Speedy on Niagara

Colm MacCárthaigh gobsmacked himself — and us! — with some impressive stats that show Ubuntu tidily outperforming Solaris Express on Sun’s Niagara-powered T2000. Given that Niagara is optimised more for throughput and thread-count than raw number-crunching, Colm benchmarked Apache web requests. He reports that “the result is stunning. Ubuntu is now outperforming even Solaris express, and we’re sustaining 22,183.43 requests per second – using out of the box Apache 2.2.0.” Way to go!
