The Unix OS was developed back in the early 70’s by a team of engineers with one goal in mind; create a more interactive user experience.
To some, the Unix OS is the grand-daddy of computer operating systems and to this day still lends itself well to a dedicated server.
What makes the Unix OS special is that it was developed by developers for developers.
This translates into a highly customizable yet user friendly interface that is powerful enough to be installed on a dedicated server. eCommerce sites tend to gravitate to a Unix Server because they can customize the hardware that they choose to run off it.
The hierarchical file system intuitively organizes disk files to user preference and allows them to mount and un-mount files with ease. Though when it comes to commercial deployments not everyone is worried about user friendliness. What about security? We thought you’d never ask.
Performance and Security
Another great thing about the Unix server is that it can withstand sudden bursts of traffic and bandwidth consumption without getting bogged down. This is due in part to a robust firewall that is resilient against DDoS attacks, a common annoyance that can interrupt any online business that relies on a server for eCommerce transactions.
The Unix server is also compatible with most major software, hardware and web app platforms, which makes it a suitable option for business looking to get the most out of a dedicated server. Bottom line: If you are looking for a highly customizable and robust server OS, the Unix server is an ideal option – even for the most discerning.
