If you were talking to someone whose organization is considering Oracle Solaris, what would you say?
How would you rate it and why? Any other tips or advice?
I would suggest that you test it in your environment. Start small and see what it can do, and reach out to me for any help. You'll see it is a solid solution that more people should adopt.
Best choice for professional workers: I personally suggest Oracle Solaris. I'm happy to test the Oracle Solaris 11.4 Beta.
Use deployment tools for automation and avoid doing everything manually. Deployment tools help to avoid errors and create a standardized environment.
I always recommend Solaris because of its robustness, high availability, scalability, virtualization, excellent support, security and very good hardware.
