Red Hat Enterprise Linux is the premier operating system for open source computing. 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.
The Red Hat Enterprise Linux family of products provides the industry's most comprehensive suite of Linux solutions designed expressly for mission-critical enterprise computing. It delivers the highest levels of reliability and value - coupling the innovation of open source technology and the stability of a true enterprise-class platform.
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.
