Today, we released some new results for SPECjAppServer2004 that demonstrate Sun's leadership in price / performance. Full details of the report can be found here. The results we published achieved 2925.18 SPECjAppServer2004 JOPS@Standard using an all open source stack from Sun -- Glassfish , MySQL and OpenSolaris (with ZFS), on the new Sun / Intel Nehalem based servers.
Back in November 2008, we released a SPECjAppServer 2004 number of 1197.50 SPECjAppServer2004JOPS@Standard.This latest result, of 2925.18 SPECjAppServer2004 JOPS@Standard, is more than double that previous best. In addition to pure performance improvements, this new results, which has a total cost of acquisition (HW + SW without support) of $38,880.00 (look here to see the full bill of materials) also has a lower price/performance than the previous result. If you look at dollar / JOPS@Standard, the new result comes in at $13.29, while the result from November was $13.46 / JOPS@Standard. If you include support, which factors in software costs, the dollar / JOPS@Standard is $26.95 (the full bill of materials can be found here). In all aspects, Sun / MySQL are making strides to improve both price and performance of their stack.
Stay tuned as we will continue to demonstrate more leaps in this area.
