ScaleMP Raises the Bar for Java Application Performance

Record-breaking SPECjbb results

ScaleMP Session at Cloud Expo

ScaleMP, a provider of virtualization solutions for high-end computing, today announced record-breaking benchmarking results for x86-based systems using the company’s vSMP Foundation software. An Intel-based system running vSMP Foundation claimed the top result for x86-based systems on the Standard Performance Evaluation Corporation (SPEC) benchmark for evaluating the performance of server-side Java applications (SPECjbb2005). Overall, ScaleMP claimed the second highest ever published result, with the next highest result being 20 percent slower.

“ScaleMP is a leader in the high-performance computing space and will now, with this latest SPECjbb result, further raise the bar for commercial application performance and innovation,” said Shai Fultheim, founder and CTO of ScaleMP. “vSMP Foundation delivers an entirely new software approach to systems scale, demonstrating the powerful capabilities of aggregating commodity x86 servers into large virtual SMPs. Most other solutions on the market require dedicated systems and offer lesser performance at a higher price.”

ScaleMP benchmarking experts aggregated 16 dual-socket M610 blades from Dell with Intel X5570 processors and 48 GB of memory for a large vSMP Foundation 32 socket virtual shared-memory system with a total of 128 cores and 768 GB of RAM. The SPECjbb2005 benchmark represents an order processing application for a wholesale supplier and measures throughput of the underlying Java platform, which is the rate of business operations performed per second (BOPS). The vSMP Foundation-based system used Oracle JRockit JVM and achieved 6,972,897 BOPS. The official results can be viewed on the SPEC.org Web site. Complete details on ScaleMP’s SPECjbb2005 performance can be found here.

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository.

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people. They are not optimized for low- or battery-powered devices or for IoT applications with infrequently transmitted data. Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
