CentOS Review

Very robust with good monitoring; GUI could be merged and expansion simplified

What is most valuable?

This solution is a very robust operating system, particularly when compared to Windows. It's informative and easy to work with and there's no extra cost involved in installation which reduces our overheads. The monitoring is good. 

What needs improvement?

I think the GUI could be merged and expansion simplified; both those things would be an improvement. Upgrading servers could be simplified because increasing the hard disk is quite complex.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using this solution for close to 12 years. 

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

This is a solid solution. 

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The solution is scalable and flexible. Even after installing CentOS, it can be expanded.  

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is very straightforward. 

What other advice do I have?

I recommend CentOS 8 if you're okay with the command line then there's no better option and it's open source. 

I rate this product a seven out of 10.
