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.
