Hello every body,

We are deciding our long-term strategy whether to go for Sybase on Unix Or NT. Can somebody help me with some benchmark information? Any web sites with that kind of info? If any one shifted from NT to Unix, what strong points or statistics on the Unix side?

Thanks,

Vasavi

Any beachmarks wouldn't really help you. You'd have to draw your own
conclusions from your own benchmarks using your own applicationd. But
as far as Unix goes, I find it a lot easier to adminster than NT.
However, if you only have NT experience, its often argued that its
best to stick to what you know.
