Marcel Hofstetter says in an Oracle Solaris review
Oracle ACE "Solaris " / CEO / Enterprise Consultant at JomaSoft
Solaris includes two virtualization solutions: LDoms for SPARC and Solaris Zones. Both solutions can be combined to create private clouds. Solaris Zones is ideal to separate applications and to migrate from older to current hardware. LDoms is very efficient because it uses the hardware hypervisor of the SPARC servers. Both technologies increase Security, because they separate the applications from each other. Using the Security Compliance Framework we are sure the systems are setup properly View full review »

Aditya Lad says in a Red Hat Linux (RHEL) review
Software Engineer at a security firm with 10,001+ employees
The GUI for network adapters and built-in tools provided by RHEL, such as the Mozilla browser, have been valuable. Since they come built-in, it saves the time of having to install them, and you have everything necessary with the installation itself. There are several tools which Red Hat provides as add-ons such as ReaR (Relax and Recover) which can be used for disaster recovery. View full review »
Stephen Murcott says in an Ubuntu Linux review
System Administrator at a software R&D company with 11-50 employees
The most valuable features of this solution are standardization, visualization, and package management. I also like their videos. Ubuntu is following mainline Linux, and what Ubuntu really does well is packaging it well so that you've got a really turnkey desktop or service solution. Their stuff is pretty good as far as it goes. I've enjoyed using the product because of those things. View full review »
OnyaToochukwu says in a Windows 10 review
CEO/Programmer at Tech Elight
The most valuable feature is the easy assess to most of the settings and features of the PC. Another is that it is more secure because Windows Defender is very efficient and active to detect viruses or trojans that may make the user vulnerable to cybersecurity attacks and other threats.

Daren Ferreira says in an Oracle Solaris review
Infrastructure as a Service Manager
The most valuable features are the Zones, ZFS, UAR, ABEs, pkg and the entire network stack. I love the way you can create virtual NICs in the local zones and maintain all of your zpools in that local zone as well. The ability to use ABEs as a back-out for changes is invaluable. The Unified archives for system-builds and OS backups, to be used in the event of a major issue, has also served us well. This capability has saved us countless hours of potential downtime during our change windows, as we were able to recover a host within five minutes. View full review »

District Technology at a K-12 educational company or school with 1,001-5,000 employees
It has minimal updates compared to other distributions. We like the idea of long-term support. CentOS gives us a peace of mind when it comes to updates. It's also a bonus that most of our vendor supported hardware/software is built with CentOS under the hood, allowing us to stay in the Fedora ecosystem. View full review »
