Source: Sun Microsystems
The process of choosing an operating system to use for development and deployment is a complex one, which requires assessing both today's needs as well as forecasting technology and business trends for the future. Change is accelerating at the edges of the World Wide Web, as more Web 2.0 and Software as a Service (SaaS) solutions become common, requiring the utmost in agility and efficiency. Simultaneously, the demands of established business data centers require technology to minimize costs while maintaining reliability. Sun Microsystems' Solaris 10 operating system and its counterpart, the OpenSolaris operating system, when deployed on Intel Corporation's Xeon processor-based servers, become a great choice for both leading edge applications and the established enterprise data center.
