Linux runs faster on Windows Azure than Amazon or Rackspace Openstack!

I recently reviewed a detailed comparison of the top 5 IaaS cloud providers and it listed Windows Azure as having the best overall value (both in cost and performance).

The interesting thing about the comparison is they used a benchmarking tool called Unixbench running on Ubuntu linux.

The irony of a Linux distribution running better on a Windows cloud platform than Rackspace Openstack which itself uses linux is just too awesome not to highlight and draw attention to!!

The full article is here and I highly recommend it.
