 Linux at the National Weather Service

Newsforge talks about Linux at the National Weather Service.

"So how does Linux compare in performance to current NWS systems? According to Kirkwood, their current HP-UX systems can take up to eight minutes of start-up time to load their software should the system go down, while Linux on the Intel platform takes under a minute. In addition, the switch has helped increase data processing speed. The performance that we measure with our benchmark has increased by over 100% since we completed phase one of our Linux migration," happily boasts Piercy."
