IBM Sets Record for Middleware Performance

This may be a portal blog but in at least 4/5 of our projects, we hit a services layer.  We need that data and those transactions to meet user requirements.  So I’m always interested in what’s happening in the middleware fields.  Anyway, eWeek has an article about IBM flexing their middleware muscle while setting new performance records.

In an interview with eWEEK, Dave Klavon, director of development for IBM’s WebSphere, said IBM set new records for speed of operation in Java-based software on a Power 780 server and on Power 730 Express as validated by independent SPECJ testing group. SPECjEnterprise 2010 is an industry-standard online transaction processing benchmark that is commonly used to compare the performance of middleware software for online transaction processing applications.

Klavon said these records demonstrate how businesses using  IBM WebSphere middleware on Power7 hardware can get the lowest cost for performance in the industry—one-third that of the nearest competitor. Performance is an important factor for businesses. It speeds applications, reduces the amount of hardware and results in significant savings in hardware, software and energy costs.
