Red Hat and CentOS are essentially the same in terms of binaries; the only difference is the artwork and branding.  Red Hat offers paid subscription support (legally required to use their RHEL) which you don't get with CentOS though there are plenty of forums and other resources for CentOS.

I haven't done much with Suse myself and Ubuntu has been a bit limited to just home use.

Professional product support. If you run into any software issues with your server and have an active support agreement, you can call/email the support services for assistance.

Ubuntu also provides paid support subscriptions:

Although CentOS does not provide any direct support services, there are many communities/forums/mailing-lists out there to assist you when needed.
