632,779 professionals have used our research since 2012.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It is scalable. The number of users would be in thousands. They include IT teams and end-users who obviously don't even know that they're using it.

How are customer service and support?

I don't call them directly, but their technical support is good. 

How was the initial setup?

It was straightforward. Our deployments are automated. To deploy a build internally, it only takes half an hour, but that's usually in automation. It would probably take a couple of months to put the infrastructure in place to be able to deploy it.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

We have a site license on a yearly basis. Generally, we're okay with its price, but everything could be cheaper.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend this solution to others. I would advise others to do their research before deploying it and make sure that they are up to speed with the OS and what it can do. It is fairly easy to use as long as you know what you're doing.

I would rate Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) an eight out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

On-premises
