CoreOS vs Red Hat Enterprise Linux: What are the differences?

CoreOS: Linux for Massive Server Deployments. CoreOS is designed for security, consistency, and reliability. Instead of installing packages via yum or apt, CoreOS uses Linux containers to manage your services at a higher level of abstraction. A single service's code and all dependencies are packaged within a container that can be run on one or many CoreOS machines; Red Hat Enterprise Linux: Secure Operating System and Platform for Enterprise Hybrid Clouds. Red Hat Enterprise Linux includes military-grade security technologies—from network firewall control to secure containers for application isolation—to prevent intrusions and protect your data.

CoreOS and Red Hat Enterprise Linux can be primarily classified as "Operating Systems" tools.

SoFi, Astronomer, and Instamojo are some of the popular companies that use CoreOS, whereas Red Hat Enterprise Linux is used by Kanteron Systems, Voices.com, and Ericsson. CoreOS has a broader approval, being mentioned in 45 company stacks & 12 developers stacks; compared to Red Hat Enterprise Linux, which is listed in 14 company stacks and 13 developer stacks.

    What are some alternatives to CoreOS and Red Hat Enterprise Linux?
    Docker
    The Docker Platform is the industry-leading container platform for continuous, high-velocity innovation, enabling organizations to seamlessly build and share any application — from legacy to what comes next — and securely run them anywhere
    LinuxKit
    LinuxKit, a toolkit for building custom minimal, immutable Linux distributions. Designed for building and running clustered applications, including but not limited to container orchestration such as Docker or Kubernetes.
    Rancher
    Rancher is an open source container management platform that includes full distributions of Kubernetes, Apache Mesos and Docker Swarm, and makes it simple to operate container clusters on any cloud or infrastructure platform.
    Docker Swarm
    Swarm serves the standard Docker API, so any tool which already communicates with a Docker daemon can use Swarm to transparently scale to multiple hosts: Dokku, Compose, Krane, Deis, DockerUI, Shipyard, Drone, Jenkins... and, of course, the Docker client itself.
    Ubuntu
    Ubuntu is an ancient African word meaning ‘humanity to others’. It also means ‘I am what I am because of who we all are’. The Ubuntu operating system brings the spirit of Ubuntu to the world of computers.
