Subject:Intel+BSD/Linux vs the Big Guys
View as plain text  
I have never seen a situation where Intel+BSD or Linux was not powerful
enough for a company's MySQL server. Maybe I have not been around long
enough... Can anybody share some examples when they had to go to the Big
Guys (SGI, HP, Sun, etc) for their hardware solution for MySQL for
non-political reasons and when it actually improved performance.

I can understand when you get 64 processor Sun because you are
processing so  much data that you actually have to have 64 CPU's, but
why would you get a low end Sun or HP when an equivalent Intel box will
cost much less and will do the job just as well?
