ABSTRACT:
Linux reliability has come of age. Several major Linux distributions including Novell SUSE, Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Ubuntu scored high in reliability, improved over 2006 uptime statistics and achieved near parity with Unix distributions. Security incidents plagued Windows Server 2003, which saw uptime decrease by roughly 10% during last year. Corporations must continue to adhere to best practices in configuration, management and security to ensure optimal server operating system and application reliability.
