Looking at jEnterprise2010 scores:

A T5-2 gets a jEnterprise2010 score of 17k, an X4-2 11k (with half the memory and Oracle Broken Linux 5.9, why not 6.*?).

The sparc has a list price of ~68k USD. Not sure what a two socket Oracle intel box costs; maybe 15k or so?

sparc; 4 usd/score
intel: 1.36 usd/score

Sparc was nice once, but that was ever so long ago..

Comment Re:They Why ZFS? (Score 1) 235

I did some benchmarking a while ago on freebsd7 solaris10 and centos4.6, all on the same hardware. At the time, Veritas came out quite well.

on 8 disks, raidz/5:

FreeBSD7: 144/73 MB/s r/w using dd
Solaris10: 150/92
Fedora7 md raid: 164/130
Solaris/veritas: 169/35


FreeBSD7 (zfs): 236/155
Solaris10 (zfs): 169/132
Fedora7 (md0): 259/188
Centos4+vertias: 236/270

Solaris10 (zfs) random write was as fast as veritas and much faster than all the others (~300MB/s versus 150-ish).

I'm now running btrfs and am quite happy with it, should probably run those benchmarks again and clean up the page a bit

Every nonzero finite dimensional inner product space has an orthonormal basis. It makes sense, when you don't think about it.
