I am having a Drupal-6 site and was considering to scale it. I came across Pressflow and was wondering about the major differences between the two. I came across a similar question of Drupal-7 vs Pressflow-7 but was looking specifically for Drupal-6 vs Pressflow-6. Can anyone enlighten or share their experience of using both.

Did you look at this? pressflow.org/faq – Patrick Kenny Jan 14 '13 at 6:06
@PatrickKenny I did look at the faq but could not find much other than "integration with Varnish and allows for MySQL replication". I was not sure if this is only the difference. – Shan Jan 14 '13 at 6:18
I am closing this question as the list of differences between Drupal 6, and Pressflow 6 is not a finite list. Pressflow 6 contains code that has been ported to Drupal 7, and there could be Drupal 7 code that is ported to Pressflow 6. Pressflow 6 is still under development. – kiamlaluno Jan 14 '13 at 10:46

Take a look at the wiki: "Comparison - Pressflow versus Drupal".

Thanks for the link. Can't vote your answer up but would surely request others to do it. Any link to the performance improvement or benchmarks between the two? – Shan Jan 14 '13 at 6:35
