Several vendors specialize in Linux-based servers (VA Linux Systems , Cobalt Networks, and Penguin Computing to name a few) . Either of thes e approaches can save you a lot of time and effort in getting a well-configured Linux system up and running . Your main concern is to ensure you have enough in the way of processing power and RAM . A database server optimally should have multiple CPUs, twice the RAM you think you need, the fastest NIC possibl e with a direct connection to the biggest network switch available, and fou r times the disk you need on multiple SCSI controllers !
With the operating system and server in hand, several question s should now be asked : ■ What do you want your database to do ? ■ What specific production environment do you have : small, medium, or large ? ■ Is this a mission-critical application? ■ Will there be support needs for this application? Each of the databases covered in this book has its strengths an d weaknesses . If the decision has not already been made, or even if it has , each should be considered carefully . A little extra thought never hurts before the solution is implemented .
Keep in mind that Linux is a version of UNIX, and you wil l need someone with UNIX or Linux experience to manage it . The interfac e is very similar to Windows but not exactly the same in all cases, but ther e is nothing you can do in Windows that you cannot do in Linux . There are plenty of user-type applications available for Linux that do all the sam e functions, albeit differently at times . The main benefits are the cost, reliability, and security that Linux offers as an operating system, not to mention the steady increase in support from the big players on the block lik e Oracle, Informix, IBM, Sun, Dell, Compaq, and many more .
