I think I should consider changing my name from hpuxrac to oracle_on_intel.

We are in the midst of a swapout of running oracle on hpux over to 5.1 OEL running on intel xeon quad core.

Ran a whole bunch of custom testing on different hardware ranging from Sun's latest 8 core systems over to AMD and Itanium and Intel. Well the intel quad core performance 64 bit running OEL 5.1 is pretty remarkable.

Do you have something specific to backup the "Intel hardware sucks" line? Received on Fri May 09 2008 - 17:04:36 CDT
