How to choose the best Linux server for your business

In particular, employers are having trouble finding staffers with a few years of Linux experience under their belts. That is to say, exactly the employees you need to keep your Linux server trains running on schedule.

What that means for you is that if you don’t already have a crew of Linux veterans, you should avoid Linux server distributions, such as Debian, that don’t have a vendor to back them up with training and support.

Don’t get me wrong. Debian’s great with an experienced staff, but if your people can’t tell BASH from C Shell you don’t want them using Debian.

If your crew is new to Linux you need to use a commercial Linux. Here, as anyone can tell you, your Linux of choice is Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
