"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."
"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 feature that I like the most is that we can integrate it easily with our existing infrastructure. We found that it is much easier to deploy RHEL in our environment compared to a competing distribution like Ubuntu."
"The most valuable features are the specification and technical guides, they are most important the security."
"The best system I've ever used is Red Hat, in terms of its ability and consistency of the operating system. Other than that, the vast majority of applications that I had, you can deploy Red Hat with the support of the vast majority of applications. We don't have many issues with the OS, the support is very good."
"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 solution has features that simplify adoption for non-Linux users. There is an interface that you can activate on RHEL systems, and on other Linux systems as well, so that you will get a graphical user interface instead of just a shell. It's easier for an administrator who is used to only working on Windows."
"The stability of the solution is good. We have not had any issue with performance."
"I have not experienced any issues with this operating system."
"The main feature is that Linux is flexible to work with for most web-based applications."
"The most valuable feature is that there is an inbuilt HANA firewall."
"The initial setup is very straightforward."
"The solution is easy to use, secure and allows for simple manipulation."
"Linux is easy to use. You have more control on a Unix system."
"SUSE Linux Enterprise is scalable."
"It is more powerful because you have more control over it."
"Ubuntu is good for machine learning. It's also a good option for any type of application, like multimedia and movies."
"The initial setup is very easy."
"Windows needs a refresh option to refresh its screen, but Ubuntu doesn't need that. It refreshes automatically and works well."
"The solution has high fantastic performance."
"The initial setup is simple."
"The most valuable feature of this solution is that Linux has cost-effective licenses."
"Some of the main features of this solution are it is less prone to viruses since most viruses are written for Microsoft software, and it is easy to use."
"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."
"The vulnerability assessment part should also be improved. We do a lot of patching regularly. They try to fix an issue very quickly, and we also end up facing bugs that are not properly documented. When releasing the general availability for a particular solution, they need to do a lot more work on their side."
"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."
"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."
"The price is something that can be improved, as they are still being undercut."
"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."
"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."
"It is mostly better than other solutions. However, it is sometimes difficult for disaster recovery, so we have to plan accordingly."
"The free version sometimes has security holes."
"The initial setup could be simplified."
"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."
"I have not seen an ROI with this solution."
"I would like to see GUI improved, it could be more user-friendly."
"The interface could improve."
"At times, it can be complex when we are trying to integrate or when we are trying to set up some features."
"We use and have previously used Windows 10 which is a lot better."
"Similar to Windows 10, I would like the ability to manage it on Azure or integrate it with Azure."
"More security features are needed to protect the current file system to prevent attacks."
"There is a large open-sourced community that is helpful. I had a lot of problems when starting out and there was plenty of assistance throughout the community. Since everyone is helping for free the support could be better."
"There is not a lot of support for applications in Ubuntu Linux. In the industry, most of the applications work for Windows and Mac. There should be better integration with applications in the future."
"It could always be a bit more secure."
"The repository needs to be kept up to date all of the time."
