Platforms

Platforms are hardware and/or software architectures. The term originally dealt with only hardware, and it is still used to refer to a CPU model or computer family. For example, the x86 PC is the world's largest hardware platform. Very often, the term refers to an operating system, and the hardware is implied.

Linux reliability has come of age. Several major Linux distributions including Novell SUSE, Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Ubuntu scored high in reliability, improved over 2006 uptime statistics and achieved near parity with Unix distributions. Security incidents plagued Windows Server 2003, which saw uptime decrease by roughly 10% during last year. Corporations must continue to adhere to best practices in configuration, management and security to ensure optimal server operating system and application reliability.
