Fujitsu Siemens Computers retakes hotly-contested SPECweb benchmark record
PRIMERGY RX600 S4 sets the new benchmark as the world’s fastest web server
Munich, The lead in the hotly-contested SPECweb benchmark has been taken again by a PRIMERGY server from Fujitsu Siemens Computers. Results published today (March 12) confirm that the PRIMERGY RX600 S4 has reconfirmed its position as the world’s best performing web server.
Fujitsu Siemens Computers continues to come out on top in this fast volley of high benchmark scores. Just three months ago, the company held the previous SPECweb2005 world record with a score of 47,504. Then, a US server vendor took back the record with a score of 50,013. Now Fujitsu Siemens Computers has set another new world record with a score of 51,395, retaking the laurels for the SPECweb benchmark.
SPECweb2005 evaluates servers’ performance, testing requests for static and dynamic pages and simulating different workload scenarios. These tests, under official lab conditions, provide an objective and representative benchmark for measuring a system’s ability to act as a web server.
In real world terms, choosing a SPEC record-holding server means IT managers can be confident about system performance. Fierce rivalry for the SPECweb benchmark has helped to increase the tuning of enterprise web servers to deliver ever-better performance, meaning that IT managers looking to upgrade web servers now have even faster and more efficient models from which to choose.
Just in the past year, web server benchmark performance has increased from the previous record of 42,783 set by Fujitsu Siemens Computers in June 2008, to the company’s current record of 51,395. This is a score increase of 8,612 or more than 20 percent in less than a year.
Full details of the test results will be available on the SPEC website from March 12 at: http://www.spec.org/web2005/results/web2005.html.
