Fujitsu M10 Achieves World-Record Performance Running Java Application

Results demonstrate Fujitsu M10's ultra-fast response performance, a critical advantage in the era of big data

Tokyo, July 23, 2013 - (JCN Newswire) - Fujitsu today announced that the UNIX Server Fujitsu M10 (sold as SPARC M10 by Fujitsu in Japan) set a new world performance record (as of July 23, 2013) on the SPECjbb2013 (SPEC Java Business Benchmark 2013) Java application benchmark, achieving a performance of 168,127 operations per second(1).

SPECjbb2013 is designed to measure Java application performance including response performance, which is essential for real-time processing. The new results demonstrate the Fujitsu M10's unparalleled response performance, a necessity in the era of big data.

Developed by the Standard Performance Evaluation Corporation (SPEC), SPECjbb2013 is an industry-standard benchmark used to evaluate the performance of servers running Java applications. This benchmark measurement model consists of processes that simulate actual business operations, such as receipt of orders, deliveries, payment processing, and inventory management. The benchmark employs two metrics: max-jOPS(2), a measurement environment in which there are no limitations in terms of response, and critical-jOPS, an environment that approximates actual working conditions in which time to respond is limited.

The measurement was performed using two Fujitsu M10-4S configurations-a 4 CPU and a 16 CPU configuration-that utilized SPARC64 X processors developed by Fujitsu. The 16 CPU configuration achieved the world's highest performance on both critical-jOPS and max-JOPS. In particular, the result of 168,127 operations per second for critical-jOPS, which is an indicator of response performance, was over seven times faster than the second place result.

In addition, the 4 CPU configuration achieved performance for both metrics that surpasses products with equivalent processor configurations. For critical-jOPS, the server's exceptional measurement result of 50,562 operations per second was more than twice that of other server products of the same class.

By achieving performance levels that surpass competitors in both the 16 CPU and 4 CPU configurations, the Fujitsu M10-4S has illustrated its potential for meeting a wide range of customer system requirements. Moreover, with its core-level CPU Activation feature-which enables fine-grained scaling of CPU performance in units of two cores-and building block architecture, the Fujitsu M10-4S can initially be part of a small-scale deployment and gradually scaled up to a 64 CPU configuration in accordance with the growth of a customer's business.

In addition to significantly helping customers to optimize their total cost of ownership with this unique dynamic scaling, the Fujitsu M10-4S supports customers in making timely business decisions through its unparalleled response performance. This, in turn, provides customers with a critical advantage in the era of big data.
