We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"The ability to manipulate the zones and the files within the zones from a global OS provides us flexibility that no other virtualization can match.""Oracle Solaris is great due to the fact that it actually is meant for high-end servers."

More Oracle Solaris Pros »

"The most valuable feature is that there is an inbuilt HANA firewall.""The main feature is that Linux is flexible to work with for most web-based applications."

Cons
"Oracle customer service is slow at times.""Currently, there are two variants, there's SPARC and there's x86. I would have wanted a scenario where they're all just one product."

More Oracle Solaris Cons »

"We have had trouble integrating Autodesk with the SUSE manager.""I would like to see better functionality for interacting with cloud-based systems."

More SUSE Linux Enterprise Cons »

Pricing and Cost Advice
"There is no OS licensing cost if you use their hardware and purchase hardware maintenance.""If you buy Oracle hardware it's supported free with the hardware. If you're putting it on non-Oracle hardware, that is when you buy the support license, which is also very reasonable. It is $1000 dollars per year, so it's not overly expensive."
