UNIX is a computer operating system originally developed in the 1960s and 1970s by a group of AT&T employees at Bell Labs including Ken Thompson, Dennis Ritchie, and Douglas McIlroy. Today's Unix systems are split into various branches, developed over time by AT&T, several other commercial vendors, as well as several non-profit organizations.
Learn how your organization can deliver self-service application provisioning, flexible and standardized application deployments, and integrated management, without losing control or radically change existing management and development processes.
The Red Hat Cloud Quickstart consulting engagement leverages Red Hat's Cloud Foundations Reference Architecture Edition One to speed up assessing the viability of a cloud environment for your enterprise, and, if chosen, it can demonstrate a tangible implementation of a private cloud for testing purposes.
Do you have an effective cloud governance plan? This whitepaper guides you through best practices for ensuring your applications and data can safely move between clouds - whether they are private, public or hybrid.
The Nimsoft for Server Monitoring solution supports iSeries AS400, Netware, Linux, Windows, and UNIX from a single, easy-to-use console. The solution monitors core server resources (CPU, memory, disk, event logs, counters, etc.) and enables centralized management of remote processes and services (automated and manual start/restart/stop).
The role of servers in your organization has changed substantially-with their uses, requirements, and complexity all increasing dramatically in recent years. Many of the traditional tools and techniques that worked in the past don't suffice any more. Consequently, server monitoring presents several critical battles in today's demanding environments.
The move from UNIX to Linux makes sense in almost any environment, and now, with today's economic environment and every budget being cut, it makes more sense than ever before. The TCO of the proprietary RISC/UNIX data center is going up. With the ROI of migrating to an open systems platform based on Intel Xeon processors being measured in months, you can become a corporate hero.
This white paper outlines the advantages of WebSphere Portal for System z software and provides essential information to those considering adding Web-facing workloads on their mainframe hardware.

Improving access to core applications and data is just one of many mandates facing IT, along with improving collaboration, reducing administration costs and improving performance. Fortunately, shops running System z have an advantage. You can integrate and enhance your System z assets faster when you use the version 6.1 update to IBM WebSphere Portal on z/OS. Use it to quickly deploy business applications across the enterprise, reduce costs and increase flexibility with workloads centralized on System z.
If you are concerned about the future of your proprietary RISC platform, you need to consider a migration from proprietary to open, from UNIX to Linux while you still have options. You do not want to be forced to pour good money after bad upgrading an obsolete architecture in order simply to stay afloat. See how servers using Intel Xeon processors can offer better performance for a lower price while saving energy.
Linux reliability has come of age. Several major Linux distributions including Novell SUSE, Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Ubuntu scored high in reliability, improved over 2006 uptime statistics and achieved near parity with Unix distributions. Security incidents plagued Windows Server 2003, which saw uptime decrease by roughly 10% during last year. Corporations must continue to adhere to best practices in configuration, management and security to ensure optimal server operating system and application reliability.
Terry Bass, V Series and OpenVOS Product Manager, discusses the arsenal of industry standard and open source applications available today on OpenVOS that make UNIX and Linux programmers immediately productive on the world’s most reliable operating system. VOS is now OPEN.
If you need more than tape backup to protect your critical applications running on AIX operating environments, download this white paper and learn your options and strategies, including how new technologies have significantly improved the recovery time and data recovery points for AIX.
Virtualization is no longer an “emerging” technology. Its potential to increase the efficiency of IT infrastructures has become widely recognized. But key questions are raised in the early stages of virtualization planning: should it be implemented only for new projects, or applied to existing infrastructures? Should opportunities be pursued on a case-by-case basis, or targeted as a broader goal of IT strategy?
For AIX IT departments looking to take the next step in data protection strategies, CDP is an essential consideration. Analysts agree that businesses will be incorporating this strategy in the next few years as part of an integrated solution. CDP enables you to reverse data corruption in a fraction of the time and labor required for recovery from tape.
This white paper provides a basic understanding of the building blocks of IT and business continuity—from understanding the concepts of disaster recovery and information availability to calculating the business impact of downtime and selecting the right software solution.
Downtime and data loss pose intolerable risks to every business today. From IT departments to the Board Room, managers have seen the importance of business uptime and data protection to continued success, productivity and profitability.
When White Pass & Yukon Route Railroad recast its business model, revenues gained speed, but the cumbersome UNIX system labored through long lines of customers, discouraged timely reporting, and imprisoned data behind arcane rules and menus.
