    The Discussion

      Interesting stuff. I know a couple of IBM-oriented people who laugh at the word "Windows" because they say it doesn't scale well. Something for them to think about.

      Still, what's hiding behind the Large Object-slides which is skipped over? I can see that Windows doesn't outperform IBM is these senarios but it doesn't look like anything to be ashamed of, esspecially not when you also take the pricing into account here Smiley

      I've added the link to the benchmark report so you can check out the numbers yourself.  It appears to me that in all tests except for Large Object without failover that .NET performed better.

      The difference in perf however is small - of course - the difference in price is great.
