For our environment, SLES provides a more cost-efficient, standards-based Linux with Enterprise support available than their competitors. They also provide the best compatibility between their enterprise Linux and community distributions.

SLES is comparable to RedHat, where both of them have massive customer loyalty in their own niche markets.
However, RedHat is much widely used, even though both of them are RPM-based. RedHat has the backing of the USA tech companies which just make them a giant compared to SLES. However, sometimes the application development is much easier in SLES compared to RedHat. Also if you are in the market for a very long term solution based on my experience I would say it is better to go for SLES.

  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL)
It is very similar, but SLES wins on the manageability front, with good built-in tools, the ability to upgrade major versions, and the ability to run on the latest Power 9 systems. It is our platform of choice for SAP; there is great collaboration between SAP and SUSE, and it shows on both products and greatly benefits us in stability, security, performance, and manageability.

  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) and CentOS
We consulted our service provider on their recommendation and made some research ourselves. It was a hands down win for Suse Linux on both fronts so we readily chose Suse Linux for our operating system of choice.
Red Hat and CentOS would almost be of the same distro package, except Red Hat is commercial and CentOS is a community maintained distro. However, as what was gathered from various sources, Suse Linux is the best choice for our SAP HANA.

SUSE Linux is a great choice overall and it was selected because of the excellent support for our Cisco (SuperMicro) servers that we use for our video surveillance platform. The platform is a Linux only offering so we spent some time testing different distributions until we settled on SUSE Linux in part because of its affordable licensing and maintenance renewal costs.

  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL)
We have been using RHEL in most of our other projects. We chose Suse Linux for their pricing model and ease of patching. There is no other major pros and cons of RHEL over Suse Linux and vice versa.
