Red Hat system administration can require a great deal of time and manpower to execute properly. Routine tasks such as installing the operating system, establishing network connectivity, managing physical storage, and performing basic security administration can tie up a lot of IT time—time that could be better spent on more valuable strategic business initiatives. Plus, complex or critical Red Hat system administration tasks, such as responding to failures, disaster recovery, shells and scripting, and internet working Linux in an intricate network setting with a large user base, can quickly overburden your IT staff.

Ubuntu system administration can become quite complex in spite of Ubuntu being focused on ease of use for the user. Such tasks as virtualization, Windows integration, clustering and high-visibility fail over, and cloud deployment require specialized skills and knowledge to ensure proper execution. Additionally, routine Ubuntu system administration tasks, such as server installation, user management, and server patching,can tie up valuable IT time better spent on business intelligence (BI) and other tasks that boost the bottom line.

Unix system administration can involve a pretty long checklist of tasks—including performing backups, adding users and hardware, monitoring system activity and security, and adding new systems to the network—that must be completed through very precise processes. Otherwise, major problems could arise, including system failures. Scripts can be written to automate some routine tasks, but many tasks will always be extremely time-consuming, such as checking backups to ensure they work.

Solaris system administration has its own unique challenges, as Solaris contains a number of unique features, such as Dynamic Tracing (DTrace), ZFS, and Time Slider. In particular, Solaris 11 introduces features and enhancements in network virtualization, server virtualization, storage, security, and hardware support. It’s not easy to keep up with and implement all of these new and useful aspects of Solaris, especially when tied down by all of the routine tasks involved with Solaris system administration.

Windows system administration is not always quick and easy. Configuration wizards can be confusing, inconvenient, or ineffective for getting the job done exactly how you need it. Command line scripts provide more flexibility and can automate routine tasks—but they do take specialized knowledge or the time to research, implement, troubleshoot, and tweak to accomplish what you’re trying to get done. Reliability and security with Windows are always issues, as well, that can monopolize your precious time. Plus, being constantly tied up with essential but lower-level Windows system administration tasks limits the value of IT; instead, you could be adding more value to the organization by contributing high-level analytics and business intelligence (BI) toward its strategic business initiatives.
