A free, open source, Red Hat based distro produced by CERN, DESY, Fermilab and ETH Zurich.
Scientific Linux (SL) was mainly developed to support the needs of the Physics scientific community around the world.
However, due to its stability & backing, it has become a popular alternative to CentOS for many Linux enthusiasts.
As a Red Hat based Linux distribution, SL uses the YUM (Yellowdog Update Manager), which provides an easy method of updating & install software on your virtual server.
Its Red Hat Linux based lineage ensures a well maintained, free, software platform for your VPS.
Scientific Linux can be used for any Linux business application & is not limited to scientific applications only.
You can run the normal web, email, database, etc. server software that you would use on any other Red Hat based distro.
