I use Fedora since its first release to power tens of servers. Today I have
servers running KVM infrastructures, Ceph, the core monitoring system of a
nuclear power plant (we are migrating from F23 to F25 on July), scientific
calculations servers, my own laptop, backup servers, samba servers, web
services, and I probably forget a few!
I started with Fedora because it used to have the latest drivers for new
hardware. Nowadays high end hardware does not change as fast, so you can
probable get away with a CentOS distribution.
Normally I install a reasonably recent version on my laptop (I'm running
F25 now), then migrate non-critical servers like Zabbix or proxies, and as
gain confidence I move the rest.
On the personal side, it allows me to evolve, like updating the code to
more recent gcc versions, learn how to deal with systemd, or dnf, or
firewalld, etc. I still don't like NetworkManager for servers :-)
That's it, I'm a fan!

Hey! Are you a user of Fedora in a server context? I'd love to
from you (either in public or private, on the record or off). How do
you use Fedora? Do you use it in production? At scale? (If so, know
you're not alone.)
Do you find Fedora Server as defined at
useful to you? Do you fit into the target audiences and use cases? Or,
are you using Fedora Server in a different way? Or, Fedora _as_ a
server but not the Server edition?
