With shrinking IT budgets, organizations must work as cost-effectively and efficiently as possible. To reduce costs in the datacenter, many IT managers are investigating or moving to commodity x86-based servers to replace their legacy RISC servers, such as those based on Oracle SPARC processors. To help ensure reliable, efficient operation, the majority of companies migrating from SPARC migrate to Red Hat Enterprise Linux as well.
By migrating to Red Hat Enterprise Linux, you gain the flexibility to run the applications you require on the right platform, regardless of processor type, without sacrificing the RAS features of enterprise UNIX or replacing or retraining administrative staff. This paper discusses how this flexibility and similarity to Solaris make Red Hat Enterprise Linux an ideal choice for your migration projects.
