In many cases, Windows is the obvious operating system of choice. Many services however, can be operated without significant additional expenditure on a Linux server system. Since most Linux-based operating system versions do not cause any licensing costs, such a solution can also have a positive impact on the overall cost.
A heterogeneous environment with a mix of Windows and Linux servers is a real alternative at the present time. Bytes & More has been running Debian Linux based servers for services such as e-mail, databases, network drives, Web, FTP and proxy server for several years.
We can evaluate the use of Linux systems for you at any time. Should this prove to be a desired alternative, we are happy to assist you in the transition-less integration of new Linux machines into an existing Windows environment.
