Not only was Ubuntu faster with SQLite than Nexenta, but Hardy's leads remained when using PostgreSQL. The newer Linux 2.6.30 kernel series delivered significantly better performance over Linux 2.6.24, but even the older Linux kernel was several times faster than Nexenta.

Ubuntu won once again, but this time when focusing on the ray-tracing performance. C-Ray is a relatively simple ray-tracing benchmark and here Nexenta CP2 RC2 on this Intel Core 2 Duo hardware was much slower. It took about six and a half minutes for Nexenta to complete the C-Ray test, but just four minutes on Ubuntu 32-bit and fewer than two minutes for Ubuntu 64-bit.

With POV-Ray, Ubuntu 64-bit was slower than Nexenta CP2 RC2, but Ubuntu 32-bit was the fastest.
