Many of its customers are gradually looking to or already moving to alternate options. Those that have not yet will soon follow suit.

Red Hat Enterprise LINUX is obviously the other big name in cloud based operating systems. But the truth is most of the administrators in the industry are already well versed in Sun's Solaris OS. What if their company has already shifted to LINUX services? Well, it's not that difficult for expert administrators to get used to Red Hat Enterprise LINUX but for those that find it tedious, Red Hat does have a course that preps the admin moving from Solaris to Red Hat Enterprise LINUX.

As opposed to Solaris from Oracle, Red Hat offers an easier, risk-free, optimum-value alternate route. Red Hat Enterprise LINUX has been expertly, for a while now, replacing traditional UNIX based workloads across the offices greatly reducing costs of operation and providing hardware seller neutrality and higher flexibility for consumers and clients, both big and small across the IT globe.
