Press Release Rome, Italy, - December 5, 2002 – ERIS4 s.r.l.’s WARP4™ product processes 185 million transactions per hour in sustained operations trials on dual-CPU entry-level Sun server. ERIS4 s.r.l., a worldwide provider of super powerful cross-industry rating solutions, announced today the conclusion of a series of benchmarking trials aimed at measuring throughput, latency and reliability of WARP4™ on a dual-CPU entry-level class of Sun servers. The trials were performed on entry-level Sun servers with two processors at a Sun Microsystems, Inc. benchmarking lab in Italy against a number of pre- and post-paid content-based management scenarios. During the trials, ERIS4 s.r.l. recorded sustained transaction volumes of 185 million transactions per hour. The trials included the management of Authorization, Rating and Advice of Charge requests on a comprehensive subscriber database containing 10 million active subscribers. The trials incorporated very complex rating scenarios taking into account customer status and enabled complex discounting. During the trials, latency of 5 milliseconds or less was recorded for sustained operations of 12 hours and more. Additionally, the trials explored WARP4™’s ability to perform in a constrained ...

WARP4™ GOES BEYOND THE HORIZON IN EXTENSIVE PERFORMANCE BENCHMARK TRIALS.
Press Release Rome, Italy, - December 5, 2002 –
ERIS4 s.r.l.’s WARP4™ product processes 185 million transactions per hour in sustained operations trials ondual-CPU entry-levelSun server.
ERIS4 s.r.l., a worldwide provider of super powerful cross-industry rating solutions, announced today the conclusion of a series of benchmarking trials aimed at measuring throughput, latency and reliability of WARP4™ on a dual-CPU entry-level class of Sun servers.
The trials were performed on entry-level Sun servers with two processors at a Sun Microsystems, Inc. benchmarking lab in Italy against a number of pre- and post-paid content-based management scenarios.During the trials, ERIS4 s.r.l. recorded sustained transaction volumes of 185 million transactions per hour.
The trials included the management of Authorization, Rating and Advice of Charge requests on a comprehensive subscriber database containing 10 million active subscribers. Thetrials incorporated very complex rating scenarios taking into account customer status and enabled complex discounting.During the trials, latency of 5 milliseconds or less was recorded for sustained operations of 12 hours and more.
Additionally, the trials explored WARP4™’s ability to perform in a constrained environment on the same dual-CPU configuration.In such a constrained environment WARP4™ processed more than 31 million transactions per hour per server, equal to 8,500 transactions per second per processor.This performance is 7 times better than any performance figures released by ERIS4 s.r.l.’s competitors.
“We wanted to measure WARP4™’s capability in a real-life scenario with limited processing power”, said Augusto Coppola, CEO of ERIS4 s.r.l. “The reality is that most benchmarks are meaningless since they assume infinite budgets to purchase infinite amount of hardware and most companies do not have such infinite budgets.We already knew that WARP4™ could exceed the performance claimed by our competitor in such artificial scenarios with mid- to high-range server with high number of processors.The critical question was whether we, using an inexpensive entry-level Sun server with only two processors, could outperform our competitors’ claim of performance made by using high-end servers with a 24 or more processors.We could and we did!”Mr. Coppola added, “Using Sun Microsystems’ servers was a critical part of the trials as it allowed us to focus our reliability tests on WARP4™ without having to worry about the reliability of the underlying operating environment as the Java Sun platform is proven enterprise-grade reliable. I would like to extend my heartfelt gratitude to Sun Microsystems for providing us with the facilities and support.”

“We have not only demonstrated that we can meet the processing demands of tier one enterprises on inexpensive platforms, but we have also demonstrated that we can achieve pre-paid performance with post-paid complexity,“ added Per Jacobsen, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for ERIS4 s.r.l. “This is critical to the evolving complex economy where more and more supply systems are evolving towards a prepaid purchasing model.If, for performance reasons, complex-rating rules cannot be implemented in prepaid environments, introduction of new innovative marketing initiatives in such prepaid environments will not be possible.Ultimately, this will result in lack of competition – hurting both consumers and enterprises.Additionally, we are pleased to note that even on entry-level servers, WARP4™ maintains record-breaking low latency for complex operations such as Advice of Charge and Authorization. ”
