BEA Continues to Expedite SOA with JRockit 5.0 Java Virtual Machine

JRockit Breaks SPECjbb2002 Benchmark Record

BEAWORLD, BEIJING, Dec. 8 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- BEA Systems, Inc. , a world leader in enterprise infrastructure software, today announced that its JRockit(R) JVM (Java Virtual Machine) has set another record, by netting a SPECjbb2000 benchmark result of 861,647 operations per second.

The result, published last week by SPEC, a non-profit organization that maintains and endorses standardized benchmarks, was achieved using a Fujitsu PRIMEQUEST 480 server with 32 Intel(R) Itanium(R) 2 processors and the JRockit JVM 5.0. The result was the best 32-way score on non-SMT/HT hardware. It was also better than any result produced by Sun's HotSpot JVM on a machine of the same configuration.

"Data center administrators are constantly looking for ways to increase performance while simultaneously driving down costs, and one key component in that struggle is deploying the best JVM," said Guy Churchward, general manager, Java Runtime Products Group (JRPG), BEA Systems, Inc.

JRockit, proven to be the fastest JVM on Intel(R) Xeon(R) and Intel(R) Itanium2(R) processors, is also designed to provide interoperability across multiple hardware and operating system configurations. JRockit can help make it possible to gain optimal performance for Java applications deployed on 32- bit or 64-bit architectures of both the Microsoft Windows and Linux operating system platforms.

"We have collaborated actively with BEA for years to ensure their software is optimized down to the JVM-level to take full advantage of our processor architectures," said Shannon Poulin, Enterprise Platform Marketing Director, Intel. "The result of this ongoing collaboration is a fast and robust infrastructure platform that is designed to allow IT departments to be more responsive to the needs of their businesses and provide an ideal foundation for service-oriented architectures."

SPECjbb is an independently designed and validated industry-standard benchmark that is specifically designed to measure the scalability and performance of JVMs, which are used by Java 2 Enterprise Edition (J2EE) technology-based application servers.

When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices.

When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
Detecting internal user threats in the Big Data eco-system is challenging and cumbersome. Many organizations monitor internal usage of the Big Data eco-system using a set of alerts. This is not a scalable process given the increase in the number of alerts with the accelerating growth in data volume and user base. Organizations are increasingly leveraging machine learning to monitor only those data elements that are sensitive and critical, autonomously establish monitoring policies, and to detect...

Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality. Requirements to deploy modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure. Compute and network infrastructure are fast moving down a software-defined path, but storage has been a laggard. Until now.
Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer. The constant pressure to provide complete, omnichannel delivery of customer-facing solutions to meet both regulatory and customer demands is putting enormous pressure on...

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
"Akvelon is a software development company and we also provide consultancy services to folks who are looking to scale or accelerate their engineering roadmaps," explained Jeremiah Mothersell, Marketing Manager at Akvelon, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 21st Cloud Expo, held Oct 31 – Nov 2, 2017, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...
IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology. As this movement continues to expand and gain momentum it creates a massive wall of noise that can be difficult to sift through. Unfortunately, this inevitably makes IoT less approachable for people to get started with and can hamper efforts to integrate this key technology into your own portfolio. There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...
