AMD Shanghai Opteron: Linux vs. OpenSolaris Benchmarks
At the SQLite benchmark, Ubuntu 8.10 performed the 12,500 database insertions in almost half the time it took OpenSolaris 2008.11. Ubuntu 9.04 results were not available for this run.
OpenSolaris 2008.11 failed again. Sunflow is the first Java powered test in this article.
OpenSolaris 2008.11 won again with Bork File Encrypter, another Java powered test. Ubuntu 9.04 was ahead of Ubuntu 8.10, but OpenSolaris 2008.11 had a strong first place finish. Seeing OpenSolaris finish strong in these Java powered tests should not be much of a surprise considering that Java and OpenSolaris are both products of Sun Microsystems.
