Free operating system for reliable web server

CentOS Linux is a cost-effective solution for enterprise-level web servers. Very stable and secure too.

PROS

CentOS Linux is a free and open-source operating system based on Red Hat Enterprise Linux. It has been mainly used to host enterprise-grade web applications. It is a stable, secure, and reliable operating system that also offers a graphical user interface for personal computers. Most preferred OS by Webhosting providers.

CONS

Red Hat community is supporting CentOS 8 until the end of 2021, while support for CentOS 7 will be until 2024. This has created little uncertainty about its future. Its GUI interface for personal computers is difficult to customize.

Reason for choosing CentOS Linux

Because of easy availability, stability, and reliability.

Reasons for switching to CentOS Linux

CentOS Linux is a more secure, stable, and cost-effective operating system for running web servers.

A stable distribution for your applications and services

I have used this Linux distribution for more than 5 years to develop applications as a development environment and as a telephony service server, say PBX, Asterix and more. It has been very useful and its constant updates have helped it to remain stable and to be one of the best Linux distributions used by developers and computer scientists.

PROS

What I like the most about this distribution is that it is easy to configure and put into operation, it is very stable for managing databases and applications

CONS

Currently I have no complaints about this distribution but they could improve the performance and distributed workload

Reason for choosing CentOS Linux

It is a distribution more oriented to developers and with greater library support

CentOS Honest Review

When I started my career as infrastructure engineer, my almost work is related to Linux, at my early stage it was difficult for me to learn and understand Linux but centOS solves the problem to learn linux. Now I can easily understand Linux and can do my daily tasks more efficiently and perfectly. Also almost every organisation has adapted cloud so it is easy to move from CentOS to Amazon cloud Linux. I would say if you are at your learning phase then CentOS is the best. Also if have small or medium enterprise then there is nothing better than CentOS.

PROS

CentOS is an open source operating system, it's easy to use and features are awesome.i like the security feature the most.CentOS graphical user interface is fantastic, nowadays every organisation needs Linux at any point of time, I would say CentOS is best OS for beginners you can easily learn and understand Linux .

CONS

CentOS is little bit outdated than other OS like windows and Mac. I would if UI of CentOS can be enhanced and some new features will be added then it will be great.Installing the new packages is not easy in CentOS as compare to other OS.

Reasons for switching to CentOS Linux

Installing the packages easier on windows than CentOS. Windows UI is better than centOS.
