GF + MySQL + Nehalem = 2925.18 JOPS


We have published a new SPECjAppServer 2004 result: 2925.18 JOPS@Standard. Total list price for the configuration, software and hardware together, is $78,834.00, yielding $26.95 per $/JOPS (or, if you are brave enough to go without support, $13.29).

The setup includes GlassFish v2.1 and MySQL 5.1.30 and Sun Fire X2270 and Sun Fire X4170 (both Nehalem-based). Full details in the entries by Madhu, Tom, Kevin and Jennifer.

This is an outstanding result. As Tom describes it:

To give some idea of the actual performance , this configuration of 2 x 8 Core servers and open source , supports a virtual concurrent user load of more than 22,750 web application virtual users and uses > 800 connections to the MySQL 5.1.30 via the Glassfish connection pools!

And this is without the substantial additional improvements from MySQL 5.4, which was not yet available! Stay tuned for further improvements.
