Sun makes great strides with GlassFish and MySQL on SPECjAppServer2004 -- 2925.18 JOPS

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.

 If you would like more specific details about this particular result, please check out Kevin and Tom's blogs.
