Selecting a Linux Distro for an Enterprise Wide Deployment

 12:26 pm on Aug 29, 2007 (gmt 0)

Hey guys, for an enterprise wide deployment, what will you suggest and why among - Red Hat Linux, Suse Linux and Ubuntu Linux, also, do you think, we can negotiate the support pricing down?

For servers, desktops, or both? And what applications will need to run on these machines? Or where is your data currently stored that you will need to migrate over? And how many machines?

I use ubuntu for my laptop (very user friendly), and redhat for the server (stability).

I played a part in making Ubuntu a standard in both my previous and current companies. Though I myself am a die-hard fan of Slackware, Ubuntu has a nice balance of stability, hardware support and user-friendliness for use in the enterprise.

Do note that this is for desktop/laptop use. For servers, I would recommend CentOS/RHEL because that's what they're generally geared towards.

You should be able to negotiate on support licenses if you have a large deployment. Best to talk to their sales teams.

If you want "big iron" hardware certification then you probably want to run RHEL/CentOS or the SuSE equivalent.
