How can Centos be beneficial for your company


CentOs comes from the Red Hat Enterprise Server which is Linux-based. It is a commercial operating system. CentOS is a lot more stable than other freely distributed Linux systems because it is a commercially released system. When compared to other Linux-based operating system, CentOS runs only most basic stable versions of the softwares, thereby reducing system crashes.


CentOS can operate and function much faster than any Linux-based operating systems, because it is lightweight and runs only the basic versions of software. This is why CentOS system does not go down even loaded with several applications running on it. CentOS programs have lesser security bugs or blocker bugs, which improves computing speeds or prevents systems crash.


The CentOS does not require any additional system updates frequently like the other Linux Based operating systems. Hardware upgrades for CentOS are developed to be concurrent with Red Hat Enterprise Linux system upgrades that CentOS is based on. CentOS is upgradable every 5 years, other Linux based system have shorter support cycles ranging from 18 months to 3 years.


CentOS has Xen Virtualization, where you can run a virtual PC on your host server that shares its CPU and memory. Multiple copies of CentOS can be run from a server on the same hardware. You can host guest operating systems like windows because it supports hardware virtualization.
