Curious How Various Web Mapping Servers Perform?

Sydney, Australia. 21 September 2009.

  • Outline what is involved in the benchmarking tests
  • Mention the history
  • Who is involved this year
  • Some quotes
    • ESRI saying something like: "Arc GIS server integrates well with Open Source. It runs on Red Hat Linux, can connect to Open
  Source databases, and interacts with clients through Open Standards. We see the benchmarking as a way to show how ESRI
  integrates well with other systems."
    • Mapserver/Geoserver: "Past benchmarking tests have led to (major?) improvements in different areas of our code ..."
