Business Objects has achieved record-breaking results in its most
recent performance tests running in the SolarisTM Operating
Environment (Solaris OE). WebIntelligence 2.6 ran on a fully loaded Sun
Enterprise 10000 server in a four domain mode with 16 CPUs
each. Business Objects has shown an 80 percent increase in performance
statistics of WebIntelligence 2.6 on the Sun EnterpriseTM 10000
server, also known as StarfireTM.
Tests performed at the Sun iForceSM Competency Center in Paris
simulated 3,600 active concurrent users reading and refreshing
reports with thousands of rows and multiple calculations. This workload
could correspond to a total population of 36,000 to hundreds of
thousands of users, depending on usage patterns. This level of
performance and scalability is critical for enterprise-wide business
intelligence deployments both within an organization as well as
extranet deployments that link companies with their customers,
suppliers, and partners.
WebIntelligence is the thin-client query, reporting and analysis tool
from Business Objects. Companies running applications on Sun Enterprise
servers can now leverage WebIntelligence 2.6, part of the
BusinessObjects 2000 suite, to access, analyze and share information
within and beyond the enterprise. Working together, Business Objects
and Sun's platform running the Solaris OE offer a scalable,
high-performance solution for business intelligence customers.
"We are extremely pleased with the dramatic results of these tests that
prove the scalability of our existing solutions and provide the basis
for our ongoing program to outdistance our competitors in scalability
and performance," said Mark Tice, group vice president of global
alliances at Business Objects. "We are pleased to work closely with Sun
on these performance metrics with the common goal of providing
customers with fully scalable enterprise solutions."
