What big advantages have you to use Solaris instead of Windows?
Posted on 2004-08-13
My company is a middle-size company with six locations, 40+ server, and 400+ network users. Now all servers use Windows 2000/2003 as OS and all users use Windows XP/2000/98 as OS. Now I have a chance to think if I should try Solaris for a new server. Please advice.
1. What big advantages have you to use Solaris instead of Windows? (please do not tell me because your company is a large company or it was the way when you joined your company, but tell me from technology perspective.)
2. Which area is a good start for Solaris, for example, file server, web server, email server (I am using exchange 5.5/2000), or other?
3. Any other input?
Thanks in advance
