Security on servers with red hat

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 is still the "big boy" in Linux for enterprise.

What do you like best?

A very stable and wide supported Linux distro, not only by Red Hat itself, I mean, there is a big list of companies that main business is support RHEL and is the main Linux for some enterprise software solutions like SAP.

What do you dislike?

For the initial setup inside a company (Red Hat satellite, accounts, network services, etc) can be complicated if your staff don't have enough experience, or expensive if your consultants don't have the right technical skill.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Check the background and experience of your consultants, and for internal staff try to select people with enough experience and pay them well.

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

Is the main OS for all the infrastructure (cloud and virtualized) for his stability, the benefits are mostly related to fiability and security (after hardening).

What Operating System solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

A secure and well-supported operating system

What do you like best?

RedHat is for me the best enterprise solution Linux Based actually on the market. It's fast, secure and with an excellent live support. It was one of the first Linux distribution to use a new way to compress packages

called rpm.

It is stable, have a nice GUI and is very fast.

What do you dislike?

This Linux distribution is very expensive and I would not recommend it to small businesses company with limited budgets. It's not very user-friendly for first time Linux user. Compatibility with others Operanting System could be better.

Recommendations to others considering the product

As i said before, this Linux distribution is expensive and I would recommend it only if you need RHEL support, but for small company with limited budgets i wouldn't recommend it.

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

I use RHEL for every server-side necessity, for virtualization, linux shell scripting, and so on. We also use scripting for schedule our daily backup and some auto-startup activity. The Database activity is also well organized with RHEL.

red hat as a secure engine for databases

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

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.

awesome operating system

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 .
