Aras announced the results of independent testing conducted by Logic 20/20 for the scalability of Aras Innovator 10 running Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Enterprise Edition on HP ProLiant servers with the HP ioDrive2 Duo IO accelerator technology from Fusion-io. According to the company, results validate optimal performance and resource utilization for 500,000 named users with 125,000 concurrent users.
“SQL Server 2012 is designed to provide the performance and scalability required by the most demanding mission-critical applications whether they are running in the data center or the cloud,” said Simon Floyd, director of product lifecycle management solutions at Microsoft. “Together Aras, Microsoft, HP and Fusion-io deliver predictable scalability, high user concurrency and performance required by the world’s largest manufacturers to compete and innovate in a fast changing global market place.”
Tests were conducted on Aras Innovator 10 running SQL Server 2012 Enterprise Edition with standard Microsoft recommended settings and best practices. HP ProLiant DL980G7 and DL585G7 servers were used, and the DL980G7 was tested both with and without the HP ioDrive2 Duo IO accelerator technology from Fusion-io. Testing occurred with 500,000 named users at 25,000, 75,000 and 125,000 concurrent user loads with real-world scenarios and data structures to simulate actual usage.
“We recognize that increasing product complexity, global design teams and outsourcing strategies are all forcing the need for greater application scalability,” said Peter Schroer, President of Aras. “Our architectural approach fundamentally rethinks the platform design in order to provide greater flexibility to customize applications while at the same time enabling a new level of scalability today and into the future.”
