Linux versions of Exacq servers typically support 50-100% greater video storage rates and 30%-50% higher local client FPS display.
Exacq said that while the hardware is identical, Linux OS outperforms Windows in their testing: The hardware specs are identical. For our specific workload writing through the file system (recording throughput) and drawing many decoded video streams to screen, the Linux OS does outperform Windows OS in our testing.
That is quite a difference. However, does this simply mean awful Exacq code optimization for Windows?
