Product Overview

FreeBSD is an operating system used to power servers, desktops, and embedded systems. Derived from BSD, the version of UNIX developed at the University of California, Berkeley, FreeBSD has been continually developed by a large community for more than 30 years.

FreeBSD's networking, security, storage, and monitoring features, including the pf firewall, the Capsicum and CloudABI capability frameworks, the ZFS filesystem, and the DTrace dynamic tracing framework, make FreeBSD the platform of choice for many of the busiest web sites and most pervasive embedded networking and storage systems.

Operating System

Linux/Unix, FreeBSD 10

Highlights

  • FreeBSD provides access to over 26,000 third-party applications via the ports tree and binary packages.
  • FreeBSD's widely-recognized stability and reliability and five-year support for stable branches makes it ideal for building long-lived services.
  • Between Capsicum, Jails, CloudABI, and support for multiple firewalls, FreeBSD provides an unsurpassed security feature set.

Running BSD on AWS

FreeBSD was once "the power to server" but in an AWS world we have fallen way, waaay behind and there seems no interest to fix it!

Thanks for the replies. But I find them strange.

* FreeBSD not for speed .... but for what? Power to serve?
* Amazon EBS, what it is and what it isn't, that's irrelevant since I am running both Linux and FreeBSD on that exact same hardware.

But tine, I have some good news.

I really want this not to be a problem. I am too invested in FreeBSD. Could it be that raw dd to disk is a special case?

After I created a ZFS pool from just that one disk and then do the dd test, I get better results:

Code:

But how? Raw writing should be faster!?

I have done a second test with a UFS file system and again dd test to a file is fast. There seems to be an issue when writing to the raw device? Maybe it's a blocksize issue? Not sure, since I gave dd's bs=1G, maybe it assumed some internal fragmentation?

Here is raw once again:

Code:


So the write request per second w/s is really just 650 for some reason dd is weird here, it's not fragmenting the blocks.

But with a UFS file system:

Code:


Here we write with 2741 IOPS which is about the limit that the virtual machine bus hardware allows.

So, I will say that perhaps this is OK. Perhaps only dd is somehow flawed. But for the use that dd gets, to make raw disk copies usually, it's weird that dd would perform so badly.

Opinions requested: FreeBSD on AWS EC2 vs Amazon Linux etc

Many thanks for your kind opinions. I have been in touch with Colin, and indeed, he has been very helpful.

If you have many years of experience using CentOS I would stay with it. FreeBSD has nothing to brag about when it comes to SSL. When and if BearSSL gets done and becomes the part of FreeBSD core than maybe. Right now FreeBSD is shipped with OpenSSL and compiling things against LibreSSL is non trivial. So it is basically the same OpenSSL code you get on CentOS.

Indeed, I agree with not changing unless needed. However, I dislike the haphazard nature of how much of Linux userland has been put together. Managing all the bits, with their inconsistencies, taxes the time. I also have to rely on what distro maintainers want me to have in it. Currently, Amazon Linux does not come with OpenSSL newer than 1.0.1k-fips 8 Jan 2015 and our apps need 1.0.2k. Their engineers will not let us know when they are upgrading. CentOS is stuck with old PHP... Sure, I can manage it all manually, but then I might just as well do it with FreeBSD where it is more elegantly put together—I feel (and hope). In general, having a more elegant base OS, where things as small as config files or start-up scripts are in their right places has much value to me and to my company.

Also: the community. I have been several times in a situation where getting a sensible reply from a developer of a Linux/Drupal/AWS component is not possible or leads to expensive frustration. My month-old experience of FreeBSD suggests that its approachable, knowledgeable, and above all, more maturecommunity may be one of its key qualities that I would appreciate for a long enough time to come.

We have several FreeBSD hosts running on AWS. Note that working on AWS is a little different (compared to a more traditional VPS provider). It is assumed the instances are easily deleted and recreated. There's no console option for example. So if you run into problems there's no way to login via a console and fix issues. So you're going to have to destroy the instance and bring up a new one. It's therefor imperative to never save any data on the instances themselves.

Thank you for pointing this out. I would not be too concerned as we have run our CentOS/Amazon Linux on AWS for 6 years now, and we have plenty of own scripts to tear down and rebuild (small) fleets of machines as needed. It was harder in 2010 when we had to build our own AMI images, things are pretty automatic now. I have similar experience with Azure, but we prefer to use it for running cloud-based analytics, ML and databases. One way or another, I do not fear the cloud anymore. :)I am more fishing for insight on the stability and overall longer-term experience of FreeBSD in the cloud. From the last few days of testing I can already see that FreeBSD takes longer to launch a new machine or reboot than our existing machines in AWS, however, it also makes some of the instance-launch config cleaner and simpler. I hope to have more experience in due course, and I will gladly share it when I have gathered enough reliable experience.
