About CentOS

CentOS is the enterprise grade Linux Operating System built using the same source code as Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) to provide a free to use alternative to Red Hat's commercial Linux offering, with only the branding changed. This distribution is popular with business users as it provides a free alternative to the commercial Red Hat Enterprise Linux. Although there is a vibrant, active community of users, CentOS is a non commercial Open Source project, which means that there is no support available directly by the CentOS team.

Transitiv Technologies have many years experience providing support & consultancy for CentOS. Our professional team can assist your business in providing consultancy, comprehensive training or support, tailor made for your business' individual requirements. As well as CentOS support, we can also offer consultancy and training for other Linux distributions, please contact us to find out how we can help you.
