Solaris: “I’m not quite dead!”Posted: November 18, 2005
Seems the pronoucements (including my own) of Solaris’ death were a bit premature, according to David Berlind. I agree. In terms of performance and stability, Solaris is definitely the 800 pound gorilla over Linux, and now with it being essentially free on x86 (it has been for a while, although making it open source definitely makes this much more clear) I see no reason not to deploy it over Linux. I’ll definitely be exploring this as an option for some of my new deployements, especially with ZFS out in the wild now.
