"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 most valuable features are the specification and technical guides, they are most important the security."
"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."
"Customer support is valuable."
"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 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."
"We find the Red Hat Satellite deployments very useful. It integrates well with other solutions."
"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."
"The initial setup is very straightforward."
"The stability of the solution is good. We have not had any issue with performance."
"The solution offers a secure operation system."
"SUSE Linux Enterprise is scalable."
"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."
"Linux is easy to use. You have more control on a Unix system."
"It's a flexible solution."
"The feature that I have found the most valuable is that it is open source. It is also very easy to manage. We can manage it ourselves."
"You can do everything you need to do with a browser."
"We can easily customize the NTS Client code."
"You can scale the solution quite well."
"The auto upgrade operating system feature."
"There is value in the long-time supported distribution LPS."
"It is more powerful because you have more control over it."
"We use Ubuntu Linux because it is scalable, stable and developer-friendly."
"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."
"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'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."
"Their pricing and documentation can be improved."
"It is mostly better than other solutions. However, it is sometimes difficult for disaster recovery, so we have to plan accordingly."
"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."
"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.""
"It could be a bit more user-friendly. It could also be cheaper."
"I would like to see GUI improved, it could be more user-friendly."
"We have had trouble integrating Autodesk with the SUSE manager."
"I would like to see better functionality for interacting with cloud-based systems."
"In the next release it would be nice to see more integration and better automation of processses."
"The interface could improve."
"SUSE could make more APIs available."
"I have not seen an ROI with this solution."
"Red Hat has more packages that are available than SUSE does. I'd love to see more projects based on SUSE."
"It could be better for working with software at a high resolution."
"The solution could improve by having the user interface use fewer resources."
"You have to do a lot of configurations yourself. It is not very user friendly."
"I don't like the graphical interface in Ubuntu and it should be better."
"The interface could be more user-friendly."
"After only a week of using the solution, we haven't really found any limitations or missing features."
"We don't have any support, so we search for answers online. However, it can sometimes be a little messy to find the information if you have a highly specific question or a strange problem. It would be nice if finding information were a little simpler. Maybe they could have some portal that could point you to where you can find information."
"The stability definitely can be improved. When we are implementing patches and new releases, it tends to fail."
