With Linux’ total dominance of the cloud and internet server space, it is more proven to scale than any other operating system. With most distributions being entirely free and open source software, it offers the lowest financial thresholds for first deployment and long term usage alike.
We generally commit to using distributions that have long term support options available such as Debian, Ubuntu, Red Hat, SuSE and more recently Alma Linux. We have a preference for distributions that are free and open source for all but the largest and most risk averse deployments.
Linux supports more CPU architectures than any other operating system and is generally the first operating system to support new hardware platforms as they are released.
