Is There a Place for Debian in the Enterprise?

Users who are technically self-supporting and don't want to pay Red Hat for service and support could deploy Debian, says Open Source Development Lab
analyst Stacey Quandt, "and it would lead to greater return on investment."

Although Linux is increasingly popular in the enterprise, not all Linux distributions will find a place in the corporate data center. While the Red
Hat and SuSE distributions power
many enterprise servers, there are hundreds of Linux distributions, many of them free, that rarely are used in business settings.

In theory, at least, these free versions offer a tempting alternative for enterprises attempting to cut costs.
