ABSTRACT
The article reports on the initiatives launched by IBM and Red Hat which is designed to lure users of Sun Microsystem's Solaris operating system over to Red Hat Linux. IBM's System and Technology group will begin offering free migration assessments to Solaris customers who want to know more about the costs and benefits of moving from Solaris to Red Hat Linux. Over the past year, IBM's AIX group has sponsored about 500 such assessments for Solaris and HP-UX users, and the company now hopes to complete up to twice as many Linux assessments by year's end, said Scott Handy, vice president of worldwide Linux at IBM. IBM has also been working with 22 financial services software vendors, including Cameron Systems and TimesTen, to help them port their Solaris products over to Linux. To date, these vendors have moved 33 of an anticipated 48 total applications over to Linux, Handy said.
