Windows to Linux Migration Services
Linux based operating systems have lower cost of ownership compared to Windows based systems. Many organizations are adopting Linux as the preferred choice for their entire IT infrastructure including Desktops, Servers and Applications. During this adoption, migration of your IT infrastructure from Windows based systems to Linux based systems can be a challenge. Altnix specializes in migrating legacy Windows based systems to Linux system and other open source equivalent products.
- Reduced Cost of Ownership: Linux based systems have usually lower costs since most Linux operating systems don’t have license cost. Migrating from Windows to Linux immediately eliminates both upfront and recurring license costs.
- Open Source Flexibility: In addition to the operating system, customers can migrate from Windows based applications to Open Source applications such as Zimbra Mail, Open Source Authentication Framework, and Open Source ERP products, which in turn leads to flexibility for customer when working with these products.
- Future Planning Made Easy: Linux and other open source products are supported by a wide community of active developers and partners that anticipate the need of the future and incorporate feature into their code without any vendor specific code lock-in. Hence making quick changes to your IT infrastructure roadmap is easy. You don’t have to wait for the vendor to release a specific feature, you can write your own code if needed!
