SPECjAppServer®2004 Result with Free Software
Is a benchmark possible with all free software?
Yes!! Sun has announced the 266.01 JOPS@Standard SPECjAppServer®2004 Result with Free Solaris 10 x64, Freee Sun Java Application Server Platform Edition and Free MySQL 5.0 64-bit !!
Its a cultural shift to publish a benchmark where you are not paying for the Software per se but only on yearly maintenance on the support of the software if anything goes wrong. This is just the start of a new era with Open Source Databases and Sun.
Any one interested in PostgreSQL on Solaris 10 Benchmarks?
