My company is in the midst of upgrading our database hardware / software to support Oracle 11g. We're considering the following hardware / OS combinations for the database server:
- Sun v890 (current hardware) / Solaris 10
- Sun T5120 / Solaris 10
- Sun T5120 / Linux
- Dell 810 / Solaris x86
- Dell 810 / Linux
As far as performance goes, do any of the above combinations have a discernable edge? Are there any published trade studies or whitepapers that help make a case for a particular combo?
