This paper compares the performance of an Online Transaction Processing (OLTP) based workload executed on a PostgreSQL database running on a Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.4 operating system to that of the same workload executed on a SQL Server database running on Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise. For this effort, Red Hat partnered with EnterpriseDB, a leader in products and services based on PostgreSQL, the world's most advanced open source database.
