Community Enterprise Operating System, also known as CentOS Linux is a Linux distribution that provides a free and open-source community-supported computing platform, functionally compatible with its upstream source, Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL).
CentOS first released in May 2004 as CentOS version 2.
In January 2014, CentOS announced the official joining with Red Hat while staying independent from RHEL, under a new CentOS governing board.

At CentOS.Cloud, we will soon begin offering a dedicated CentOS only cloud service.
