I am brand new to Atlassian, but am prepping to install Confluence and Jira. We are a Hyper-V shop. I can either install Confluence within the Linux Host OS or a Windows Host OS. Any recommendations on which performs better? Any recommendations on a Linux Distro (that would only be running this)?
Thanks in advance
Understood the decision is personal. However, I am wondering if anyone in the community as personal recommendations - annecdotal or otherwise - which is more preferable. Performance, etc. Maybe both products run identically on either Windows or Linux but just thought I would check and see.
JVM runs faster on Linux. I do not believe this comes as a shock to anybody, right ?
First, the JVM primary development platform is *NIX system. Next, the architecture of Win is not very friendly with resources. Windows does not have a proper network stack (if I remember well, the loopback network is still an 'adapter'! stupid windows)
I wrote once a driver for Win (based on WDM, Win98) Man, it was like shooting myself in the foot. The driver architecture is complicated, unnecessary stupid, crazy to get. In comparison, the driver architecture on Linux systems is plain and simple, and it works quite easily. I will never (ever!) get myself into WDM, that's for people who only enjoy pain.
