Powerful with high availability and very stable

What is our primary use case?

Clients mainly use the solution as a database operating system in many environments. Most who are using it are financial institutions, telecoms, or companies in the energy sector.

Pros and Cons

  • "Oracle Solaris is great due to the fact that it actually is meant for high-end servers."
  • "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."

What other advice do I have?

In our company, we don't use Oracle Solaris. As a person, I was employed as a Solaris System Administrator. I'm just a consultant. We don't use Oracle Solaris, because we're not big enough to use the solution ourselves. Overall, I'd rate the solution nine out of ten. I would highly recommend Oracle Solaris. It's a stable operating system and it's been around for a long time. If you're planning to have an Oracle Database, the best operating system for the Oracle Database is Oracle Solaris. If anybody is implementing a new solution or a new environment and thinks of putting in Oracle Database…

Good interface and pretty stable but the initial setup can be difficult

What is our primary use case?

I primarily use it in my day to day work to test my products. There are a lot of open-source tools on the market, and I need this product to have something to deploy them on.

Pros and Cons

  • "They have provided a new interface, which is great."
  • "You need a lot of bandwidth during the initial setup in order to pull from the repository. Without good bandwidth, you'll get cut off and the implementation will fail."

What other advice do I have?

I highly recommend the solution. It's very popular among developers. It's worked quite well for us. Of course, solutions like Red Hat and CentOS also have good capabilities. For us, however, Unbuntu is the best. Overall, I'd rate the solution seven out of ten. It offers me basically everything I need and has worked well for our team.

Easy to use, simple to set up, and offers good stability

What is our primary use case?

We primarily use the solution for our different applications.

Pros and Cons

  • "The solution is easy to learn. It doesn't take much training."
  • "The system needs to offer better integration capabilities."

What other advice do I have?

We're just a Windows customer. We don't have a business relationship with the company. We're using the latest version of the solution. I'd recommend the solution to other companies. Overall, from one to ten, I'd rate this product at a nine.

Easy to install, stable and scalable, with good support

What is our primary use case?

We use this solution internally to develop our systems. Our developers work in another section to develop the data center. We provide services to the developers and other business units.

Pros and Cons

  • "The good thing about Oracle Linux is that it's free, as long as you don't want support."
  • "They should increase security."

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend this solution to others. I would rate Oracle Linux and eight out of ten.

User-friendly and is updated regularly, but the security needs to be improved

What is our primary use case?

We are a service company and we use a variety of products that are guided by the clients' requirements. Windows 10 is one of the operating systems that we use for this.

Pros and Cons

  • "It is easy to operate and perform any tasks."
  • "If you need servers to be deployed in a production environment then you definitely want to look at a different operating system."

What other advice do I have?

They have been evolving Windows 10 since it was released. Every time we open it, there is something new. It used to be that email and other utilities were on the system, but now they are cloud-based. Whether the older or newer interfaces are better, or not, doesn't matter because you get used to it and move along. In summary, Windows 10 is a good operating system and I recommend it. I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.
