Quotes From Members

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 work is now faster and more efficient because most of the running programs do not crash during the run stage, like the previous version we were using for work.""The latest versions of the solution have increased their level of stability. It's quite good now.""The solution is scalable. If an organization needs to expand it out, they shouldn't run into issues doing so.""Microsoft technology is very simple and user friendly.""It is easy to operate and perform any tasks.""In terms of most valuable feature, it has all the features. We have to use the workforce application like Microsoft Office 365. We are dependent on the operating system.""The most valuable features are the interface and the speed of switching between processes.""It offers an easy user experience for our customers."

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 »

"The frequent update of the Operating system is bad because, during each update, most of the programs or applications do not function well.""The solution should offer a bit of an easier integration with authentication methods, like FIDO or FIDO2 authentication with the USB-C. They should try to simplify the process of authenticating the user. Nobody wants to remember thousands of passwords.""The only thing which concerns me is updates. It gets updated often. Sometimes, however, it automatically gets updated. That is an issue. It can happen when you do not want it to be done. It's possible it can start and your files are not saved. They may be open while your laptop enters sleep mode. Then, when you re-open the computer to continue work, it all of a sudden decides to update, destroying your work.""Windows needs improvements made with respect to security because it is still vulnerable.""If you need servers to be deployed in a production environment then you definitely want to look at a different operating system.""In terms of what could be improved, I would say the security patches. The security patches do not come very frequently with the operating systems.""of the problems with Windows 10 is that it hangs when you open multiple programs.""Users should be able to access the system remotely."

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."

"Windows 10 is licensed. It was included with the purchase of my laptop.""For my home computer it's a lifetime license, only purchased once.""I think it is fair. I haven't bought it on my own because our laptops are from the company, and our company pays for it.""Windows 10 came with the computer when I bought it, so it was already licensed."
