Re: Buying DELL server for SQL, need advice! In reply to
I would run Solaris on a Sparc chipset, before I'd run any of the others on an Intel chipset. In fact, that is what I'm doing. But on an Intel chipset, Solaris would not be my first choice. A flavor of Linux probably would be. I avoid NT for reasons that are legion. Also, I don't think any of M$ configurations will be a Unix configuration -- remember, they fine-tune Windows, and try to run Linux out of the box -- no tuning.

Solaris has advantages in multi-server configurations. On a single server, unless you want to run on a Sparc chipset, Solaris offers no advantages.

But, especially for Unix, Sparc has much better peformance than Intel.
