Migrate to Linux when old systems become expensive

Linux server migration is best undertaken when existing software can be ported to Linux, old systems are obsolete and customer's are looking to save money by going open source.

  • If you can port your customer's existing software to Linux, or retain software that is vital to the organization. Heavily customized or proprietary software will be harder to port.
  • When you can provide Linux-inexperienced customers with support and solutions to handle migration pitfalls.
  • When you want to save customers money by implementing a migration strategy from expensive Unix to open source Linux.
  • When Unix systems are aging and need to be migrated anyway.
