New Sun Messaging server benchmark results published

Sun Messaging Server has published a new benchmark on the SPECmail2008 benchmark at spec.org. The details of the benchmark are available at http://www.spec.org/mail2008/results/res2009q1/mail2008-20081203-00002.html. Obviously, this is not on the new Sun Communication Suite 6, but things should definitely be even better in the new version ;-) But, if you see the spec.org website, there are NO benchmarks from any other vendor !!
Please see http://blogs.sun.com/bmseer/entry/world_record_specmail2008_sun_fire for more details on the benchmark and the highlights.

The highlights from bmseer's blog:
  • The Sun Fire X4540 server, equipped with two quad-core 2.3GHz Opteron 2356, Sun Java System Messaging Server 6.2 JES4, the ZFS File System and Solaris 10 Operating System, has achieved the overall record of 3300 SPECmail_MSEnt2008 SMTP and IMAP users at 15,868 SPECmail2008 Sessions/hour.
  • This benchmark result clearly demonstrates that a single Sun's X4540 with integrated storage, together with the Sun Java System Messaging Server 6.2 with ZFS on Solaris can support a large, enterprise level IMAP Mail server environment at the highest level of throughput performance, representing a compact, low cost and low power solution.
