Platforms an eBusiness Can Implement - A Brief on Sun Technologies
(Page 5 of 5 )
If I need to consider only Sun Technologies as a part of implementation, I would have to go with the following type of environment:
Operating System, Firewall - Sun Solaris (is also quite secured as it is based on Unix environment)
Database - not supported yet
Web Development - JSP, Servlets
Middle tier development - EJB using J2EE (with Sun System Application Server or WebSphere or WebLogic etc)
Mail Server - not supported yet
SOA (Service Oriented Architecture) - Java Web Services
Mobile development- J2ME
Enterprise Content Management - not supported yet
Ware House or Mining - not supported yet
Virtualization - supported
Apart from all of the above, Sun provides reliable and highly efficient hardware to meet any requirements of enterprise deployments. All the software components (Java Platform) are fully optimized to the hardware they provide. The support for the hardware and troubleshooting can easily be considered excellent.
Even though Sun doesn't have its own database product, Oracle database together with Java platform has proved its efficiency from all corners of implementation. So, even now, apart from Sun products, we still need to buy some non-Sun products as well.
I didn't touch some of other core technical issues at this point, especially hardware. It is always better to combine all of the three platforms (whereever possible architecturally) and use them efficiently and logically. This would help you to invest in achieving high security and reliability. I am not biased against any of the above options, and also not at a zealot of any of the above. But, I love to implement "integration" wherever and whenever possible. Finally, the best platform for eBusiness is integration between several platforms.
I expect to receive lot of (positive and negative) feeback from some readers, especially those who don't wish to cosider this approach. I am still ready to accept (and even learn from) all of your comments or feedback at firstname.lastname@example.org or the purple "discussion" link above and below this article.
