CentOS Valuable Features
Lead Solutions Architect - International Projects at a media company with 501-1,000 employees
The performance in the past, the open-source approach, has been great.
It helps us with our internal applications for very low pricing.
All our applications internally have been running on CentOS since 2006 when I joined the company so we have been developing on things like that.
We use the solution due to the fact that it's a lightweight, powerful, stable OS. It's being used for a lot of different use cases.
The stability is very good.
The pricing is good. We pay a minimal fee.View full review »
It has minimal updates compared to other distributions. We like the idea of long-term support. CentOS gives us a peace of mind when it comes to updates. It's also a bonus that most of our vendor supported hardware/software is built with CentOS under the hood, allowing us to stay in the Fedora ecosystem.
The user access level is most valuable. When you do administration with CentOS, the number of customizations that you can do for each user is higher than other solutions. It is very customizable.
Its memory consumption is much lower than any other OS.View full review »
