As hyperion is available in different OS support like: windows, Linux and Solaris?
In my experince I have seen clients with mixed flavours like windows and solaris or Windows & Linux. Except few hyperion componets major softwares can be installed either on on linux or solaris?
I felt that high ushage products like:Shared services, reports, essbase, HFM, FDM and Planning if installed on linux or solaris, it will be easy to maintain and less costly for clients?
WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THIS? Hoping that this dicussion will add value to our infra experts..
It can all depend on the internal IT policies a client has and what skills they possess to which OS may be selected, some clients prefer to be windows based and some try to be as much on unix as possible, it also can come down to cost which drives which OS they select.
As John said it depends on your policies, the existing hardware and the budget that you have available.

I would just say that my understanding is that most of the "Non-Windows" OS will not support: DRM, FDM, HFM, Performance Management Architect Dimension Server and File Generator, Production Reporting Teradata Engine, and Strategic Finance. Additionally, Financial Reporting, Web Analysis, FDMEE, Account Reconciliation, Financial Close Management, Disclosure Management, and SOA do not support these platforms when used with Financial Management.
As a result, if you need to create an environment that will include/ support HFM, you will end up with a "windows" environment. Please correct me, if I am wrong,
