Legacy Migration

UNIX Migration

Infinite makes an excellent choice for businesses seeking to migrate their UNIX applications.

Infinite has developed toolsets for decades for HP-UX, AIX and Solaris. We also implemented many enterprise applications on these platforms and know them very well. We have, however, seen a strong trend whereby our clients have asked us to migrate their UNIX applications to Linux. There is a definite trend toward Open Source and the ability to execute on industry standard X86 hardware. In many instances these decisions are cost-driven and in others more technology-oriented.

Over the last few years virtualization technology at the server level and at the storage level have become ubiquitous. This technology has dramatically reduced costs and increased utilization. At first, the most obvious target for this technology was the broad proliferation of Intel-based servers running Windows in many companies. These have been greatly consolidated using virtualization technology and have become much more manageable and cost-effective. Now it is time for the data center to see this level of efficiency.

By migrating legacy UNIX applications to Linux, the virtualization technology is built in. Formerly expensive UNIX tools for High Availability have been made obsolete because it's a part of Linux and its virtualization toolset. Linux can run on very powerful industry standard X86 servers that outperform and are dramatically less expensive than the proprietary hardware necessary to execute proprietary UNIX applications.

Because of the benefits to migrating from UNIX to Linux and Infinite's unique expertise in migrating legacy applications, Infinite makes an excellent choice for businesses seeking to migrate their UNIX applications.
