Exploiting the Potential of Linux - CA


Why Linux is the right alternative for organizations seeking to optimize resources and improve service as well as the challenges presented in integrating Linux into a heterogeneous IT environment.

Linux is ideally suited as an enterprise-class operating system for many reasons. One is its reliability. Linux systems offer mainframe-class stability with reported system uptimes of a year or more. Google, one of the Internet’s foremost search engines, runs on Linux servers and has run continuously for more than one-and-a-half years without any downtime, according to Google Chairman Eric Schmidt. Google’s operations also demonstrate another significant benefit of Linux: its scalability. With Linux, Google processes more than 200 million searches and serves up 4 billion web pages a day, and it does this on inexpensive Intel processors — more than 10,000 of them. Linux has matured since its inception more than a dozen years ago, and it is now ready for the mainstream enterprise.
