Oops! Our mistake can be your gain.


A couple of weeks ago, I posted a blog announcing that there were 100 SAP HANA benchmarks run on SUSE Linux Enterprise Server. A couple of hours later, I learned that due to a technical glitch in the counter there were only 97 benchmarks so I immediately removed the blog. Today there are 98 benchmarks and I feel like we’ll get there soon, so let’s have a little fun with this.

Be the first person to respond in the comments section of this blog with your guess for the date when an IHV or CSP will publish the 100th SAP HANA benchmark on SUSE Linux Enterprise Server and you will win $100 SUSE bucks to spend for cool merchandise from the SUSE Store. When the 100th benchmark is published, we’ll look at all entry timestamps leading up to that day and select the winner who correctly predicted the date first. (Sorry, SUSE employees are not eligible.)

This is your chance to get that cool SUSE shirt or giant chameleon plushie you’ve always wanted!

Be sure to check back on the SUSE blog site regularly for the announcement of the winner.

    As true as IT sometimes breakdowns, we all goof every now and then.
    What is important is the way we react.
    Being open, honest and fun is a must and you did all of this.
    Bravo !
