Phoronix Global Is Still Planned To Be Decommissioned

Originally I planned to shutdown Phoronix Global at the end of 2013 but out of continued usage of the service, Phoronix Global is still being kept online for the time being.

For those out of the loop, Phoronix Global was the web service going back many years for sharing and comparing Linux benchmark results online with the Phoronix Test Suite. Phoronix Global was succeeded by OpenBenchmarking.org for publicly storing Linux benchmark results along with centralizing the storage of test profiles and test suites in the cloud.

OpenBenchmarking.org has been used by the Phoronix Test Suite for the past three years now spanning many releases, but to some surprise but as a testament to the stability and reliability of our open-source benchmarking software, there's still users of our old Phoronix Test Suite open-source benchmarking software. With the Phoronix Test Suite 1.x and 2.x series releases are where Phoronix Global was used before the roll-out of OpenBenchmarking.org.

I don't have a solid time-frame yet for when Phoronix Global will be offlined, but it's no longer being maintained and all users of the old Phoronix Test Suite are encouraged to upgrade as soon as possible... Phoronix Test Suite 5.0.1 is the latest release as of this week. Any enterprise users with questions are encouraged to contact us.
