BEA Systems Inc. announced
that its JRockit JVM (Java Virtual Machine) has set another record,
by netting a SPECjbb2000 benchmark result of 861,647 operations per
The result, published last week by SPEC, a non-profit organization
that maintains and endorses standardized benchmarks, was achieved using
a Fujitsu PRIMEQUEST 480 server with 32 Intel Itanium 2
processors and the JRockit JVM 5.0. The result was the best 32-way
score on non-SMT/HT hardware. It was also better than any result
produced by Sun's HotSpot JVM on a machine of the same configuration.
"Data center administrators are constantly looking for ways to
increase performance while simultaneously driving down costs, and one
key component in that struggle is deploying the best JVM," said Guy
Churchward, general manager of the Java Runtime Products Group (JRPG) at BEA
JRockit, proven to be the fastest JVM on Intel Xeon and
Intel Itanium2 processors, is also designed to provide
interoperability across multiple hardware and operating system
configurations. JRockit can help make it possible to gain optimal
performance for Java applications deployed on 32- bit or 64-bit
architectures of both the Microsoft Windows and Linux operating system
"We have collaborated actively with BEA for years to ensure their
software is optimized down to the JVM-level to take full advantage of
our processor architectures," said Shannon Poulin, enterprise platform
marketing director at Intel. "The result of this ongoing collaboration
a fast and robust infrastructure platform that is designed to allow IT
departments to be more responsive to the needs of their businesses and
provide an ideal foundation for service-oriented architectures."
