Yes You Can - Save $$$ on cost of Proprietary Databases

The New Sun Microsystems  announced a new Glassfish/MySQL/OpenSolaris SPECjAppServer2004 result today. The  real highlight is that all software used in this benchmark is all Open Source Software. It is  a win for Open Source Software including Open Source Databases like PostgreSQL and MySQL. We need more of such benchmarks to highlight the exorbitant prices charged by Proprietary Database & other Software Vendors who charge and force customers to give them all their major dollars of their IT budget.

Tom Daly's blog entry highlight that in terms of Price/Performance, the proprietary database vendors who  conveniently also happen to be the Application Server Vendors charge  a much higher cost including all hardware/software (10X) associated with same performance which can be obtained  by Open Source database alternatives like PostgreSQL and MySQL. Check BM Seer's blog entry for more comparison.

Results from www.spec.org as of 5th Nov 2008 All comparisons are based on the SPEC SPECjAppServer2004JOPS@Standard metric from www.spec.org or on pricing made using the bill of materials included in each SPECjAppServer2004 result
