Likelihood to Recommend

Oracle Solaris

For running Oracle databases, Solaris can't be beat. Leveraging Zones allows for virtualization out of the box. In addition, using zones with clustering can make migrating from Solaris 10 to 11 very easy. Finally, in an enterprise environment that requires 24/7 up-time and meeting SLA's, Solaris is a viable and robust choice.

Alternatives Considered

Oracle Solaris

We also use Linux in our shop. Linux is capable, and a very good OS. Solaris was chosen because we can afford it. Again Linux is capable, but Linux is a disruptive technology i.e. it is a "good enough" Unix.
