Hash: SHA1

Open Source Solution Breaks World Sorting Records

,----[ Quote ]
| In a recent blog post, Yahoo's grid computing team announced that Apache 
| Hadoop was used to break the current world sorting records in the annual 
| GraySort contest. It topped the 'Gray' and 'Minute' sorts in the general 
| purpose (Daytona) category. They sorted 1TB in 62 seconds, and 1PB in 16.25 
| hours. Apache Hadoop is the only open source software to ever win the 
| competition. It also won the Terasort competition last year.     



  Red Hat Sets New Industry Benchmark Performance Records

,----[ Quote ]
| The dust is starting to settle around last week’s Intel Xeon 5500 series
| processor “Nehalem-EP” launch, in which Red Hat was a prominent partner.
| Intel called it their “most revolutionary server processors since…the Intel
| Pentium Pro processor 15 years ago.” The proof may be in the large number of
| new performance records that were established at the launch in which Red Hat
| and our partners exceeded previous results on eight different
| industry-standard tests. The results delivered by the applications that we
| ran reflect the real-world scalability and performance of Red Hat Enterprise
| Linux on the new quad-core Intel processors.


Red Hat Achieves Record-Setting Price and Performance Benchmark

,----[ Quote ]
| Red Hat (NYSE: RHT), the world’s leading provider of open source solutions,
| today announced that Red Hat Enterprise Linux has achieved a powerful,
| record-setting TPC-C benchmark that demonstrates the rapid improvements that
| open source software can bring to overall performance and costs. In its fifth
| TPC-C result over 1M tpmC, Red Hat improved price performance to a level 20
| percent lower than the best competing non-Red-Hat result with a combination
| of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.2 on an IBM System x 3950 M2 with the new Intel
| X7460 Xeon processor.
