Fujitsu PRIMEPOWER UNIX Server Achieves World Record Performance in SPECjbb2005 Java Server Benchmark


SUNNYVALE, Calif., Feb. 2 / -- Fujitsu Computer Systems today announced that PRIMEPOWER 2500, the high-end model of its PRIMEPOWER® server line, achieved a new world record in the Standard Performance Evaluation Corporation (SPEC®)(1) Java Business Benchmark 2005 (SPECjbb®2005), with performance of 1,157,619 business operations per second(2).

Fujitsu achieved the record with a 128-way PRIMEPOWER 2500 server using SPARC64® V processors, an internally developed high-performance, highly reliable processor, operating at 2.08 GHz. The results were made public on January 25, 2006 by the SPEC.

Fujitsu also announced the immediate availability of processor enhancements for the PRIMEPOWER entry-level and mid-range platforms resulting in performance gains of between 6 and 35 percent(3).

The PRIMEPOWER 250 and 450 servers now come with 1.65 GHz/3M SLC and 1.98 GHz/3M SLC SPARC64 V processor options. For the PRIMEPOWER 650 and 850 servers, a 2.16 GHz/4M SLC SPARC64 V processor option is available.

The PRIMEPOWER family of servers, from 2-processor systems through 128-processor systems, are leading the way in the field of UNIX® severs with their outstanding performance records. This leading position in terms of performance is accompanied by an outstanding level of data processing reliability in the UNIX RISC server market. PRIMEPOWER servers are not only suited for general use, but also for meeting the requirements of data centers and server consolidation. They offer an ideal range of product features in terms of flexibility, reliability, performance and scalability while meeting the constant demand for reductions in overall costs. PRIMEPOWER servers are one of the key building blocks that support the Fujitsu TRIOLE(TM) strategy for optimizing IT.

SPECjbb2005 is a benchmark test developed by the SPEC to evaluate the performance of servers running Java-based applications. It simulates the processing of actual wholesale industry business tasks, such as ordering, shipping, receipts and payment processing, inventory management and customer data management. Thus, the results can be used as an index of processing performance that reflects real-world business operations.
