How to Buy a Red Hat Linux or Enterprise Database

Purchasing a Red Hat Linux or SUSE Enterprise distribution Č Many businesses, including high end organizations, own a server. A desktop or virtualized server can offer superior performance whether you run a low end business client that requires few additional features, or something like a server-side server at a corporate website or a data center. However, there are other organizations that use Linux or SUSE as their server. Before you embark on the purchasing process, you should consider a few important facts about both of these operating systems:


Stop and pride yourself on being the only business on the block that is using a specific version of SUSE or POSIX.

If your organization has 2-3 users that would like to use SUSE or POSIX, please make sure that they are informed that this would be a group buy.

VIX is a “user-centric” operating system that works with SUSE and is considered to be SUSE’s hardened variation of SUSE, which Because the breadth of production vendors’ support and the usability of their products, you may end up buying Enterprise-grade VIX.

If your company is looking to support tens or hundreds of users then you may want to consider buying the SUSE 10 and are looking at a 2-3 user system.

Some systems, even multiple copies of SUSE, with several different versions will require your support staff to be trained in an EAP environment.

How to compare vendors for Onsite, Offsite, and Hosted

One of the biggest questions that potential users can ask is is, “how much” should I spend to support my release.

Support agreements are all about tricky terms and conditions. We strongly recommend that you consult with an EAP consultant to get expert advise and advice on which SUSE or POSIX version is a good fit for your application or office.

When comparing vendors, one thing to look for is not what is the EAP solution for your organization, but more importantly what is the solution that your own company is using and how well it is going to work. Where should your company be on the maturity and availability scale? Or are you going to drop more money into adding more users or scheduling more complicated builds for the sake of your compliance? Remember that in the end it’s your users that will pay the bills so it is important to build a solution that fits your users’ needs.

Obviously you don’t need issues for hardware that a SUSE or POSIX certified company will not support. If your system comes in an EAP mode, things will not be so straightforward.

If you are trying to add on another user and the SUSE or POSIX company only supports servers on a single flavor, then that coverage ends with the other company. We would highly recommend that you find another solution if your team is not using regular Enterprise SUSE or SUSE 10.

By carefully analyzing all of these points, you will be at least one step ahead of your pricing competition… again.

A final word… we cannot guarantee any role that we design for your organization. However, we can promise to meet your increased reliability goals where your current support infrastructure currently exists. If you have any questions, please feel free to consult one of our many experts that can answer your questions as quickly and efficiently as possible.
