OpenSolaris Web Stack shines on Nehalem based servers
We are proud to be part of Nehalem (Intel Xeon 5500) based Sun's latest x64 servers launch.
As Shanti Subramanyam and her colleagues in our Systems organization show, OpenSolaris Web Stack on a pair of x2250 servers can scale to 10,000 users with 1 Million MySQL entries! Web Stack (officially Sun GlassFish Web Stack), as you might know, includes Apache web server, PHP, MySQL Community, lighttpd etc.
Also, our colleagues in ISV Engineering demonstrated SugarCRM Performance on Sun Fire X4270 (with SSD Drives and Intel X5570 Processors) - using OpenSolaris Web Stack
