RedHat Enterprise Server 6.0

Red Hat Enterprise Linux 
for Servers
Security, reliability, and control for the Datacenter
The platform for mission-critical computing
Every day, millions of dollars in trades, purchases, and analysis are generated on systems running Red Hat Enterprise Linux. With support for every major hardware platform and thousands of commercial and custom applications, Red Hat Enterprise Linux has become the global standard for enterprise datacenters.
In this time of massive and disruptive technological change, Red Hat Enterprise Linux provides businesses with the stability and flexibility they need to not only survive, but to thrive, as they transition to the next generation of IT computing.
Benefits of Red Hat Enterprise Linux
A trusted datacenter platform
Red Hat Enterprise Linux is the foundation of a long-term IT strategy, supporting all leading hardware architectures with compatibility across releases and including a seven-year update and support lifecycle (optionally extendable to ten years). Modular, flexible, robust architecture and management tools offer more control and scalability, and a portfolio of Add-On options enhance infrastructure and application availability.
Application performance, scalability, and security
New standards in multi-core and virtual systems require a platform that can manage complexity — scaling up or out to meet business needs. Red Hat Enterprise Linux has proven performance on systems with over a hundred cores and terabytes of memory, making it suitable for the largest enterprise application deployments. With technology designed specifically for monitoring, managing, and securing applications, Red Hat Enterprise Linux is an ideal guest on any of the major virtualization platforms.
Delivers flexibility and control across IT infrastructures
Red Hat Enterprise Linux allows businesses to deploy physical, virtual, and cloud computing within their datacenters. Red Hat technologies span all environments, removing barriers, increasing efficiency, and leveraging employee skills. Integrated virtualization allows physical and virtual deployments to interoperate, while fine-grained control of compute resources (e.g., CPU, memory, networking, and I/O) allows businesses to manage application and guest service-level agreements (SLAs). Power management features reduce datacenter carbon footprint, and enhanced interoperability simplifies integration into Microsoft Windows Active Directory environments.

Server Variants
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server is a versatile platform that can be deployed on physical systems, as a guest on the major hypervisors, or in the cloud.
Hardware partners, ISVs, and customers depend on the stability of the Red Hat Enterprise Linux core system infrastructure, provided by published interfaces (kABI, core libraries, and service infrastructure) that Red Hat assures through and across releases. Supported hardware ranges from a single socket to the largest systems produced by our partners. Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server also includes a complete LAMP stack (Apache/Tomcat, PHP/Perl/Python, MySQL/PostgreSQL), file and print services (NFS, CIFS/SMB, CUPS), and authentication services (openldap, kerberos5).
Subscriptions are available with flexible guest entitlements of one, four, or unlimited guests per physical host.

Microsoft Online Services: SharePoint 2010

SharePoint is one of the most widely adopted collaboration and business productivity software services worldwide. Additionally, cloud-hosted environments top the list of technology trends that pique the interest of business decision makers.
With SharePoint and Cloud environments already having such a commanding presence in the business world, it just makes sense to combine forces into one great service that satisfies each: Cloud-hosted SharePoint from Microsoft Online Services.
SharePoint is available from Microsoft Online Services for 3.81€ per user per month as a standalone service or as a part of the BPOS Suite of Services for 7.26€ per user per month.
SharePoint Online is also available in the 20-seats free trial from the Microsoft Online Services Business Productivity Online Standard Suite.

What does SharePoint Online offer for business?
Many of the business productivity and collaboration services offered in SharePoint Server are also available from SharePoint Online. But aside from cost savings, the benefits that SharePoint Online brings to the table are unique for business. Some of the top improvements businesses will notice when switching to SharePoint Online include:

  • ·      Free upgrades to all future versions of SharePoint, with all upgrade versions automatically installed and deployed in the Microsoft cloud.
  • ·      Microsoft-hosted servers have a 99.9% uptime guarantee and are continuously monitored by Microsoft.
  • ·      Less expensive cost of migration than with traditional SharePoint data migration.

While SharePoint Online Standard does offer most of the services provided by SharePoint Server, some of the exceptions that SharePoint Online does not offer include Public Folders, which currently not allowed in the Cloud-hosted environment. To determine if SharePoint Online is a right fit for your organization, below are table comparing the different features offered by SharePoint Online vs. other SharePoint options.

First steps in becoming Exadata Specialized

I passed the first and second  assessment after some training for Oracle Exadata Sales Specialist. It is an important start to start a successful and highly skilled Linux and Unix based Oracle Practice.  I hope there will be soon enough opportunities for me to start selling and implementing these machines. There are two options in machine choice X2-2 and X2-8. Exadata X2-2 is meant for Data Warehousing and OLTP, and Exadata X2-8 is a high end OLTP & Consolidation Machine.  Both are really state of the art server racks with infiniband technology. You can't get better and faster and more resilient at the moment for that money. Value for money is really an other key issue here. You sit on the first row with speed, performance, reliability and security with these ExaData machines.
