Sun Migration Solutions Brief
Market disruptions are creating significant risks for existing Sun customers. Then there’s the issue of cost - which is intimately related to being locked into a particular vendor’s architecture. Because of the proprietary nature of the Sun platform, companies that have committed to it have by default limited their choices going forward and made themselves vulnerable to whatever pricing moves Oracle decides to make.
A number of factors are making migration a top-of-mind issue for scores of businesses. Many companies are finding out that migrating to Red Hat ® Enterprise Linux® running on IBM hardware provides the ideal answer to all these challenges.
Lower total cost of ownership (TCO)
More choices due to adherence to industry standards
Broader and deeper partner community
Greater market availability of skilled workers and relatively lower salaries
