Red Hat Announces Free RHEL for Development Teams and Small Production Workloads

Facing the last days of 2020 from Red Hat they announced that CentOS was going to be history very soon. CentOS Linux was left aside and everything was bet on CentOS Stream. CentOS Linux 8, as the RHEL 8 equivalent, will be history later this year. Something that, naturally, many developers did not like.

Starting the new year, to try to remedy the bad taste in the mouth that many were left with, Red Hat has announced that Red Hat Enterprise Linux will be free for development teams and production workloads with a maximum of 16 servers within the extended Red Hat Developer program.

Until now, the program allowed free access to RHEL for development purposes only and on a single machine. As of February 1, according to the announcement by IBM, the expanded program will allow developers with an individual subscription to use this Linux enterprise platform in production and on up to 16 systems. And yes, without cost and without the intention of selling, they promise.

In addition, the expanded Red Hat Developer program will also allow RHEL to run on major business clouds such as AWS, Google Cloud Platform, and Microsoft Azure.

If they go beyond the limit contemplated, you will have to choose to go to the cashier or opt for alternatives budding like Rocky Linux, AlmaLinux or Navy Linux that can take the witness of the primal CentOS.

These changes will not satisfy everyone, they acknowledge from Red Hat, and announce that they are working on other solutions

Regarding development teams, Red Hat now contemplates in its developer program that all development teams can join the program and benefit from its advantages. This can be good for the members of these teams and also for Red Hat Enterprise Linux, since it will be more accessible as a development platform.

Despite everything, from the provider of enterprise open source solutions ensure they are aware that not all current CentOS Linux users will see it feasible to switch to CentOS Stream and that these developments will not be suitable for all CentOS Linux use cases.

Therefore, they say, "We're not done offering more ways to get RHEL easily". "We are working on a variety of additional programs for other use cases and we plan to provide another update in mid-February," they advance. We'll be alert.
