Migration from Solaris 10 to Red Hat Enterprise Linux

Posted 11-23-2011 at 11:15 PM by bits45

We've been using Solaris 10 on Sparc and x86 for years. With the recent Oracle takeover and the lack of OSS movement (updates) from Sun (too little, too late), we've been moving all of our Apache and MySQL servers to RHEL 5.7. In most cases we've stayed on the same exact Egenera Nehalem pBlades and used the same SAN storage. So all the hardware is exactly the same. The speed increase comparison between Solaris 10 and RHEL has been nothing short of amazing. Seems like everything goes faster - from simple administration tasks to serving web pages and DB data.

I thought I'd miss Solaris, but the fact is I only miss ZFS's simplicity to manage. I must say, it's been quite fun and it's put the "spirit" of SysAdmins back in me.

Now to tackle those large pools of storage for my file servers.

Thanks Linux!
