Why pay for open source Linux? Avoid the hidden cost of DIY

Tuesday, Oct. 18, 2022, 10 AM PT | 1 PM ET

Organizations can pick between numerous community-supported distributions of the Linux® operating system. In the datacenter and on Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE), Cloudflare, DigitalOcean, and other public cloud environments, these versions are available as part of the default configuration at no cost. Why, then, would someone pay for Linux?

Join Torsten Volk, Managing Research Director at EMA, and Dan Pacek, Manager of Market and Competitive Intelligence for Red Hat® Enterprise Linux, to discover why choosing an enterprise Linux subscription model could bring organizations more value. You will learn how a commercially-supported Linux distribution, such as Red Hat Enterprise Linux, can lower operational costs and risk while simplifying the gradual migration of enterprise applications and modern cloud native applications from the datacenter into public cloud environments, and back as necessary.

This research-based webinar will provide insights into what has and has not worked related to the adoption of no-cost versus subscription-based Linux distributions.

In this webinar, you'll learn how a commercial Linux distribution can help you:

  • Enhance productivity with DevOps life cycles, unified management across all applications, and more.
  • Increase efficiency by saving on headcount and simplifying operations across the datacenter and cloud environments.
  • Lower operational risk by focusing on security.
  • Boost digital transformation by accelerating the transition toward a cloud-native application architecture.
