CentOS vs. Oracle vs. Scientific Linux 6.1 Performance

Filed under
OS
Linux

While CentOS, Scientific Linux, and Oracle Linux Server are all derived from the same upstream source (Red Hat Enterprise Linux), how does the system performance compare between these RHEL derivatives? Here are some benchmarks of each of the 6.1 releases for Oracle Server, CentOS, and Scientific Linux, as they all do not perform the same.

After doing some Oracle Linux Server 6.1 testing over the weekend, I proceeded to install the recently released CentOS 6.1 and then Scientific Linux 6.1 to see how the performance of these Linux operating systems based upon Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.1 compare in terms of performance. To some surprise, there are some noticeable performance differences in some tests.

2014: The Open Source Tipping Point

2014 was a tipping point where companies decided there was too much software to write for any one company to do it by themselves. They are shedding commodity software R&D by investing in “external R&D” with open source. Those who master the game have a compelling advantage. Those who don’t are getting left behind. We are experiencing an innovation renaissance that is largely driven by open source software that powers distributed, scale out systems. It’s been a pleasure to see this trend develop this year and I’m looking forward to 2015 with anticipation. Read more
