The Millennium Technology Prize is Finland’s tribute to life-enhancing technological innovation.Technology Academy Finland has today declared two prominent innovators, Linus Torvalds and Dr Shinya Yamanaka, laureates of the 2012 Millennium Technology Prize, the prominent award for technological innovation. The laureates, who will follow in the footsteps of past victors such as World Wide Web creator Sir Tim Berners-Lee, will be celebrated at a ceremony in Helsinki, Finland, on Wednesday 13 June 2012, when the winner of the Grand Prize will be announced. The prize pool exceeds EUR 1 Million.
If you've ever made a transaction on a tier2 NO (including being provisioned), you've used linux.
I'm gonna hate myself for doing this but..
http://www.sap.com/solutions/benchma...er.epx?num=200 -- sort by SAPs. RHEL is about 15 spaces from the top (you'll notice the top spots are all IBM's "slow" AIX mainframes). The machine used is an HP Proliant with 80/160. If you go a bit further down you'll see RHEL on a similar machine but with 40/80. The scaling is about 85%, or so.
Here's the thread where TheOrqwithVagran was teaching you about large compute systems: http://phoronix.com/forums/showthrea...lity-etc/page6
I hope Oracle is paying you well.
Has anyone here had experience escalating issues to Oracle for OEL? How did it turn out? Are you able to compare it to RHEL support?
Fortunately, this is all backed up to safe offline storage and can be fetched from here, easily overwriting the corrupt data in your head with an accurate recording of what was said ->
In the previous discussion you made the mistake of immediately classifying me as a "linux proponent", presumably because I corrected you on a number of things you commonly use in your anti-linux posts. I'm not a "proponent" of anything except accurate fact-based decision making when it comes to OS choice, proper use of terminology in discussions, and factually correct statements in such discussions. I'm is a Senior Software Engineer at a large US software company, and we are not by any means a "Linux company" (we're many times bigger than the biggest "Linux company", which would be Red Hat) although we have in the last few years been increasingly using Linux "under the hood" in various products, and more importantly, our customers - the majority of which are HUGE corporations and government agencies - are increasingly using Linux.
Before my current job, I was a *nix consultant and worked with Linux, Solaris and AIX. I've written open-source kernel-level code that is being used and shipped in commercial products from various large companies, including SUN/Oracle. I work with large multiprocessor systems _every day_, and the last year have had quite a few instances of troubleshooting situations where software designs were made without anticipating how fast "large" shared memory multicore systems would become mainstream, or the fact that every new enterprise server coming out is now a NUMA design. This is why I get incredibly annoyed when I see your ill-informed, terminology-mangling posts and post responses to them despite the fact that it's proven about as productive as trying to hammer facts into the head of a moon-hoax believer.
