How to make a smooth transition to Red Hat LINUX as a Solaris Admin

When Oracle acquired Sun, not only did the entire industry raise its eyebrows but questions were also raised about the SPARC (Scalable Processor Architecture) platform heritage. This does not include other questions that were raised about the viability of the server in the future.

sun oracleWhether Oracle lives up to its word regarding embracing the new platform with all its promise of future investment and pool of expertise or not is immaterial. Many of its customers are gradually looking to or already moving to alternate options. Those that have not yet will soon follow suit.

Red Hat Enterprise LINUX is obviously the other big name in cloud based operating systems. But the truth is most of the administrators in the industry are already well versed in Sun's Solaris OS. What if their company has already shifted to LINUX services? Well, it's not that difficult for expert administrators to get used to Red Hat Enterprise LINUX but for those that find it tedious, Red Hat does have a course that preps the admin moving from Solaris to Red Hat Enterprise LINUX.

As opposed to Solaris from Oracle, Red Hat offers an easier, risk-free, optimum-value alternate route. Red Hat Enterprise LINUX has been expertly, for a while now, replacing traditional UNIX based workloads across the offices greatly reducing costs of operation and providing hardware seller neutrality and higher flexibility for consumers and clients, both big and small across the IT globe.

When you are shifting platforms, it's crucial to make sure that your IT experts have the technical skills and expertise to enhance their system's performance and maintain the same efficiency across the whole system. Red Hat Enterprise LINUX, custom designed for Solaris operators, is a course that quickly  covers many of the practical, on-the-job skills needed in their totality when shifting from Solaris to Red Hat Enterprise LINUX.

This course emphasizes the differences between both the Solaris and LINUX systems, covering Red Hat equivalents to Solaris specific terminologies and technologies, like applying of software patches, automatic deployment using Kickstart, and using high-end file-system features. Also, the course highlights how to use the Red Hat Network to successfully manage, maintain and operate your system environment.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things').

IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
