After running SC in-house for a while we moved it to a Linux VPS where it has been for years. The reason we moved it to a VPS was our Internet at the time was coax-based and we had constant outages. Over the years we've transitioned to fiber and we've had 100% uptime since then. The VPS is an added monthly cost that we'd like to cut and we're going to move it back in-house. That being said, we have both Windows and Linux servers and it's just as easy to install it on one versus the other. The question is, is there an advantage to running it in Windows again being that it's technically a .net application?

Is migration of the unattended access database possible if moving from Linux to Windows?

In general, large implementations work best on Windows. We've noticed some issues with the mono runtime (upon which the Linux server is based), especially if you use 15 or more active sessions at a time or have over 1000 Access clients.

That being said, you shouldn't have any trouble migrating from Linux to Windows. The following article gives a detailed account of how to migrate the server between various environments:
