Certification ..??
 
Hi Guys

Which flavour (among AIX, Solaris n RHEL) is having high market demand & good chance of growth.

Any other Suggestion are welcome


Thanks in advance....
Nandu.

Well, AIX and Solaris are NOT Linux. And the 'chance of growth' for any of them is going to depend on where you are, and what you're trying to do. Lots of manufacturing centers use Solaris for production-line control, while some banks prefer AIX, and other shops may decide Linux is better. The best suggestion would be to actually learn the OS, and not focus on getting a 'certification' in any one thing until you figure out what you want to do.

Also, in my opinion, certifications are pretty meaningless.

I work as a trainee in an Organization.

I work with many servers daily which were mostly Solaris & AIX.

I need to do some certification by end of the year to improve my ratings...?

A number of points:
This is posted in the sub-forum about the Linux from Scratch distro/distro kit (whichever is the correct term); if the question has anything at all to do with LFS, I've missed it.

While agreeing with that, some employers do pay higher for people with certs. Is that your situation, and if it is, what certs would your employer consider as useful? That would be a clue.

And, for Enterprise Linux Distros, in the US RHEL (and dervatives) is the clear leader in market share, where in Europe the situation between RHEL and SLES/SLES is a lot closer. I don't know how that would split where you are; maybe you would know.

My impression is that Solaris has had quite a respectable market share, in the mainstream, but there is little or no growth in market share if that is what you mean (maybe you mean personal growth, which would be something else entirely).

AIX has always struck me as being more niche, which may or may not be an issue, depending on whether you are interested in the niche in which AIX plays well.

I reported this to be moved shortly after it was posted, no response yet. Patience; Guess we need to have some :)

Neither of which are Linux.

Ok, again, neither Solaris or AIX are Linux, and you're asking which is 'better'. The answer is again, none are better/worse, and the opportunities for growth again depend on where you are, and your company. Choose any one, and get a certification if you want to. Or, get certified in all three...it's up to you.

If you're worried about your 'ratings' at the company where you work, try learning what's available to you, and show your employer that you're learning, and are eager to work. Having a certification is pointless, unless you actually DO the work. And if you ARE doing the work, your employer won't CARE that you don't have a certification...they'll know they can trust you, and your work, and treat your accordingly.

Fill out the fields here and check out for yourself:

Regulars on LQ won't be probably able to guide you on
"high market demand" and "growth chance" issues, reason
being that they aren't where you are.
They are in countries different than yours.
