Red Hat Enterprise Linux
by Red Hat
Red Hat charge users a fee for subscription services based on the total number of Units of Software or other Red Hat Products that are deployed, installed, used or executed.
For example, software subscriptions for Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server are priced based on the number and other characteristics of systems (e.g. Socket-pairs, Virtual Guests, etc.) on which users install the Software (usually this is for every two populated sockets in the server). This means that a 4-socket server with up to 1 guest and Premium support would cost twice that of a 4-socket server.
