News - Sun: Upgrading from Linux to Solaris

Jul 18, 2007 Sun: Upgrading from Linux to Solaris
When "good enough" is no longer good enough

Like many IT veterans, Sun Executive Vice President for Software Rich Green witnessed numerous enterprises adopting Linux in the 1990s to meet the demanding requirements of Web applications and services. Now Green is witnessing a new trend: Issues surrounding the long-term benefits and cost-effectiveness of Linux are causing IT managers to reassess the places where the operating system makes sense.

In this issue of Sun Inner Circle, Green explains why many enterprises today are opting to upgrade from Linux to the Solaris OS and how that's helping enterprises scale IT infrastructures to meet pressing business challenges.

Green is responsible for defining the vision and roadmap for Sun’s software strategy, including the Solaris OS, Java Enterprise System suites, N1 management software, and Sun Studio and Java Studio developer tools. Green’s perspective is based on more than 20 years of industry experience, 16 of which have been spent at Sun, and close involvement with industry-standards efforts and open source communities have contributed to his insights into the evolution of developer platforms and enterprise software.

The internet as we know it is reaching its limits.  Within 18 months it is estimated that the number of new devices able to connect to the world wide web will plummet as we run out of "IP addresses" -- the unique codes that provide access to the internet for everything from PCs to smart phones.
