Make a Unix-to-Linux migration for the right reasons

Unix-to-Linux migration can help customer's save money and improve efficiency -- but only if the Linux migration is made for the right reason. If a customer is interested in running Linux on blade servers or saving money on an OS, then the move can work.

Right reasons

  • You want to consider blade technologies.
  • To run Linux on commodity hardware in the form of PCs.
  • You or your customer wants best-of-breed applications.
  • To reduce costs.

Wrong reasons

  • It's free -- SUSE and Red Hat distributions are not and neither is phone support.
  • You love Linux PC.
