BEA Systems Sets New World Records With Sun Microsystems Sun Fire(TM) T1000 and T2000 Servers Featuring CoolThreads(TM) Technology

Announces WebLogic Promotional Pricing and General Availability BEA JRockit(R) JVM on Solaris OS

SAN JOSE, Calif., Dec. 6 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- BEA Systems, Inc. , today announced it set new world performance records with the Sun Microsystems' Sun Fire(TM) T1000 and T2000 servers. BEA is delivering specialized enterprise infrastructure software, including BEA WebLogic 9.0 and the industry's fastest JVM JRockit, on the new breakthrough Sun Fire servers, enabling BEA to pass along to its customers the tremendous price/performance benefits and cost savings resulting from the new Sun Fire systems' low energy consumption. Visit bea.com/coolbea for more information.

BEA WebLogic Server on the Sun Fire T2000 was 31 percent faster than the performance of a 4-way 1.6GHz competitive server on the dual node SPECjAppServer2004. The BEA WebLogic and Sun Fire T2000 server achieved the overall performance world record on all two node results.

The record-setting BEA WebLogic Server 9.0 is designed to help IT administrators and developers increase productivity, reduce cost of IT projects and decrease downtime. It features the world's first hot swappable application technology enabling customers to virtually eliminate the downtime associated with routine maintenance and application upgrades. The product is designed to help enable businesses to focus on moving toward Service Oriented Architectures (SOA). Its unique enterprise-grade kernel, which features clustering, security, management, caching and virtual machine technologies, is designed to help make WebLogic Server faster, more scalable, and reliable than any application server in today's market. WebLogic Server's high-performance kernel supports blended application development and deployment for multiple programming models, which can help provide developers with the flexibility to choose the right application framework for their needs. This includes support for J2EE 1.4, Apache Beehive, Web services and several other frameworks. And, as a part of its blended approach to mixing and matching open source and commercial software, BEA plans to offer blended BEA WebLogic management and deployment technologies designed to provide automated management and production-level support for customers using Apache Tomcat. All of these capabilities can help decrease equipment and labor costs required to build and sustain applications and reduce the time and risks affiliated with IT projects.

BEA JRockit 5.0 has been specifically architected for use by large-scale, mission-critical, server-side applications running on high-performing Intel(R) processor-based servers, including 64-bit support for the Intel(R) Xeon(R) and Intel(R) Itanium(R) processors. The software's performance superiority is driving rapid adoption throughout the industry -- JRockit has shown up to 30 percent better performance in the SPECjbb2005 industry standard JVM benchmark, while using significantly less hardware than the closest competitor. BEA is expected to announce at BEAWorld Beijing that the latest release of BEA JRockit 5.0 is designed to provide support for other platforms, including the Solaris OS for UltraSPARC-based systems.

BEA also announced today promotional pricing for the new Sun servers. With the restructured pricing, BEA and Sun are teaming to help provide enterprise customers with the opportunity to deploy service-oriented applications now at a lower cost, without sacrificing performance or reliability. Together, BEA and Sun have created an application infrastructure platform that is designed to enable enterprise customers to successfully build, extend and integrate applications to increase business flexibility, reduce IT complexity and lower costs. More information can be found on bea.com.

"Enterprises have always counted on BEA for high-performance software, and the BEA WebLogic on Sun T2000 system benchmarks released today further extends our performance leadership," said Rob Levy, chief technology officer, BEA Systems, Inc. "Multi-core and thread acceleration technologies are at the sweet spot of system design -- today's launch underscores this continued trend in the industry. In support of the Sun launch, we've announced WebLogic promotional pricing and the general availability of BEA JRockit -- the industry's fastest JVM -- on Solaris."
