Rethinking Unix? Think Again

HP has been in the Unix space for many years. In this webcast Ken Surplice, BCS Product Manager – EMEA, discusses how evaluating platform costs may be a smokescreen and offers some straightforward advice for data center operators. The key to his discussion – Unix has new economies that need to be considered, but what isn’t new is its proven technology.

Ken argues that Unix offers, resiliency, stability and predictability, dynamic optimization and simplified management. Also provides case studies comparing Unix to Linix that offer TCO saving by up to 20%, by reducing mandatory updates by 50%, and downtime costs by up to 70%.
