Post Fedora In Production Environment


Since Redhat 9 is not longer supported by redhat . I wanted to know if anyone out there is using Fedora on any of there production boxes on the job.

I'm currently doing volunteer work at private school and I'm in the process of
implement a firewall / squidguard and other services .
I just want to see how fedora is used in field because I do have favor towards the redhat distro so I wanted to continue with the product if it's dependable enough for a production environment.

I'm using FC1 in production and it works fine. It's really just RH9 with a few minor tweaks and a new label, so if you know RH9 then FC1 is not much different. But in all fairness, the nice people at RH really only recommend their RH Enterprise edition for use in business environments and FC1 is more for hobbiests or personal desktops.

If you have a specific concern, let us know, but as far as setting up firewalls, it's just the same ol' iptables we've come to know from RH9.

I am as well using FC1 production. I know that the University I goto also uses FC1 on all of there servers, and they have many. FC1 is very stable, and in my opinion the best Redhat OS since 7.3

FC2 sucks it is not ready for production.

I would also like to add that if you need a highly optimized server check out the new gentoo.

Fedora Core 1 (FC 1) is missing a few things; not everything is cohesive and well integrated, but for the most part, the system works fine. If you make sure to obtain all security updates, FC 1 is just fine. I'm not sure I'd bet my business on it. I'd be more inclined to choose something like a Debian system or a Slackware system as my overall server. FC 1 on the desktop makes a fine choice.

If I was simply putting together a firewall (nothing else), I'd take a close look at one of the Live CD or floppy based specialty distros that specialize in firewall and/or server management. If, however, I wanted a system for general purpose use and I wanted it to include a firewall, then I'd consider FC 1 with a carefully configured set of IP ports enabled through iptables.
