Trading Linux for Solaris

|Real Time Matrix,
a provider of cross-platform modular communication and marketing
services, has traded Linux for Sun's Solaris 10 operating system for
many of its production systems.
Real Time Matrix said that Solaris 10's throughput when compared with Linux impressed them. "On a 64-bit AMD processor and Fedora, we could process approximately 200 matches per second of RSS," Jeff Whitehead, founder and CEO, said. "With Solaris 10 on the T1000, this match rate jumped to 10,000 per second."
The company was recently featured in SearchEnterpriseLinux.com. Check out CEO Jeff Whitehead discussing how the company went from being a die-hard Linux shop to abandoning Linux for Solaris 10 with 50 times better throughput they realized with Solaris 10.
