"Stable unix system for production software"

What do you like best?

Same or near same commands like in simple Unix linux system. It has good support of HP Software command. Stable, fast, low memory use. It has kernel configurable parameters, some parameters do not need reboot of the system. It can be used with X graphical interface. It can work without rebooting for monthes and even years. you can use bash scripts for automatization of your work. Good support and frequent updates of new Java packets for that system. Most of things can be repeated in the linux operating system software with the same packets and versions of Java, special software etc.

What do you dislike?

I do not like help system integrated in the hp-ux. And I want to have pre-installed graphical system with simple off/on it for better performance. Also I want more custom libraries of packets, not only 10-15 types, but 100-150. Now I need to manually configurate hundreds of packets and manually install/uninstall them. Need special hardware for running that system, cant use simple computers for test needs, cant create virtual machine in the common servers or in the desktop computers, need special architecture and special processors for that system for 99-100% repeatable actions in the same test server.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Need special administrator for that system, or administrator for both types - linux and hp-ux. Better use special parameters of kernel configuration for your needs. Test for stability, performance of your software with different parameters, and use vendor recommendation of parameters if you do not have enough resources for full stability and performance tests.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Launching HP IUM software in the HP-UX 11.21 system.

"Friendly in nature , stable ,have like unix"

What do you like best?

Easy to learn

User friendly

common server used

Application server

Battery utilization

What do you dislike?

Too limited in options and finding it really hard to sustain with the comparators .

Too tightly controlled . Installing softwares are P.I.T.A.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Strongly recommended to others , as it is having 24/7 supply chain .

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Recommended to run ERP systems in it.Also it is helpful to run the production, staging and test environments for a client's java app.

As everyone knows , Windows useds most power as it is on GPU but on Hp Unix it is grater power saver compare to windows .I think shifting all the system from windows to unix is so much beneficial in terms of money .

What Operating System solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Stable, performing, up to date, easy to learn and user friendly Unix flavor."

What do you like best?

1. Stability. It's the biggest advantage I see here as it is every server goal.

2. Performance. Unix AIX is best at tuning the kernel hence best performance is being received.

3. Crash proof. This operating system is crash-proof as I observed.

4. Modern and up to date with the time. It is currently credited with leadership in integrated mission-critical virtualization, observed performance, high availability and manageability.

5. User friendly. I feel that hpux is more user friendly compared to other flavors.

6. Easy to Learn. HP Unix is very easy to learn compared to complex solaris commands.

7. It provides solid user security via its account validation and authentication.

8. It is true multi-user, multitasking, protected memory operation, while using a minimal amount of memory.

9. In this Unix, everything is a file, including the terminal and all devices, which simplifies input/output operations.

10. You are provided with a variety of utilities and commands that are specially designed to perform specific tasks. With a properly stocked toolbox, it can handle complex tasks flawlessly.

What do you dislike?

1. Not all HP hardware can run this OS. They are hardware specific either to be PA-RISC and Integrity architecture.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If it is suitable to your business use case then this Unix flavor rocks. Go ahead and reap the benefits of this great investment.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

1. We use this application for one of the world's leading investment bank customer who is our client. It is crash free, user friendly and lots of scripting, manipulation are allowed.

2. Plug n Play application. HP Unix is plug and play. Devices getting configured and added automatically in many cases. In other unix flavors, even to install a hard disk you should follow a complicated procedure.

Apart from that, I could found below applications.

3. Real life application. The US Navy used a significant number of HP-UX run computers on it's ships.

"HP ux is a reliable OS for our ERP solutions"

What do you like best?

We use HP ux to run our ERP system, Infor Lawson. Best part about it is the stability. We never have to take unexpected down times for OS issues. Everything runs like clock work from the OS level which is extremely important when dealing with a 24/7 supply chain.

What do you dislike?

I dont have any major complaints about the OS. As with any unix environment, it takes some getting used to when you come from a Windows world. Whenever I do have to telnet into the system, everything works as it should

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would recommend it from a stability standpoint. We have no issues at all and it provides us with a 24/7 platform for our ERP environment

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are using HP ux to provide a stable ERP environment to our customers in supply chain, HR, payroll, and finance. The benefits to this stable environment are the ability to provide a platform that operates virtually 24/7 for our back office areas to do what they need to do

"HP-UX"

What do you like best?

It was a good unix 10 years ago when people used unix. Now it's time to move to Centos or Ubuntu Linux. All the newest tools are on linux.

It has all the basic unix utilities and shell you expect.

What do you dislike?

HP UX is old and ready to be retired. Not sure HP will support this for much longer. Time to move to Linux.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Don't use it, it's old and not really well supported. Move to a Linux like Centos or Ubuntu.timspann

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Running enterprise application and COTS products on UNIX.

"Extreamely stable and crash proof"

What do you like best?

Basic learning is sufficient to start off and even bring expertise in the price of work. Still stand as a first base and a startup standard for all the biggest known technologies now or ever. Extreamely stable and makes it after all worth the usage.

What do you dislike?

Too limited in options and finding it really hard to sustain with the comparators. Too tedious sometimes.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Integration with new technologies is simple and basic. Though the options might turn out to be limited but a great way to start and steady set up.

"HPUX Review"

What do you like best?

I like that it's a unix core based of of the old BSD core. It has a lot of solid features just like all of the other Unix distros out there and it's very very very solid for production environments.

What do you dislike?

It's too tightly controlled, software install are also a P.I.T.A.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Don't. Use Linux on a cloud platform. Especially something Docker enabled.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It runs the production, staging and test environments for a client's java app.

"Good OS with less than great support"

What do you like best?

I honestly like that it is rock-solid when it works; it's reliable, and it gets the job done.

What do you dislike?

HP support, to put it bluntly. Getting GOOD support for HP/UX is nearly impossible now, with how they're trying to push users to their newer hardware/software platforms.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Legacy code is the biggest problem... Having legacy code that is purely dependent on hardware architectures that haven't had official support for years.

"Extremely Stable Unix OS"

What do you like best?

HPUX is extremely stable, in all my years of using it I have only once seen an actual OS related issue.

What do you dislike?

If you are a linux user you need to install extras to get some of the basic linux commands you are used to.

Recommendations to others considering the product

HPUX is not cheap, but for stability and the best use of raw disks, I would recommend this OS.
