Sun Solaris, OpenSolaris Sun Microsystems has delayed the release of two major features the company has trumpeted as reasons to try its latest version of the Solaris operating system. Eric Schrock, a Solaris kernel programmer, said on his blog in April that he's "completely redesigning the ZFS commands from the ground up" after finding some deficiencies.

And why didn't you ask directly instead of this "cat and mouse" nonsense? Further, what hardware would you want these benchmarks run on, and what benchmarks?

The vast majority of benchmarks I don't trust, regardless of who did them simply because there is so little material published as to what was done there is no way the test could be repeated and verified by an outside source.

Some of the research I have done indicates that the results you get for a particular system is only good for that system. You might or might not achieve similar results, and while it would be an interesting read, it could take months to complete. It also depends on what you are looking for, memory, disk, video, database?
