RedHat subscription offerings- what is the benefits on each type?

Latest response

I read this link today but like to know more details on each type https://www.redhat.com/rhel/purchasing_guide.html.

I tried to look for links that explains the differences of benefits and limitations of the below offerings, but couldn't find it. I really appreciate for any help to obtain the information.

Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server - Standard (up to 1 guest)

Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server - Premium (up to 1 guest)

Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server - Standard (up to 4 guests)

Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server - Premium (up to 4 guests)

Sounds like you are trying to determine which level of support you require for RHEL Server:

You know you need RHEL Server, now you have to decide how many guests you need, and what level of service. Hope this helps...

The following link may help you understand exactly the scope of support as well:

So, what type of guests?   Does this mean RHEL guests only?   What about Win server guests?   Do they count towards the 4-guest limit?

Hopefully this will help?

This video also explains in full how one can use a subscription, and details virtualization (hypervisors + guests).

Based on the video, around the 30 minute mark, the calculation of the number of guests needed for subscriptions is not including Win guests.

 

Thanks. 

 

There was much more useful information on this video, but I did not know I needed to know about all this.
