I'm busy working through some self paced study to become Linux certified, but am not sure which one would be seen as more valuable. 

 

the Linux Foundation cert is focused on CentOS, which is essentially the "free" community supported version of Redhat (more or less). 

 

I seem to see equally a split between the two when looking at available jobs.. Which is seen as more valuable?

Coming from a big ISP which relies on Linux. We use neither :)

 

but in my view probably best to get Redhat, its probably more widely accepted.

thanks for the reply - out of curiosity, which base distro do they use?

We use Ubuntu, and a bit of redhat where required but try and avoid it.

I work for a bank and we're currently going through a migration from Solaris to RHEL for quite a bit of our stuff. I know Spark / Vodafone use both Solaris and RHEL too.

 

Most corporates use RHEL.

I have done Red Hat certification previously, they are certainly worth the investment.

 

In my experience, places that already use Debian or Ubuntu primarily will tell you not to bother with Red Hat certifications.

 

Most government agencies, medium-large NZ businesses, and recruitment agencies, will place value on the Red Hat certifications from a quick glance at a CV.

You don't happen to work at BNZ by any chance then? :)

LPI or LFCSA or RHCSA/RHCE are all useful.

 

As a starting point Red Hat now have a free intro online course

 

 - https://www.redhat.com/en/services/training/rh024-red-hat-linux-technical-overview

 

If you want to chat about RH courses give me a nudge and I'll happily jump on a call.

 

 

 

From a Business perspective a lot of smaller business and ISPs use Ubuntu/Debian and Corporate/Govt environments are usually RHEL, with a bit of SLES.

 

Oracle like to push Oracle Linux for their workloads, but I've yet to see anyone in NZ paying Ubuntu for support.





Generally known online as OpenMedia, now working for Red Hat New Zealand as a Solution Architect for all things Linux, Virtual and of course Cloud. Still playing with MythTV and digital media on the side.

Thanks for the link - very useful! I may very well take you up on that call at some stage soon. I'm busy going through some of the videos on Plural Sight as well, getting the basics and moving some more advanced stuff soon. 

 

Sounds like RHEL/CentOS and Debian/ubuntu are the mixes that pop up in most of the job ads I've seen. But I'll definitely focus on the RHEL certs.
