Under zOS, my client processes 1 billion Adabas calls per week against 350G of data. Several development and test databases have proved that the components of the primary Natural/Adabas application will run on a Windows server. Now we are considering re-hosting the production application to Open Systems (Natural for Windows, and Adabas for Windows or Unix/Linux), but we have many questions. Here are a few:
1 Has anyone run this size of (production) load (1G calls; 350G data) on a Windows or Unix/Linux box?
2 Does Adabas take advantage of Windows or Unix/Linux features that benefit performance? If so, are the benefits so great as to simplify our platform selection?
3 What were the compelling reasons for your choice of operating system?
