IBM Delivers Record Performance to Cloud, Mobile and Web App Developers

Winning per core, per processor and per system comparisons on the latest Intel® Xeon® Processor E5-2600 v3 in the SPECjEnterprise2010 benchmark result, WebSphere retains industry leadership in middleware performance

IBM (NYSE: IBM) today announced results from an industry benchmark that demonstrate record speed to help developers better integrate applications on the cloud. Today, data must flow seamlessly across an enterprise to meet the demands of new digital workloads. This requirement creates integration challenges for application developers that are working to deliver new analytics, big data, and mobile applications in hybrid cloud environments. IBM's WebSphere software can help developers address these integration challenges and rapidly deploy applications in complex cloud environments.

The IBM WebSphere Application Server beat Oracle's WebLogic Server in per core, per processor and per system comparisons on the latest Intel® Xeon® Processor E5-2600 v3 in a record SPECjEnterprise20101 benchmark result. IBM published a world record2 single application server result of 19,282.14 SPECjEnterprise20101 EjOPS for the application tier and the database on industry standard servers running Intel® Xeon® Processor E5-2600 v3.

IBM WebSphere Application Server serves applications - whether mobile, Web, cloud or mission-critical enterprise applications - from the front office to the back office to support seamless systems of engagement. It can help clients offer richer user experiences through the rapid delivery of innovative applications. WebSphere's cloud and virtualization technologies are positioned to help clients leverage the cost savings and time-to-value benefits of cloud computing, build their own clouds, and take advantage of traditional IBM technologies delivered on the cloud.

The WebSphere Application Server equipped with dual Intel® Xeon® Processor E5-2600 v3 demonstrated 31 percent better performance on per core basis when compared to latest 18800.76 SPECjEnterprise20101 EjOPS result from Oracle using WebLogic 12.1.3 Server running on Oracle Server X5-2 also equipped with dual Intel® Xeon® Processor E5-2600 v3.

"In a real world, full system benchmark, IBM WebSphere Application Server outperformed Oracle on per core, per processor and per system comparisons," said Elisabeth Stahl, Chief Technical Strategist, IBM. "Performance is a cornerstone of any application platform and this benchmark record demonstrates IBM's investment in its middleware platform to deliver the client experience needed for digital workloads."

Since 2010, IBM has increased its performance of core Java workloads more than 5.4 times3 on Intel on the compared benchmarks while Oracle only 1.9 times4 allowing IBM to retain the leadership position in Java performance per core since November 20125. Improved performance can be a key driver of a lower total cost of ownership (TCO) from a lower number of servers, lower administration processes, lower electrical power requirements and the need for less real estate.

On IBM Power Systems with POWER8 processors, WebSphere Application Server beat WebLogic 12.1.3 Server running on the latest Oracle SPARC T5-2 per core by 76 percent and WebLogic 12.1.2 Server running on the Oracle Server X5-2 by 79 percent, respectively.6

Additionally, with the IBM z13 and IBM SDK Java8, clients may see up to 50 percent throughput improvement per core on select Java-based apps.7
