Debian and Ubuntu Surpass Red Hat and CentOS

Linux

In the ongoing battle of the Linux distributions, new survey findings show that businesses favor Debian and Ubuntu over Red Hat distributions for file servers, including RHEL and CentOS.

Among those using Linux on file servers, 67% of respondents use Debian distributions, while 54% use Red Hat. The survey of 100 small and medium business users, sponsored by Symform, was designed to identify the most common distributions among Linux users interested in additional data backup, particularly cloud-based solutions. While this survey focused on file servers, it aligns with other research that indicated Debian is also the most popular Linux distribution on web servers.
