcto.

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

En nuestra empresa utilizamos CentOS para ejecutar los servicios de bases de datos, páginas web y algunos servicios de red. Básicamente es nuestro sistema operativo en casi todos los servidores.

What do you like best?

Easy and secure to deploy any kind of server. Many available packages and great performance. Low cost solution helps saving money to the company delivering an enterprise class operative system that can handle the load of the company applications.

What do you dislike?

New systemd way to handle system services. Basic installation lacks of important packages.

"Free Alternative to RHEL"

What do you like best?

Because CentOS is a fork of RHEL and uses many of the same repositories, setting up and configuring applications on CentOS is a breeze.

What do you dislike?

Changes from version 6 to 7 broke a number of my scripts. Petty and easy to workaround, I know, but still annoying.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Unless there is a specific feature you need from RHEL, CentOS is your go-to OS.

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

We needed a reliable open source alternative to RHEL that we could deploy quickly and use many of the same repos, scripts, and applications that we had built for RHEL. Because CentOS is free and open source, we can quickly and easily spin up new instances and tear down old servers without worrying about licensing allocation or licensing costs.

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

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.

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.

What business 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.

"I have used CentOS since 2009 and can highly recommend it."

What do you like best?

It has all the benefits and conveniences of a RedHat, minus the licensing limitations, even on purposefully unsupported Enterprise installations. RPM is a decent standard on Linux, and is well supported by the CentOS platform, down to RedHat-specific packages.

What do you dislike?

I don't have anything I specifically dislike about CentOS, though I would prefer it be distributed as a server system, and remove the overhead of any UI/X.

Recommendations to others considering the product

CentOS7 switched to SystemD from CentOS6's init/upstart; this is a bit of a learning curve.

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

CentOS is our central and most preferred distribution; with it we host all of our Linux platform. It is flexible, easily packaged as an image, and deployed full-featured and useable out of the box in most production environments.

"Perfect for enterprise"

What do you like best?

Most of our servers (which serves billions of requests per day) use CentOS, and it works quite stable. After a major release software packages are not usually being upgraded to latest upstream version (which might break something), but only focus on bug fixes and security fixes.

Fits very well in enterprises which has high demand of stability and security.

What do you dislike?

While focus on stability, new features of upstream packages are usually not being introduced after a major release. Also, some software such as ROS (http://ros.org/) only supports Ubuntu natively, on CentOS it requires some work to build from source. CentOS is also not suitable for personal desktop computers.

Recommendations to others considering the product

CentOS is THE choice for Enterprise environment with focus on security and stability.

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

"The best enterprise-oriented Linux OS"

What do you like best?

CentOS provides all the foundations for validating software in an enterprise oriented manner, ensuring that whatever you develop will also run on RHEL. This comes with the benefits of simplicity, stability, history, and a large base of experienced administrators.

What do you dislike?

CentOS 7 (and RHEL7) introduced a new service management layer that takes some adjusting to. CentOS is not designed for the single user or desktop market, so for those audiences (who still want Linux) CentOS may not be the best choice.

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

I am part of developing products for the enterprise server market. Our customers typically use RHEL, so leveraging CentOS allows us to develop software that will run on our customer's systems.

"CentOS , A complete open source all round server distribution"

What do you like best?

The best thing which i like most centos is for stability. when you are looking for an os which is best suitable for production , the first thing which comes to mind is stability. and the centos is all about that. It comes with a great stability. Its very problematic to adapt regular updates on the production environment and here comes the cent os which gets security updates in good time.

What do you dislike?

some times it is very problematic whiling booting at run level 3 or 5.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I really want to recommend this to all for all who are looking for a best all round server distribution.

It is really amazing . and it uses your system very effectively, gives you maximum throughput.

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

we have used it for several purposes like for databases especially for oracle sql, for web socket. we have used it for both.

it comes with minimal installation packages for production environment which helps in gaining system efficiency by removing background non usable packages.

What do you like best?

The reputation, stability, and community of this OS makes it our number one choice for servers. We use it for web servers, database servers, and load balancers. It's great for running our SaaS company.

What do you dislike?

Some of the software available in the repos is old, because CentOS takes a conservative approach. It requires adding repos for specialty software such as PHP.

"A solid Linux"

What do you like best?

CentOS is like that girl at school who was not pretty, it was quiet but did well academically without being a nerd. In the niche of those installer YUM as we have: Fedora, Oracle Linux and clear to Red Hat Enterprise Linux or RHEL. All are good choices but Centos is characterized by being used for turnkey solutions, have a good control on the packets, Use stable versions and have a huge community with forums full of solutions. Sometimes we doubt and fear we use RHEL spending a lot of money in our projects. I assure you that you can start with CentOS complete the learning curve and only if necessary delegate responsibility for your applications to a third party or finally look to Linux Support. Remember that while these on your own can find libraries, tools, repositories and good tutorials to complete your projects and get away with it. Of course you will need to have solid knowledge of linux and yum package manager for your CentOS run smoothly.

What do you dislike?

You may not know it, but if you can not handle your problems in CentOS you must be call to the dark side of RPM and request support (Not cheap by the way). Do not lie. You will need to know Linux. If you're just going to have to install a LAMP you will get the necessary. But if your project is aimed at installing and configuring a cloud, or virtualize, or put it as server or storage server or VoIP As you will notice you will not find all the solutions on the net or tutorials or magical manuals there. Compatibility with other libraries is not what is expected and if you've installed something manually starts to pray ... avoid break packages or libraries and their dependencies or need to make sure satisfy as other applications related to this., otherwise you will have a real headache. we know we need OPEL for some things but it does not come as default .... we also know that we like stable but not old in the repos. And remember the most importantly ... you're on your own, so be recursive.

Recommendations to others considering the product

You want to Save? Geeks are some home? Well CentOS is for you! It is easy, stable and flexible. For those who use Red Hat Enterprise Linux, Fedora Linux or Oracle they will feel comfortable because they use the same package manager, the installer and others. However libraries CentOS change and this makes the difference is devoid of some interesting libraries. This can be fixed by installing the OPEL sources, but you must be careful when installing as some packages may cause conflicts even reach a point where trying to meet the libraries end up breaking the entire system. Before putting your application into production or service or software solution updates all packages and check that there are no conflicts. remember to put your patches and drivers before upgrading the system. Notes when you go to make a clone of a virtual machine on vSphere and Hyper-V hardware changes and reconfigure especially network cards sometimes it gets annoying.

If you think you need some support can avail yourself of Fedora packages or Oracle Linux (RHEL Total Clone) if you need support touch you pargar in Red Hat or search Countless Internet forums where usually the answer or solution is already (almost) ready .

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

CentOS has a much longer support cycle than other distros

It's good to start projects

It's good to test and see if you need to make other arrangements or stay with the

It is good for as Hosting Solutions, Web services, VoIP, File Management and Data Networks

It is good and solid and fast for your web application projects

It is good for applications that require some extra tools in the field of network

It's good for Mail servers, DNS or even firewalls (Fail2ban we love you)

"My favourite OS for web servers!"

What do you like best?

This is my first choice for web servers. I love the speed it provides along with yum, which is a great package manager.

Security is a focus in CentOS and this makes it perfect for this role.

What do you dislike?

I can hardly say I dislike something about it, Maybe they should try to make it as popular as Ubuntu is, so that even "normal users" can understand that Ubuntu is not Linux and make their choice if they need to run a server.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Get accustomed to the differences if compared to Debian derived distributions.

"A Great Linux Distro"

What do you like best?

Centos is a fantastic Linux Distro. The UI is cleanly designed and the features within are powerful and highly customizable to your environment. You can scale up as needed and ensure the needs are met for your environments work flow. It also comes with plenty of free software already if desired. If you are unsure how to something, there is an excellent amount of documentation and a great user community to help you out. Definitely one of the top 5 Linux Distros of all time.

What do you dislike?

Nothing. If you need a great Linux Distro comparable to RedHat this is it. The only thing to consider and this is not necessarily a bad thing; you won't receive the enterprise level support that you get with RHEL. Remember, RHEL is fully enterprise level linux with all the support you need. CentOS has a great community but ultimately relies on the knowledge and capabilities of your own staff to maintain it. Not a deal breaker, but just something to consider.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Definitely recommended to anyone who wants to use Linux. If you are new to Linux, this is also a great Distro to learn on. You really can't go wrong.

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

Databases, web servers, productivity, software devopment.

Everything with CentOS is easy to do and works flawlessly. Users enjoy using this distribution and administrators enjoy maintaining it. A win-win for everyone.

"Best Server Operating System"

What do you like best?

CentOS is easy to configure and is my go to operating system for running server software. Once you figure how to use it, it's really easy. The packages are updated but not often to ensure better security. You can get the minimal version which is the stripped down version so you don't have to all these packages installed that you don't use.

What do you dislike?

The GUI isn't the best but I don't really care cause all I use is the command line. CentOS 5 would run on only 256MB RAM but now CentOS 7 requires 1GB RAM and is only x64.

What do you like best?

The stability and support from the CentOS community. Also, the plethora and quality of tools available in the original release. nmcli truly saved my day.

What do you dislike?

Takes some time to get used to the new operating system. A lot of common tools have different output formats which makes it a little uncomfortable to use. Also, takes time to get used to the alternate tools as compared to Ubuntu.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Great operating system. A little difficult at first to adapt to, coming from Ubuntu, but is way streamlined as compared to Ubuntu. Worth a try at the very least.

"Centos for servers"

What do you like best?

Centos has all the Linux features I need and all the enterprise features I needed from RHEL without the price. it runs Java, cloudfoundry, gemfire, spring, spring xd, open stack and all the tools and development tools as well as servers you need. Centos is fast, lean and a great general OS.

What do you dislike?

You either like RPMS and yum. It works if there's an RPM or it's in a YUM repo. If it isn't compiling stuff from scratch is often a pain and getting all the correct versions of build tools and libraries can be difficult. Sometimes I think Ubuntu is a little easier to work with and has some upgrades for containers not yet in centos.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Download it and try it.

"Great FREE enterprise Linux distribution for long term stability"

What do you like best?

CentOS is one of the top enterprise Linux distributions for good reason. It's derived from RHEL, has an amazing long and support lifespan, and great compatibility and support from both hardware and software providers, but also an amazing user community.

What do you dislike?

The development tool chain often lags behind, although this has been better in the most recent releases. The Kernel version is also not cutting edge, but this is a distro which favors stability above all. Finally many packages will needed to be sourced from third party repositories, but the good news is these are plentiful.

Recommendations to others considering the product

With CentOS's new integration/partnership with RedHat, it would appear that's it's long term viability is on a good foundation.

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

CentOS is a great option for almost all Linux based projects. In particular it is an ideal base for anything system with an expected deployment time of more than a few months given it's extremely long maintenance and support time frames. This makes it particularly ideal for bare metal installations where OS upgrades are undesirable.

"CentOS: The Rock-Solid Choice For Any Server Role In Any Enviornment"

What do you like best?

CentOS is incredibly mature, thanks to its affiliation with Red Hat, and as such, I believe it is the most stable operating system for workloads that do not require "bleeding edge" software and packages. CentOS has a very long development cycle with new major versions coming less than twice a decade, and this leads to very well-tested and proven code that ensures your workload will have minimal downtime and maximum compatibility.

What do you dislike?

As mentioned above, slow development cycles can sometimes mean missing out on brand-new features in the Linux kernel or in new releases of new software, but this is both a benefit as it is a determinant.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are considering CentOS, you are probably also considering Ubuntu, Debian, Fedora, etc. CentOS is the open source version of Red Hat Enterprise Linux, and this corporate presence in the development cycles should show you the level of security and stability that CentOS brings to the table. It's a Linux distribution that can handle any workload in any environment with maximum uptime and minimum surprises down the road.

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

CentOS (and indirectly through the Amazon Web Services Linux AMI, which is based on RHEL, which is based on CentOS) is the only operating system my company employs for both internal and customer projects. The level of maturity and the stability of CentOS are primary reasons we use this operating system over the other major players (Ubuntu and Debian).

Llevo años siendo sysadmin y debo reconocer que es una distribucion super estable, con casi las ventajas de redhat pero sin el coste de las licencias. Que siendo Redhat puede suponer bastante dinero. Pensado para entornos profesionales donde no haya tregua para los servidores.

What do you dislike?

Lo que menos me gusta es que no me gusta su gestor de paquetes, ni a veces la compatibilidad con hardware haciendo que a veces la simple instalacion de un servidor se convierta en una tarea tediosa , sin contar el servicio a montar.
