* Sun Fire T2000 server using Sun JavaTM System Web Server 6.1 SP5 achieved a world record SPECweb2005 and demonstrated 1.7 times the performance advantage over the four-way IBM eServer p5 550 with 4.3 times higher performance per watt while occupying half the space. In addition, the Sun Fire T2000 server delivers more than three times the performance of the two-way 3.8 GHz Xeon-based IBM eServer xSeries x346 while delivering over 4.1 times higher performance per watt.
* Sun Fire T2000 server using BEA Weblogic Server was 1.3 times faster than the performance of a four-way 1.6 GHz Itanium two-based HP rx4600 server on the dual node SPECjAppServer2004. The Sun Fire T2000 achieved the overall performance world record on all two node results.
* Sun Fire T2000 server using Sun JavaTM System Application Server 8.2 Performance Edition achieved world record price/performance on the application tier beating a four-way 1.6GHz Itanium two-based HP rx4600 server on the dual node SPECjAppServer2004.
* Sun Fire T2000 server, equipped with the UltraSPARC T1 processor achieved overall price/performance leadership on the Lotus R6iNotes Domino 7 benchmark. On IBM's own benchmark the Sun Fire T2000 beats the price/performance of the POWER5+ based IBM p5 p550Q by 27 percent. In addition, Sun has more than twice the price/performance advantage and a nine percent performance advantage over the POWER5 based IBM p5 570 server.
* In a demonstration addressing portal server workload, the Sun Fire T2000 server beats the performance of the 2GHz Xeon-based Dell 6650 server by running on the new Sun JavaTM System Portal Server 7, with 6 times more logins per second while providing 33 percent capacity headroom on Sun Fire T2000 Server versus zero percent on Dell. This new release of the Java System Portal Server allows users to easily create interactive communities of users and services, building "community" portals populated with collaborative content including RSS feeds, blogs and wikis. Additional information on the Java System Portal Server 7 is expected from Sun in the near future.
* Sun Fire T1000 beats the performance of the Dell SC1425 by over two times, while consuming half the power. In comparison to the IBM p520 two-way Power 5+ server, the Sun Fire T1000 server delivered 1.5 times higher performance in four times less space and at 3.7 times performance per watt.
* Sun Fire T2000 server beats the performance of the 1.9 GHz POWER5+ based IBM p5 550 four-way on the SPECjbb2005 and was more than 1.6 times faster than the 2.8 GHz dual-core IBM x346. HP and Fujitsu have not published results on this new benchmark that demonstrates JavaTM server performance.
