Re: HPUX vs other unix based OS

There are so many advantages

1) LVM which is more powerful filesystem tool other than any unix OS

2) Trusted system is the extra feature

3) one of the best virtualization system ( N-par and V-Par ) concept

4) best clustering system ( MC Service guard cluster )

No need buy any third party software or any clustering software or any volume manager like veritas volume and cluster which is very expensive .

Hello Mr. Bedi,

Go for Mission critical OS of hpux and there is no need buy anything and cheaper than any other combinations

Re: HPUX vs other unix based OS

But LVM and MC Service Guard aren't HP-UX exclusive technologies, are they?

About LVM:

(Part of HP-UX since hp-ux version 9)


Service Guard is by HP, what else?

Hope this helps!

Re: HPUX vs other unix based OS

I am not saying that they are exclusive from hpux . I was only giving the answer to vishal that MC OS is the best package other than any other combination.

Re: HPUX vs other unix based OS

Hi

In my opinion these o/s's are pretty equal: HP-UX, Solaris.

I would not put Linux at the same level of these two because it's inferior in many utilities as well as software put together and supported by hobbyists. Why is this a problem? When you pay someone to meet a deadline its met. When you rely on a hobbyist it might be a decade before its complete.

Between HP-UX and Solaris support and architecture are what I look at and at this time I have to put Solaris / Oracle (* I forgot, Sun is now owned by Mr. Ellison *), above HP. Sparc was equal too or superior to PA-Risc, and Itanium is still way inferior.

HP has let thousand's of intelligent, knowledgeable support people go and replaced them with uneducated, illeterates who can't get the job down: Despite have five plus years to get better.

HP support is very, very bad.

One note that I'd like to open up for discussion is a comparison between the PA-Risc CPU and the Itanium. I see reviews and advocates for greater Itanium MIPS and MOPS, but few recall what Risc is and means: Reduced Instruction Set. Which translate into approximately, what a PA-Risc CPU can do in one operation, an Itanium needs a hundred.

When you factor this in, all those rave Itanium speed reviews deflat like a popped balloon, for I have never seen a Itanium box on par to a PA-Risc box, either in speed or reliability.

Number One: Sun / Solaris / Sparc

This is what HP says:

Re: HPUX vs other unix based OS

RedHat is supported by hobbyists? Since when?
