"Its security is the most valuable. It is very stable and has many features. It also has good performance. Some of our clients were using Windows servers and products. I suggested Red Hat Linux to them and described the features. They switched to it, and they really loved it. There were around 50 servers in my last company, and they switched all those servers from Windows to Red Hat. I used to manage those servers."
"The integrated solution approach reduces our TCO tremendously because we are able to focus on innovation instead of operations."
"This is a very robust product that doesn't require a lot of handling. It just works."
"Its scalability and ease of setup and configuration are most valuable. When we have a hardware failure, we just save the configuration files, and in about half an hour, we have another server running with the same configuration. It is really easy to replace servers. This is the best feature."
"The most valuable features are the specification and technical guides, they are most important the security."
"It is a well-established operating system. We have tried to implement almost every feature of a version in our environment, and it has been very reliable. We are not facing many production issues on a day-to-day basis. They have well-documented articles on their documentation site and a knowledge base on their website. When we need to implement anything, we are able to find information about the best practices and the solution."
"We find the Red Hat Satellite deployments very useful. It integrates well with other solutions."
"I like the fact that most of the system configuration is Namespace so it's easy to get to and easy to configure, and most of it still uses text documents. Not all of it's a menu-driven-type entry. I also like the fact that it's a very standard file system layout so it's easy to navigate."
"I have not experienced any issues with this operating system."
"The solution offers a secure operation system."
"The main feature is that Linux is flexible to work with for most web-based applications."
"The initial setup is very straightforward."
"The stability of the solution is good. We have not had any issue with performance."
"Linux is easy to use. You have more control on a Unix system."
"The solution is easy to use, secure and allows for simple manipulation."
"SUSE Linux Enterprise is scalable."
"Linux overall needs improvement. They cannot go much beyond what Linus Torvalds's kernel implementation can do. I come from AIX, and there were very cool things in AIX that I am missing dearly, e.g., being able to support not only adding, but also reducing memory and number of processors. That is not supported on Linux right now, and it is the same for the mainstream file systems supported by Red Hat. There is no way of reducing a file system or logical volume. Whereas, in AIX, it was a shoo-in. These are the little things where we can say, "Ah, we are missing AIX for that.""
"I'm not sure how the support is being changed in terms of needing to pay for it. That's an area that can be improved. They should offer support without charging users for it."
"I would like training to be added to the subscription. It would be useful for when you have to train yourself or get a certification. There are many things that we are not using because we don't know how to use them. Having training included in the subscription would help us in learning more things and utilizing the full power of the solution."
"The accessibility to the resources could be more widespread. We have to put a lot of effort into finding indigenous information on the site. For example, the license information is convoluted. This information should be easier for customers to access."
"The price is something that can be improved, as they are still being undercut."
"Their pricing and documentation can be improved."
"I'd like to see more of NCurses type menu systems in some instances. We're dealing with SUSE Enterprise Linux, they have an NCurses menu system. It's a menu system. It will write there. Even some of the higher-end Unix systems like AIX have some inner menu system where all the configuration tools are right there so your administrator doesn't have to jump through multiple directories to configure files if needed. I like the simplicity of Red Hat because it's pretty easy but having an NCurses menu when you have to get something done quickly would be nice."
"Sometimes they don't have new versions for applications like Apache or PHP. I understand it's because they have to have support for them, so they can't have the latest version all the time, but that's the main thing I see that could be improved."
"I have not seen an ROI with this solution."
"I would like to see GUI improved, it could be more user-friendly."
"The free version sometimes has security holes."
"I would like to see better functionality for interacting with cloud-based systems."
"Red Hat has more packages that are available than SUSE does. I'd love to see more projects based on SUSE."
"In the next release it would be nice to see more integration and better automation of processses."
"The initial setup could be simplified."
"SUSE could make more APIs available."
