For large businesses looking to embrace Linux and open source solutions, one of the best — if not the best — enterprise-grade operating systems is RHEL. Red Hat Enterprise Linux is rock solid and offers legendary support.
What if you aren’t a big business, however, and don’t need, or cannot afford Red Hat support? In other words, maybe you have some Linux professionals on staff at your small business, but still want the stability and usability of RHEL. Enter CentOS. This totally free and community-supported enterprise Linux distro — based on RHEL — should totally meet your needs. Today, a new release, version 7 1511 is made available.
