Gabriel Consulting Group published two whitepapers based on the results of its most recent UNIX Vendor Preference Survey. The annual survey asks IT professionals to share insights on data center challenges, industry trends, and technology and support solutions from three major UNIX server vendors.
HP Nails Availability and Stability
Based on the 2010-2011 UNIX user preference study, Gabriel Consulting Group concludes that commercial Unix systems have become much more powerful and sophisticated over the last decade – to the point where they’ve become the platform of choice for mission critical workloads that need the high availability and scalability that these systems offer. When we asked about Unix availability and stability in our latest annual survey of data centers that use commercial Unix, Hewlett-Packard continued to shine.
Gabriel notes mission-critical UNIX categories where HP-UX 11i outscored AIX and Oracle, including Observed Performance, Observed Availability, Real-World Manageability, and Operating System Quality.
HP Aims for the Clouds
Gabriel Consulting also notes that Cloud computing is getting a huge amount of industry attention these days. This report discusses the critical role virtualization and systems management will play in cloud computing, focusing on what HP is bringing to the table in cloud and how their consolidated management might give a leg up on competitors.
Note: Gabriel survey respondents reside primarily in the US, with about one-third residing in Europe.
