In addition to Almalinux, Rocky Linux (is developed by the community under the leadership of the founder of Centos), Vzlinux (prepared by Virtuozzo), Oracle Linux, Suse Linux and Eurolinux as alternatives. In addition, Red Hat has provided the possibility of free use of RHEL in organizations developing open software, and in the environment of individual developers, numbering up to 16 virtual or physical systems.
