Centos – Free Version of Red Hat Enterprise

less than 1 minute read

I am in the process of procuring a second machine to handle growth and some new features at Syndic8. One of the operating systems available from my hosting company is CentOS Enterprise Linux. I had not heard of this distribution before, so I spent some time checking it out. Basically, this is a complete and faithful rebuild of the Red Hat Enterprise Linux system.

Here is how they get the question “What are the differences between CentOS and Red Hat ES/AS?.”

A quick tour through the forums seems to indicate that the users are very happy with this product, and I expect I will be as well. I’ll know more within a few days, and I will be sure to post an update at that time.
