Extend Performance in your Web Infrastructure with Red Hat Enterprise Linux
Customers today expect the Internet and their web infrastructure to be reliable, available, and provide good performance. At the same time, many customers are expanding organization-wide efforts to improve capacity and reduce cost. The question then becomes: which platform delivers the high service levels demanded by web infrastructure while increasing consolidation?
This paper provides an overview of several capabilities of the Red Hat® Enterprise Linux® relative to Windows.
- Scalability. This can be horizontal (scale-out with more systems), vertical (scale-up by acquiring more powerful systems), or through virtualization (scale-in). Scale-in has become more critical as larger servers with higher-core-count processors emerge.
- Cost-effectiveness in deployment and operations. This paper provides a comparison of Windows and Red Hat Enterprise Linux for web infrastructure.
- High performance. The web infrastructure must demonstrate solid performance as shown on industry-standard benchmarks. Benchmarks specific to web infrastructure are discussed.
- Rapid evolution to meet changing needs in the open source community. Maintaining competitive advantage requires access to the latest, rapidly evolving technologies.
