Fredrik LehtonenSystems Analyst at Intraservice/City of G̦teborg
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"In terms of the solution’s single subscription and install repository for all types of systems, we can have as many RHEL installations as we want because we have a specific subscription that entitles us to have as many RHEL services as we want. We pay for a subscription and with that we get RHEL and Satellite as well."
"Red Hat Linux is inexpensive. Linux solutions are generally inexpensive."
"RHEL is expensive."
"Because it is a subscription, you can go elastic. This means you can buy a year, then you can skip a year. It is not like when you buy something. You don't buy it. You are paying for the support on something, and if you don't pay for the support on something, there is no shame because there are no upfront costs. It changes the equation. However, we have such growth right now on the Linux platform that we are reusing and scavenging these licenses. From a business standpoint, not having to buy, but just having to pay for maintenance, changes a lot of the calculations."
"We have a site license on a yearly basis. Generally, we're okay with its price, but everything could be cheaper."
