Why not go for CentOS 7 instead? It is essentially the same thing as RHEL but for free. RHEL just has faster updated, paid support and a few other things. In other words, unless you are running a production server requiring the fastest possible security updates, I wouldn't recommend RHEL.

https://www.centos.org/download/

Also these days, CentOS is pretty much as close to being owned by Red Hat as can be without having CentOS listed as a subsidiary.

Fedora is the bleeding edge testing distribution that will eventually filter technologies and updates into RHEL, but it most defintely is NOT the same. Fedora uses a much newer kernel, much newer software, etc. This makes it much better for newer hardware, but also makes it nowhere near as rock solid stable.

Basically, "Red HatŪ" Linux is a professional services offering, centered around their proprietary flavor of Linux. For a moderate fee, they will provide mostly hands-free support of their installations. They also provide a variety of other for-fee services: exactly the sort of thing that a corporation might wish for.

And – take it from a happy "IPO-day stockholder" who never sold it off – they have been very successful at it. Their annual report is always interesting.

Since day one, Red Hat's business proposition has been "Pay to Play, and you'll Get what you Pay for." In other words, they didn't start out with a non-fee proposition at all. They took a chapter straight from IBM's well-thumbed playbook.

Partly in the spirit of open-source and partly for the very pragmatic reason of maximizing awareness of their product and its particular ways of doing business, Red Hat also offers CentOS and Fedora. They also offer certifications and, I am told, keep a fairly tight rein on their education delivery system.
