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.
