New Sun Fire V1280 System Sets Benchmark World Record
New Sun Fire V1280 System Sets Benchmark World Record

(February 11, 2003) - Sun Microsystems, Inc. has revealed a new SPECjAppServer2001 world record benchmark. The Sun Fire V1280 system, running the Solaris Operating Environment, demonstrated its scalability in application serving workloads, as the only 12-way system to run this benchmark in the dual-node category to date. A 12-CPU 900MHz UltraSPARC III Cu Sun Fire V1280 system (application server hardware) and an 8-CPU 900MHz UltraSPARC III Cu Sun Fire V880 system (database server hardware) recorded 521.86 BOPS at US$1,133.64/BOPS, running the Oracle9I Application Server and Oracle9i Database.

With the arrival in September 2002 of the SPECjAppServer2001 benchmark, the available tools for evaluating J2EE application servers have grown and improved. The Standard Performance Evaluation Corporation (SPEC) has designed the SPECjAppServer 2001 benchmark to exercise the J2EE application servers and the JVM, as well as the server Systems Under Test (SUT). The new benchmark focuses on testing the EJB container in a J2EE 1.2 server.

As a demonstration of Sun's leadership in J2EE application serving workloads, Sun systems now hold the performance records for both the Multiple-Node and Dual-Node

Wanna know more about SPECjAppServer? go here http://www.spec.org/

Interesting to see that they got this result using the Oracle AppServer rather than their own Sun ONE AppServer. Wonder why...?

Congrats! But this is as far as it goes...

Since the SPECjAppServer2001 is SUN proprietary, I'm not sure what I'd compare it to?

In other words, if it was announced that MS held the new RazamatazDotNETAppServer2004 benchmark, I be just as unlikely to know what it means...

Unlike the TPC (www.tpc.org - a true standard) that can compare Oracle, DB2, SQL Server, etc., this SPECjAppServer2001 tells me nothing...

Is it cheaper for me to build my site on .NET using WinTel blades or use Sun.

Without a direct J2EE-to-.NET Pet Shop like example, this seems to be just the same old marketing hype...

Sorry, but congrats again (on what I don't know enough to compare it to anything else).
