Can Upgrading UNIX Environment Supercharge the Performance of Applications?



Every year Google releases a slightly tweaked version of Android, and this year also, it has come up with Android Marshmallow, which is being considered the biggest update, released so far by the tech giant. In the meantime, Peach, a newly-launched social network, has already gained the traction of many. Have you ever pondered why this search engine giant keeps changing its old systems, or what’s the use of this new social network Peach when there are already so many in the market, like Facebook, Twitter, and Google+? Well, let me quickly acquaint you with the reality behind it.

The major motif behind launching the upgraded version of an in-effect product/service is to attract more customers. With each passing day, customers’ choices and priorities are getting changed. They envisage for something that can keep them in pace with modernizing world, and also, fulfil their requirement in the most plausible manner. Updating the older systems to a newer one brings more users in. This is one of the top most marketing strategies that every successful business focuses upon. Just to add, a report suggests that bringing smaller-smaller changes to the offerings have a positive impact on human psychology, which can keep them linked to the same product/service for years.

This article highlights some of the major benefits that businesses can gain by upgrading their UNIX environment to Linux server environment:

Cost Savings: Organizations that have shifted their enterprise applications to a RHEL solution have reportedly achieved huge cost savings as RISC to RHEL migration eliminates hefty hardware, software, and manpower costs. A report suggests that it takes around $200, 000 to replace one million dollar UNIX servers. Convenience: Typically, UNIX systems are large, monolithic servers, whereas x86 based architecture is smaller and easy to manage. On top of it, these servers are resizable and scalable, depending upon specific business demands.

Minimum Downtime: Applications that run on Linux servers are less prone to downtime issues when compared to the aforementioned one. Apart from this, RHEL Open Source operating systems are less expensive than proprietary RISC based operating systems, like Solaris, HP, UX, and AIX. It is designed and developed in a way that it can support multiple applications without sacrificing the performance level. RHEL subscription does not include any upfront cost; plus they are not tethered to particular machines.

Therefore, it can be used even on test servers, and then, can be effectively migrated to production servers, whenever required. In addition, you can scale up the performance to meet application requirements and cutback cost incurred on software/hardware procurement and maintenance.

To conclude, migrating to this easy to use and cost-effective Linux environment not only helps a business to improve the performance of its core enterprise applications, but also in bringing down its total cost of ownership (TCO).
