I'm interested in Solaris OS but I know the best way to learn a new OS - slowly and carefully integrate it into the production environment.
The tasks we usually run: virtualization, databases (Oracle), java applications & java web services, other web services (apache/nginx). All systems are loaded pretty high.
Are there tasks where Solaris can be better than Linux/BSD? Why should a system integrator with 10 years experience in Linux/Windows/BSD learn and integrate Solaris? What kind of system - Solaris x86 or Solaris SPARC, are they equal? Please point me to the right decision.
