Port your Solaris applications to PowerLinux and reap the benefits:
- Meet and exceed client demands and save on precious technical resources and equipment at the same time. Linux® runs on almost every server platform today, including IBM and others.
- Aspire to a simpler, more cost-efficient development, testing, and support operation. Standards such as the Linux Standard Base are helping ensure binary portability across Linux distributions and the source code level across hardware platforms.
- Reach diverse markets with a single port. Most Linux applications can be written for full binary compatibility across all of the IBM POWER processor-based servers. Red Hat and Novell SUSE each provide a single Linux distribution for POWER - Red Hat Enterprise Linux and SUSE LINUX Enterprise Server for IBM POWER - further testament to the compatibility among the POWER and PowerPC 970 processor-based server families.
The resources in this document are organized into the general phases that you will typically go through when you port your application: Prepare, Implement and Market.
Follow this roadmap to make porting your Solaris application to PowerLinux a straightforward and efficient process.
