Currently every server we run in our datacenter is gentoo driven.
From our Bind nameservers ( one of the has a uptime of 897 days by now ) to several mysql database servers, xen cluster with livemigration, ietd iscsi targets, apache webserver, radius, postfix mailservers with pop3 and imap postboxes for several hundred clients and syslog server.
Everyone single one of them is running in mission critical under enterprise circumstances. A lot is virtualized with xen and its pure joy being able to livemigrate several virtual hosts from A to B without any service disturbance. Maintaining these server is pure fun. Im just convinced that Gentoo is made for datacenters ;) Well of course managing all these portage trees and keeping software up to date can keep you busy for some time but I assume that this is not different to any other distri.
Especially the fact that I was able to turn off 5 physical servers because their tasks are now managed on the xen cluster was impressive.
I'm also using Gentoo on my companies workstation. I just feel that I can't work as nearly as effective with windows as I do with Gentoo Linux.
Larry the cow is happy ;)
With kind regards
