Linux Burrows Deeper Into the Enterprise

Filed under
SUSE

Server-side Linux has been pushing into the enterprise for some years now, and 42 percent of respondents to a survey conducted on behalf of Linux vendor SUSE said it was either their primary server OS or one of their top server platforms.

Perhaps more importantly, Linux is extending its reach beyond its traditional areas of supercomputing, Web servers, Internet hosting and application development to mainstream computing environments ranging from departmental servers to datacenter server clusters.

"The top three reasons people are switching to Linux are they get better performance for a lower cost; they reduce their risk of vendor lock-in; and innovation -- it helps mitigate the risk of technology obsolescence," Kim Kerry, director of solutions marketing at SUSE, told LinuxInsider.
