IDC Research on Unix Customers' Attitude to Migration
Editor:- March 23, 2006 - Microsoft today published an IDC report which looked at issues related to Unix migration.

IDC interviewed 400 Unix/RISC customers about their attitudes to migration. The average interview time was 30 minutes. It makes very interesting reading. The report says Sun is the main target for migration and the clock is ticking. Here are some extracts...

"Sun Solaris continues to be the most popular Unix variant for Unix servers running Web infrastructure. While this is not surprising given the dot-com success that Sun enjoyed in the late 1990s and into 2000, it does continue to represent a challenge for Sun because these workloads have been frequent targets for migration over the past five years."

"IDC believes that the server life-cycle issues are driving much of this change, because the systems in the Unix installed base have aged in recent years, and this is compounded by the fact that many dot-com era installations with Web enablement of business workloads, are coming of age and will require replacement. In addition, many Unix/RISC servers were deployed in preparation for Y2K and many of these systems are now nearing the end of their useful life cycle." the article (pdf), ...IDC profile, Solaris Migration Resources
