SQL Server on Linux and Windows Offers the Same Performance

This one really surprised me, mostly because I really don’t get a lot of exposure to Oracle Database on the Windows platform. Back in June I blogged about Oracle’s 10g Linux 100,000+ TPC-C result. That was a cool result for the types of reasons I blogged about then. However, it looks like that configuration has been pretty busy since the June announcement because today Oracle and HP announced an 11g TPC-C result on Windows of 102,454 TpmC on the same hardware-and achieved THE SAME THROUGHPUT! Well, give or take 1.5%. Here are links to the results:

That’s what I call platform parity, and I think it’s really cool. I wonder how SQL Server would perform in a Linux/Windows side-by-side benchmark? I know, I know, that was dopey.

By the way, I encourage you to take a peek at the full disclosure reports for these benchmarks. The Oracle configuration parameters were pretty straight forward. No voodoo.

Oops, I almost forgot to mention that the title of this blog entry was meant to be humorous.
