Red Hat Enterprise Linux is the premier operating system for open source computing. It's certified by top enterprise software and hardware vendors, and is backed by a Red Hat network subscription and up to 24 x 7 support with one-hour response.
Red Hat Enterprise Linux creates a reliable, secure, high-performance platform designed for today's commercial environments - with capabilities that match or surpass those of proprietary operating systems. Red Hat Enterprise Linux delivers a consistent application, management, and user environment.
Red Hat Enterprise Linux is the corporate Linux standard, already at work running some of the world's largest commercial, government, and academic institutions. For any deployment - from the desktop to the datacenter - Red Hat Enterprise Linux delivers unmatched performance and cost savings, and the freedom of open source technology.
Eliminate barriers to adoption
Red Hat Enterprise Linux solutions, in combination with other Red Hat technologies - such as JBoss middleware solutions - provide the easy, no-risk path to open source cost savings. Use commodity hardware. Interoperate easily with existing UNIX and Windows infrastructure. Deploy applications you know and trust. Reduce system administration costs through high server/admin ratios and desktop-to-mainframe consistency.
Eliminate economic constraints
Basing your solution on open source technologies wherever practical - from the virtualization hypervisor to the SOA middleware to the end user application - guarantees you'll make the most of your IT budget. Despite what vendors of single solutions tell you about their product's cost - it's the overall total cost that matters.
Broadest open source ecosystem
Customers using deployment paradigms, including virtualization, need the confidence they can deploy on the widest range of hardware and applications - now and in the future. Red Hat's open source development brings you the world's largest open source ecosystem of certified hardware and software.
Applications - certify once-deploy anywhere
Red Hat Enterprise Linux provides a standardized environment for your applications so they can be deployed however your business requires. And Red Hat application partners need only certify their applications once. With thousands of applications certified to run on Red Hat Enterprise Linux, you can run the application you need, where you need it, today.
Choose your preferred way to deploy
Red Hat Enterprise Linux is the most flexible operating system environment available. Enterprise Linux solutions are ideal for all of these deployment types - using the same applications.
