About Linux servers and management tools

Linux is an open source operating system based on the Linux kernel. Despite early skepticism, Linux has become a force to contend with in the world of enterprise servers. Linux code is freely available for anyone to alter through the GNU General Public License, and hundreds of Linux distributions have been developed since the Linux kernel's release in the 1994. Linux has been extremely successful in enterprise environments because of its low cost, high performance and ability to run in a range of computing architectures. However, choosing the right Linux OS for your data centre can be daunting, with well-known commercial distributions like Red Hat, Novell SUSE, CentOS and Ubuntu vying for customers. In this topic, get comparisons of the best Linux distributions and information on Linux server management, tools, security and more.
