This book presents an established methodology for transitioning the people, processes, and technologies in IT environments to the Solaris(TM) Operating System. It steps you through the various phases of the migration process, using detailed case studies to illustrate the benefits, costs, and requirements associated with a migration project. While this book focuses on UNIX server migrations, the methodology and best practices presented apply for most migrations to the Solaris environment. They can be used for projects ranging from the smallest data conversion to the largest legacy migration.
