Red Hat introduces free RHEL for small production workloads and development teams
In response to complaints about Red Hat's latest plans for CentOS Linux, the vendor will start offering free RHEL for small production workloads and customer development teams.
When Red Hat announced it was switching up CentOS Linux from a stable Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) clone to a rolling Linux distribution, which would become the next minor RHEL update, many CentOS users were upset. Now, to appease some of those users, Red Hat is introducing no-cost RHEL for small production workloads and no-cost RHEL for customer development teams.
First, in place of CentOS Linux, Red Hat would like to remind developers that no-cost RHEL has long existed through the Red Hat Developer program. The offering terms formerly limited its use to single-machine developers. Now Red Hat will expand this program so that the Individual Developer subscription for RHEL can be used in production for up to 16 systems.
