    Hi everyone,

    Appreciating and looking for advises on a selection ...

    I've been given a requirement to use one of the following distributions for a series of experiments with database servers (Vertica and most likely PostgreSQL too):

    Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 and 6

    SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11

    Debian Linux 6 and Ubuntu 14.04 LTS


    Which one would you pick and why?

    Thanks greatly for help.

    Debian - a detailed man.
    +all questions have answers in the Internet.
  3. I prefer Ubuntu because

    • stability
    • support
    • commonly used as a server
    • developed by a commercial corporation (Canonical Ltd.)
    • I have used it as a server before
    • lightweight and fast
    • secure

    From your list I would pick Ubuntu 14.04 LTS. Ubuntu is popular so it's easy to find help and picking an LTS release is important so you get security updates for a long time.
