Linux Migration Services

Classic distributions

Debian: A Linux distribution that focuses on stability and compatibility, suitable for servers and advanced users. It underpins ubuntu and is behind most of the internet services we know thanks to its huge software repositories, security and advanced community support.

Ubuntu: One of the most popular and easy to use distributions, suitable for beginners, home and corporate users. It offers a large amount of pre-installed software and an intuitive user interface.

Mint: A Linux distribution that focuses on ease of use and compatibility with older hardware, suitable for users looking for a comfortable desktop experience. It offers a large amount of pre-installed software and an intuitive user interface.

CentOS: It is a stability and security oriented Linux distribution, suitable for servers and enterprise environments. It offers a wealth of management tools and a focus on security. Following the purchase of Red Hat by IBM, it has been renamed CentOS Stream.

Fedora: It is a Linux distribution oriented to innovation and development, suitable for advanced users and developers derived from CentOS. It offers a wealth of development tools and advanced technologies.

New distributions

Rocky Linux is a Linux distribution that aims to be a direct replacement for CentOS, with a focus on compatibility and backwards compatibility with existing CentOS packages and tools. It focuses on stability, security and compatibility, and is a good choice for enterprise and server environments.

Alma Linux is a Linux distribution that focuses on compatibility and stability, with a focus on security and privacy. It is designed as a direct replacement for CentOS, and offers a wealth of security and privacy tools, as well as a wide selection of packages and software. It is a good choice for enterprise and server environments.

Both Rocky Linux and Alma Linux are good alternatives to CentOS, and are worth considering if you are looking for a stable and secure Linux distribution for your business or server needs if you don’t want to use CentOS Stream because it is more unstable and you don’t want to get the support offered by Red Hat (see below).or apply for one of their free programs)

4 good reasons to switch to GNU/Linux from Windows

  1. Security: Linux is a very secure operating system, with a community of developers constantly monitoring and correcting possible vulnerabilities in the code.
  2. Customization: Linux is highly customizable, which means you can tweak it to meet your exact needs.
  3. Costs: Linux is an open source operating system, which means it is free to download and use.
  4. Interface: There are many different Linux distributions available, with easy-to-use graphical user interface that is accessible to users with different levels of experience or skill.

Our methodology

Phase 1: Requirements analysis and planning

  • Gathering information on current systems and business requirements.
  • Identification of obstacles and challenges to migration.
  • Creation of a detailed plan for the migration, including a project schedule, a budget and a designated project team.

Phase 2: Compatibility testing

  • Evaluation of the compatibility of existing software and hardware with Linux.
  • Testing of key systems and applications to ensure proper operation on Linux.
  • Identification of any software or hardware that needs to be replaced or upgraded prior to migration.

Phase 3: Preparation and training

  • Preparation of servers and systems for migration.
  • Training for users in the use of Linux and key applications.
  • Development of a transition plan for the smooth migration to Linux.

Phase 4: Migration

  • Performing Linux migration on key systems and applications.
  • Verification and testing of all systems and applications to ensure proper operation on Linux.
  • Resolution of any problem or incident during the migration.

Phase 5: Support and maintenance

  • Provide support and maintenance for systems and applications migrated to Linux.
  • Continue education and training for users.
  • Perform any necessary upgrades or enhancements to systems and applications migrated to Linux.

Our experience

At SiXe Ingeniería, we started migrating computer systems to GNU/Linux in 2004. We were our first customers. Back then we had a web server and 4 desktop computers, a printer and little else.

Over the years we have migrated all types of systems for small, medium and large companies. Also from municipalities, ministries and public agencies.
