Somers, N.Y - 10 Nov 2005: . . . IBM today announced that the latest version of its industry leading WebSphere Application Server software outperformed the competition by 64 percent on SPECjAppServer2004, an industry standard benchmark that measures the real-world performance of Java 2 Enterprise Edition (J2EE) application servers.  

The Standard Performance Evaluation Corp.'s (SPEC) SPECjAppServer2004 benchmark reflects the rigors of complex applications and high-volume transaction processing that are typical in today's customer environments.  The test spans all major components of the application server including Web serving, Enterprise Java Beans and messaging and includes hardware, application server software, Java Virtual Machine software, database software and a systems network.

IBM's results submission involved more than 22,000 concurrent clients and produced more than 2,921 complex business transactions per second.  The IBM submission represented a complete IBM solution bringing together the latest version of WebSphere Application Server software, DB2 Universal Database and IBM System p5 550 servers running SUSE Linux. This powerful solution outperformed a combination of BEA and Oracle software running on Sun Solaris and at significantly lower total cost of ownership across the full configuration.

"These latest results further demonstrate the industry leading capability of IBM WebSphere Application Server," said Sandy Carter, Vice President, IBM WebSphere Software.  "Using WebSphere Application Server as the foundation of a Service Oriented Architecture allows customers to deploy application services knowing their infrastructure can scale quickly and securely as their business needs grow and evolve.
