WebLogic Server 8.1 Sets New Performance Records

BEA Leads Industry in Java Performance Benchmark Records

BEA WebLogic Server 8.1 has set new performance records, topping previous results in the dual-node performance category using the industry- standard SPECjAppServer2002 benchmark.

This independently designed and validated industry-standard benchmark measures the performance of application servers running typical business applications. The benchmark is specifically designed to test J2EE in a standard platform for development of portable, scalable, multi-tier enterprise applications.

The new BEA SPECjAppServer2002 records include:

  • Fastest performance of any 4-CPU system in the dual-node category. Running BEA WebLogic Server 8.1 and BEA WebLogic JRockit 1.4.2 on an Intel® Itanium® 2 processor-based HP Integrity rx4640 server running Red Hat Enterprise Linux delivers 1710.23 [email protected] with a price-to-performance ratio of only $115.72 USD/[email protected].
  • Fastest performance in the dual-node category. BEA WebLogic Server 8.1 on Sun Fire(TM) E6900 servers with UltraSPARC IV 1.2GHz processors running Solaris, delivers 4220.39 Total Operations Per Second ([email protected]) and 834.98 $/[email protected] BEA WebLogic running Solaris holds the top result; delivering more than twice the performance of the nearest closest competitor in this category.

BEA continues to provide the very best combination of price and performance available to J2EE-enabled enterprises. Since the establishment of the SPECjAppServer benchmark, BEA has consistently held top scores in both the dual-node and multi-node categories," said Ed Whelan, Director, Engineering, BEA Systems. "The quality of our technology continues to drive the industry forward and provide customers with the most sophisticated J2EE platforms available."

The new records clearly illustrate an ongoing commitment from BEA and its partners to providing performance and total-cost-of-ownership (TCO) advantages for customers, Whelan explained. 

Spanning the years, BEA has achieved world-record performance benchmarks on a wide variety of hardware, operating systems and databases, including: systems from HP, Dell, Sun and others; HP-UX, Linux, Solaris, and Windows operating systems; processors varying from PA-RISC to Intel-based 32- bit and 64-bit to Solaris; and a range of databases including Oracle, Microsoft SQL, and MySQL.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
