Customers using CentOS feeds sales to RedHat

Posted by: Anonymous Coward on April 19, 2007 09:03 PM

In many, many situations I've installed CentOS at
the evaluation stage of a project where the
budget is tight. Once the system is proven and the
client is happy to roll-out the system into production,
it is often switched to a RedHat installation
as the customer wants the big-company support
behind it - the company that is approved by
the software vendor.

CentOS for me is a great sales/evaluation tool.
It vastly reduces the time/complexity in getting
a single-server install up, running and patched.
Ultimately, it has resulted in sales for RedHat
down the line.



Return to CentOS 5 is a solid enterprise OS
