The Redhat operating system was developed by the Redhat Company as a follow up to the Fedora operating system. The Redhat has several version or editions of the main operating version. Apart from the regular updates in versions; the Redhat also has versions dedicated for use in personal computers and business computers (the enterprise version) and another particular version to be used in server configuration and setup.
The Redhat server edition is a very useful operating tool for the VPs server managers as it comes with built in server setups and configuration files. The servers included in the package include the various types of servers such as NFS server (for Linux to Linux file transfer), Samba server (For transfer between the Linux and Windows platforms), the Apache server configuration (for hosting web sites and web pages), the FTP (File transfer protocol) server, mail server, firewall and many more.
