    Phoronix: Amazon Linux 2022 Performs Well, But Intel's Clear Linux Continues Leading In The Cloud

    AWS recently introduced Amazon Linux 2022 in preview form as the latest iteration of their Linux distribution now based on Fedora with various alterations to catering to their customers running it on EC2. Last week were benchmarks looking at Amazon Linux 2022 compared to Amazon Linux 2 and other distributions like CentOS and Ubuntu. In this article we are seeing how Amazon Linux 2022 can compete with Intel's own Clear Linux performance-optimized distribution.

    What? Java 18 is out already?!
    And I thought Java 17 was the leading one....

      Not yet, but as I recall java 18 about to be forked from the development branch, and should be GA by the time AL2022 is out of preview.

        Speaking of clouds, AWS appears to be on it's knees right now.

        The Cloud, what can possibly go wrong ?

            Primarily US-EAST-1 (although because that region is used as the authoritative region for some other activities, it has apparently impacted other regions). Those that do not have geographic along with regional diversity in their cloud deployments, *and* test failure scenarios regularly (using something equivalent to Netflix's Chaos Monkey) are certain to see such outages sooner or later. For various reasons the default/default, and often the 1st availability (so you initially test there, and then just declare it production?) for certain services deployment can end up being in US-EAST-1, so one needs to pay attention.

                This is why smart people and companies that use cloud services diversify their service providers if they can afford it. It would take something geographically catastrophic to take out well planned cloud services. This happens to be one reason why Netflix started building its own CDS so they aren't so dependent on AWS.

                People complain about cloud services, but the reality is your local ISP is more likely to go down and cause problems than a cloud service provider is.

                  Regarding the java 8 vs. 18 part: there is clearlinux/openjdk13 docker images available that come with java 13 preinstalled.
                  Would be interesting to see how these perform against AL22
