New Survey Shows that Sun ISVs Choose Solaris for Performance, Availability and Security

Sun recently completed a survey of its ISV community about their use of the Solaris 10 Operating System (OS) in their solutions. The survey identified the most important features and common partner solutions running on the Solaris 10 OS. Partners from countries including the U.S., China, Germany, Italy and Australia participated in the survey.  Some of the key findings include:

 Partners find performance and availability as the most important considerations when choosing an operating system. These aspects directly impact the strength of their own technology offerings.

- Over 80 percent of respondents named performance, availability and security as the most important capabilities when choosing the Solaris 10 OS

- Over 70 percent of respondents also said that networking, data management, interoperability, platform choice and support & services were important in their choice of the Solaris 10 OS

The most commonly offered partner solutions running on the Solaris 10 OS are products that require high availability and uptime.

- The Solaris 10 OS is most often used for Web-based services, data management, application services delivery and infrastructure/data center management

The vast majority of partners are having a positive experience with the Solaris 10 OS and believe it provides value to their businesses.
- 87 percent of participants said that the Solaris 10 OS is a critical or important part of their business
- 91 percent reported having a positive experience with the Solaris 10 OS
- 88 percent deployed the Solaris 10 OS with little to no difficulty

One example of a Sun ISV who has found success with the Solaris 10 OS is Sapotek, a Web 2.0 company providing a free, online desktop. After switching from Linux, the company experienced a six-fold increase in server performance, 99.99% availability and a 50% reduction in hosting costs. A full case study with more information is available here.
