NetXMS OS Platform
« on: January 29, 2012, 05:01:25 pm »

Hello All,

I am a windows sys admin but i always loved operating systems.
before i discovered NetXMS i have used OpenSUSE as my laptop OS just not to forget how to use Linux but when i came across NetXMS i have decided to install it both on windows and linux.
Now, I am facing a question to which i could not find a satisfying answer saying, which linux distro is best for enterprise and what others are commonly using in the IT industry for software like NetXMS or should i stick with windows.

Appriciate the info
Kind Regards,
Lindeamon

Hi!

I use Debian for production installation in a company I'm working for. It was chosen mainly because I personally like Debian and Ubuntu distros and has good experience working with them. PostgreSQL is used as a backend database.

Best regards,
Victor

Hi All,

I do not want to open another poll for that but i have another question.
based on your Deployments, Do you use X Windows on your linux installations ?

Kind Regards,
Lindeamon

Hi.
I have been working with CentOS systems over the past 5 years.
CentOS is a linux distribution built on the RedHat Enterprise Source RPMs. It's a clone of an enterprise linux distribution, RHEL which means it's very stable, well tested and for the most part on the ball with security patches.
With CentOS you will get an OS with updates available for more than one year. With this Linux distribution you will have five years of guaranteed available updates, and guaranteed upgradeability to CentOS 6 once it becomes available and CentOS 5 is EOLed (End Of Life).
CentOS systems may be working for many months without the slightest degradation.
CentOS is the only free enterprise operating system.

Best regards.

Most of the servers we have deployed are Debian/Ubuntu, primarily because that is where most of our collective knowledge here resides. That being said we use NetXMS on Ubuntu 16.04. The stability difference between Windows and *nix systems is tremendous. Most of our workstations are on Windows though.

To answer your follow up question, we use all headless (non x-win) systems, except for our 1 Windows Server. I believe, and this will probably spark a fiery debate, that to learn the most from a system, you have to have intimate knowledge of the console. GUI's are great for a lot of things, but the meat-and-potatoes comes from the console/ssh sessions.

Sorry to bump an old post.  :)
