Crystal Enterprise 8.5 Baseline
Benchmark: IBM AIX
Broad scale business intelligence is rapidly becoming a necessity in
competitive organizations. As the size of deployment and degree of
dependence on the system increases (often dictated by extranet
deployments and mission-critical information delivery requirements),
predictability becomes fundamental criteria in evaluating the strength
of a business intelligence system. Like other key systems in your data
center, you should expect a business intelligence system to demonstrate
predictable scalability and a compelling cost/performance equation.
Crystal Enterprise 8.5 was designed from the ground up to operate as a
mission-critical component of your IT infrastructure – demonstrating
the scalability, performance and reliability required to support
company-wide business intelligence initiatives.
Given a complex, multi-dimensional user load, Crystal Enterprise
demonstrates outstanding scalability and performance.
• Supports 75 concurrent users/processor with less than 5 second
average response time for all operations.
• Scales in nearly perfect linear fashion (95% efficiency gains)
within a cluster of machines or on a single machine.
• Handles over 47 million requests/day, resulting in over 3.9 million
pages of content.
