Security on servers with red hat

Reviewed On
Validated Review
Verified Current User
What do you like best?

Redhat is the best operating system in terms of server security, with a solid track record, being an RPM operating system, it contains a number of packages and repositories adapted to end users, as well as an enterprise version that adapts to current IT requirements. allowing to configure more secure servers and adapting to the environments of virtualization platforms.

What do you dislike?

what I dislike about redhat is that despite being a free Linux distribution, support and some packages have high costs. Another problem is Some Bios do not support booting with RAID cards and you have to install the boot root outside of RAID.

Recommendations to others considering the product

My recommendation is to document with the amount of manuals that exist of redhat, which are very useful at the time of taking the first steps with this distribution of linux.

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

Redhat helped me in VCenter VMware, many clients ask me to supply virtual machines with Redhat due to the security levels for servers of this operating system.

red hat as a secure engine for databases

Reviewed On
Validated Review
What do you like best?

red hat was the first distribution to use the rpm engine to synthesize packages in a more efficient way, providing support unlike other operating systems, the red hat community is one of the active maas, being this mainly used for base engines of data for security and user-level support provided by this community, it should be noted that the rpm package analysis is for its support in libraries or repository libraries.

What do you dislike?

their script is different from other operating systems such as for installing packages, rest libraries everything is fine.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Within the considerations in the network task viewer hat is the most stable, its installation of rpm packages is one of the best for me since the installation and update of its repositories is automatically, once learned their sentences are makes its configuration very easy in server environments and data centers.

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

in datacenter environments it is widely used for its security layer at the firewall level and good management of database engines and the support provided by it.

RedHat Enterprise for Small Business

Reviewed On
Validated Review
What do you like best?

What I like is the flexibility and the robustness of the system, you can use it for different scenarios or applications and you can customize it to your needs even after the installation. I like that RedHat is a company with good prestige in the area and they offer a solid and secure Operating System.

What do you dislike?

The way the licensing is managed. I guess they can have a better way to manage that because sometimes is very difficult administer servers without the license to do updates or install new packages. I don't like that RedHat is focusing more in other areas and I think they are behind in the new features o the OS.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I can recommend to use CENTOS distribution if you don't need the RHEL support, it is the same distribution but without pay for the extra support.

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

We use RHEL for file server, print servers, mail server, web server, and almost anything for a small business necessities. We use Linux for a vast range of applications, from file servers to virtualization, but since CENTOS offers the same distribution as RedHat, we are moving some applications to CENTOS.

What do you like best?

i like the command line is by far better than the msdos from windows , also they have a nice graphic interface with all the stuff you need , you have more control of your files and it gives you more options to customize than other linux distros , also the hardware requirements are lower than microsoft windows servers and the yum feature to download software works really great , also another think i really like is that you can diagnose any software issues with just a one single command like , if you know you way around linux you can get a lot from this operating system

What do you dislike?

well i think i dislike we need to pay for it , it is supposed to be GNU like the rest of the linux distros , for example fedora and centos are similar products that are for free , other think i dont like and is related are the subscription if you stop paying you are not able to download anything .

Recommendations to others considering the product

is more secure and uses less resources , also is really reliable in all aspects

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

server related problems that we can have with regular windows servers , also by using the command line interface and scripting we can schedule daily backups and even routines using a cronjob , , also we had less issues with Red hat virtual machines than the ones we had with windows .

What do you like best?

Stability and most applications designed for Linux support this distribution. Security is also of utmost importance. We can rely on redhat fixing all security related issues reported by our vulnerability assessment.

Redhat supports a wide array of hardware. We can always find drivers that support redhat.

What do you dislike?

Often lags behind competitors in terms of release of new features. Though stability and security is forefront.

Docker and containerization is becoming popular so Redhat should look into getting this into this area.

I think pricing is always going to be a dislike factor as Redhat is expected to compete with many free distributions. That being said, we value the effort they are required to put in to provide stable and continual advancement to the Redhat community.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Redhat is stable and secure platform. You can rely on them to release security fixes timely which is critical for a secure enterprise environment.

Definately hire folks who have the RHCE certification as they are put through a a tough hands on exam unlike many vendors that test inviduals based on paper knowledge. You are guaranteed to get an individual of high caliber and ability.

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

We can always trust Redhat to deliver a secure and stable platform. We can always hire people with Redhat knowledge as well as find administrators with Redhat certifications and provide our employees with training.

Redhat is supported by most enterprise management tools such as puppet and ansible.

Exceptional Performance; Nearly Zero Downtime

What do you like best?

What could be said about RHEL that hasn't already been said? Fanastic Linux distro with top-tier support and an incredible user community. This is one of the top used Distros in the world and while it is paid for, it is well worth the enterprise support received.

What do you dislike?

Really nothing bad can be said about RHEL. If you are familiar with Linux and need the enterprise support and patching then this is the way to go. Perhaps, not so much a dislike, but worth nothing that companies that implement RHEL may require RHEL specific certifications before allowing you to touch the hardware, even if you are familiar with other distros.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you need the top-tier support that comes with RHEL then there is no reason not to consider switching. While other Distros may offer the same functionality, you will always have support when needed and patching when required.

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

Data processing, patching, automation, development and much more. Everything is streamlined and efficient.
