Re: Linux license for hosting companies?

Hi,

There is no licensing cost for utilizing "free" linuxes commercially. There may be costs for support however but if you can provide internal support, there is no cost to operate linux commercially and you do not need to even indicate to any vendors you're operating Linux commercially either.

But if you're mass deploying Linux in a datacenter it may be advisable to deploy a local software repository on-site that all servers refer to to avoid rushing the vendor's repos and to provide faster speeds to download/install packages, plus have your own in-house packages available by those repos as well.
