MySQL Database Runs 60 to 90 Percent Faster on Solaris 10 Than on Red Hat Linux
Sun Microsystems, Inc. today announced new benchmark results involving the performance of the open source MySQL database running online transaction processing (OLTP) workload on 8-way Sun Fire(TM) V40z servers. The testing, which measured the performance of both read/write and read-only operations, showed that MySQL 5.0.18 running on the Solaris(TM) 10 Operating System (OS) executed the same functions up to 64 percent faster in read/write mode and up to 91 percent faster in read-only mode than when it ran on the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 Advanced Server Edition OS.
"MySQL and Sun have worked to optimize the performance of MySQL Network software certified for the Solaris 10 OS," said Zack Urlocker, vice president of marketing for MySQL AB. "This benchmark demonstrates Sun's continued leadership in delivering a world-class operating environment that provides excellent MySQL performance for our mutual enterprise customers."
