Which version of Red Hat Enterprise Linux do you need the CA DevTest products (CA SV, CA Application Test, CA Continuous Application Insight) to support?
Reference: Red Hat Enterprise Linux Release Dates - Red Hat Customer Portal
Only 4 votes? Anyone out there using RHEL to run DevTest?
Yes. Based on my observation on large enterprises (mostly financial institutions), usually the minor version before the latest will be the most used in large enterprise.
The vendor support forces the customers to stay in the latest 2 version number to keep them from paying the extended support.
My guess, 6.6 (the second latest of version 6) has the most users. The version 7 is relatively new, so only new deployments will likely use that version.
Companies don't just upgrade from RHEL 6 to 7 for existing production systems, except when they have to.
I don't understand this poll. Is it implying that the ONLY Linux onto which we can install DevTest is Red Hat Enterprise Linux? I have customers using various versions of OpenSUSE, Fedora, Slackware & Ubuntu, and I've successfully tried DevTest on kubuntu, Elemental and Tumbleweed.
Perhaps my issue is the definition of "support"? As far as I can tell, there are no differences in the versions of RHEL mentioned in the poll that should make any difference whatsoever to an application completely written in Java, and the only piece of DevTest on Linux that I've noticed not written in Java are the service start-up scripts. For these scripts, replicating the init.d scripts as systemd scripts would make them work for the newest releases. Could it be that "support" simply means (in the Linux world) "on the QA path, but should work with all variants based on a similar Java compiler"?
We use mostly 6.6 and 7 version..
it is nice to have in multiple versions
Why is RHEL 6.8 not on this list?
