Canonical Talks Up Why Ubuntu Is A Great Replacement To CentOS
Published on the Ubuntu Blog today was an outline on why Ubuntu is a great replacement to CentOS in the financial services infrastructure space. Red Hat Enterprise Linux / CentOS has long enjoyed a stronghold in the financial services sector while with the fundamental changes to CentOS, financial companies may be reconsidering their operating system decisions.
Among the points being promoted in trying to get the financial services industry interested in Ubuntu are the reliable release schedules, enterprise-grade support available from Canonical, its performance and versatility, security and compliance for the full stack, multi-cloud support, and Ubuntu being the reference platform for Kubernetes.
For those interested in the Canonical/Ubuntu self-promoted reasons why they think this Linux distribution is great for the financial services industry as a replacement to CentOS, you can read the post on the Ubuntu blog.
