The Sun SAMP stack

In the Sun ISV CxO summit held recently at Bangalore, Chennai and Hyderabad, I had talked (at Chennai and Hyderabad) about Sun’s contribution to the Open source world. As a follow-up, I thought it will be a good idea to post links to some useful resources:

1. The Sun SAMP stack (Solaris, Apache, MySQL, Python-PHP-Perl). Some performance numbers for running SAMP are over here.
2. Sun’s open source page. A small handy, graphical comparison of CDDL vs GPL vs BSD is given at Chandan’s blog.
Let me know, if you have any questions/comments.



  1. The link above goes to the Solaris 10 ‘SAMP’ offering, the other one to check out is the OpenSolaris Web Stack project which integrates all the AMP (and a lot more) components into OpenSolaris (accessible via IPS!):

  2. I am a bit curious abt Sun’s contribution with respect to SAMP. I believe that Solaris is the only contribution area for the SAMP stack. If you feel otherwise could you post some pointers to establish the fact.

  3. Abhinav, as far as I know this stack from Sun is to achieve the following things:
    1. Tune and test these stacks, so that they perform best on the Sun platform.
    2. Make it easy to develop, and install on Sun.
    The above things, will make Sun to be a attractive platform when compared to Linux in both price and ease of use.
