Red Hat Enterprise Linux is a beautiful venture of Red Hat and a commercially supported derivative of Fedora. Red Hat freely provides its source code and works on desktops/servers/hypervisors/cloud now.

RHEL7 also lays the foundation for the open hybrid cloud and serves enterprise workloads across converged infrastructure.
The four platforms of RHEL7 include bare metal servers, virtual machines, open stack based infrastructure as a service and platform as a service. The various advantages include the ability to handle other Linux distributions like Mandrake, Suse etc, improved performance, stability and multitasking. We are witnessing more Linux accreditation in the world and therefore high job opportunities and career growth for individuals who are well versed in Linux technologies.
RHEL7 can be considered as the first major milestone update release for Red Hat since RHEL 6 was officially launched in November 2010. A lot has happened in the Linux development community and the broader technology landscape over the last four years, and RHEL7 is an effort to reflect that change.

To hear from Red Hat a success story of their most selling product – “Adobe Systems, a user of Red Hat® Enterprise Linux® since 2008, wanted to offer its enterprise customers easy access to sandbox resources to evaluate and prototype solutions using Adobe products. Turning to the cloud, Adobe used Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Amazon Web Services (AWS) to not only deliver a sandbox solution, but also to offer customers a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) option for deploying Adobe-based solutions. Today, Adobe is using Red Hat platform and Amazon Web Services to help customers simplify deployment, lower cost of ownership, and accelerate time to value.” – Red Hat
