Greetings One and All!
We have been tasked to come up with hard evidence to support running the Cloverleaf Integrator (Integrator) on a UNIX platform versus a Windows platform. Currently we run the Integrator on AIX UNIX 5.2, CIS5.3 Rev3 with multiple sites: about 360 interface connections, 56 processes, and doing 110 million messages a month mostly from Epic Systems Bridges interfaces. We have 9 hospitals and numerous clinics, medical centers to service.
Ok… we would like to upgrade to a more powerful box as we anticipate an ever increasing demand on the Integrator to process messages as more medical sites go live with our Epic Systems software. Our top level mangement folks figure that it would be more cost effective to migrate to a Windows server rather than allocate budget dollars for a more robust UNIX server.
So… we need to gather intelligence on the pros and cons of running Cloverleaf Integrator on Windows or UNIX (for us again that is AIX).
Is anyone out there aware of any studies, benchmarks that could help us here? We have a request to Quovadx for any information that they can supply us (Response is pending). Your contributions would be most welcome and no doubt would be of invaluable aid to others who face this issue in the future.
Thanks in advance.
