eBook: Linux is the platform for the future

IT is a core business differentiator. To support modern business initiatives, IT organisations must optimise their infrastructure with Linux and other enterprise open source software.

As one of the world’s most dominant operating systems with widespread adoption across industries and emerging technologies, Linux provides an ideal platform for modern IT. It is the de facto standard for highly available, reliable and critical workloads in data centres and cloud computing environments and supports a variety of use cases, target systems and devices. Every major public cloud provider – including Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform (GCP) and Alibaba Cloud – offers multiple distributions of Linux in their marketplaces. In fact, more than 75% of cloud-enabled enterprises report using Linux as their primary cloud platform.

Linux provides:

  • Open source innovation;
  • Consistency across infrastructure;
  • Container portability;
  • Massive scalability; and
  • Continuous security.

Choosing the right Linux distribution for your organisation is crucial, whether you are deploying critical business applications or preparing for hybrid cloud operations. Different distributions offer different benefits and value, from features and integrations to support and partnerships. This e-book explores the value of Red Hat Enterprise Linux for your organisation and the experience you can expect to have as a Red Hat customer.
