IXOS-eCONserver Receives High Performance and Scalability Ratings from Sun's Benchmark Test
IXOS SOFTWARE AG (NASDAQ:
"XOSY", NEUER MARKT: "XOS"), a global leader in eBusiness document
management solutions for inter-enterprise environments, announced
today that a performance benchmark of IXOS-eCONserver, the core
building block for IXOS's data and document archiving solutions,
performed jointly with Sun Microsystems, resulted in high performance
and scalability ratings. The IXOS-eCON server was tested on a Sun
Enterprise 6500 Server under the Solaris Operating Environment in
Sun's test lab in Langen, Germany.
IXOS and Sun Microsystems evaluated the performance of the
IXOS-eCON server on Sun Microsystems' high-performance parallel SMP
computers. Part of the benchmark involved testing read-access to
archived documents, where twelve processors were used to simulate
several thousand concurrent reading users during the different test
scenarios. With several hundreds of documents read per second and
data transfer rates that exceeded 70 Mbytes per second, the results
of the test clearly reflect the high performance and utilization of
the system. The processors' even load of more than 90% when running
at full capacity demonstrates the reliability and scalability of
Sun's hardware and the IXOS-eCON server.
"The Sun server benchmark is a thorough and reliable test, and
clearly indicates very high performance ratings for the
IXOS-eCONserver," said Burkhard Hensel, Director Partner Sales at
Sun Microsystems Germany. "The results demonstrate that the solution
is quite suitable for the management of both small and large amounts
of documents and data -- one of the main requirements for large
companies and Application Service Providers (ASPs)."
"We are delighted that IXOS-eCONserver scored high on the
benchmark test", said Peter Röhner, Head of Global Engineering at
IXOS. "This demonstrates that IXOS is well prepared for the
increasing demand for managing high volumes of documents."
The IXOS-eCON server is part of the IXOS-eCON Solution Suite,
which covers all aspects of document management and helps companies
to speed up business processes within and outside an organization.
