OpenSolaris Web Stack: Where MySQL Meets the Next Generation OS

Moderated by: Murthy Chintalapati, Jyri Virkki
Location: Ballroom B

The OpenSolaris Web Stack is an open source project hosted on opensolaris.org [1]. The Web Stack consists of popular open source web infrastructure (known as LAMP or SAMP) technologies, such as Apache HTTPd, PHP, Python, MySQL, lighttpd, Tomcat and more. As a fully integrated in the OpenSolaris operating system, Web Stack delivers close integration with OpenSolaris innovations such as DTrace and ZFS.

In this BoF, we discuss our experiences building the stack, developing extensive DTrace probes around the stack, and understanding its performance & scaling characteristics. We demonstrate how easy it is to deploy popular PHP based content management frameworks such as Drupal within minutes on Web Stack. Using Apache Olio benchmark workload, we show Web Stack can be easily scaled to 1 Million entries in MySQL 5.1 database, serving thousands of users.
