Submission + - PostgreSQL officially faster then MySQL->

IpSo_ writes: Josh Berkus just posted on his blog : "First, the bare facts: we just published 778.14 SPECjAppServer2004 JOPS@Standard with the Spec performance publication organization."

He continued with: "No more "slow elephant." For ages a reputation of sluggish performance has dogged the PostgreSQL project, due to both unfavorable comparisons with MySQL back in 1998 and due to our ongoing lack of auto-configuration (yes, yes, I'm working on it!). This publication shows that a properly tuned PostgreSQL is not only as fast or faster than MySQL (720.56 SPECjAppServer2004 JOPS@Standard), but almost as fast as Oracle (since the hardware platforms are different, it's hard to compare directly). This is something we've been saying for the last 2 years, and now we can prove it."
