IBM WebSphere server offers 31% better performance against Oracle WebLogic

Enterprise IT vendor IBM today said its WebSphere Application Server running on dual Intel Xeon Processor E5-2600 v3 demonstrated 31 percent better performance on per core basis against 18800.76 SPECjEnterprise20101 EjOPS result from Oracle using WebLogic 12.1.3 Server running on Oracle Server X5-2 with dual Intel Xeon Processor E5-2600 v3.

In fact, IBM’s WebSphere application server beat Oracle’s WebLogic server in per core, per processor and per system comparisons on the latest Intel Xeon Processor E5-2600 v3 in a SPECjEnterprise2010 benchmark result.

IBM published single application server result of 19,282.14 SPECjEnterprise2010 EjOPS for the application tier and the database on industry standard servers running Intel Xeon Processor E5-2600 v3.

“In a real world, full system benchmark, IBM WebSphere Application Server outperformed Oracle on per core, per processor and per system comparisons,” said Elisabeth Stahl, chief technical strategist, IBM.

Since 2010, IBM has increased its performance of core Java workloads more than 5.4 times on Intel on the compared benchmarks while Oracle 1.9 times allowing IBM to retain the leadership position in Java performance per core since November 2012.

Improved performance can be a key driver of a lower total cost of ownership (TCO) from a lower number of servers, lower administration processes, lower electrical power requirements and the need for less real estate.

On IBM Power Systems with POWER8 processors, WebSphere Application Server  beat WebLogic 12.1.3 Server running on the latest Oracle SPARC T5-2 per core by 76 percent and WebLogic 12.1.2 Server running on the Oracle Server X5-2 by 79 percent, respectively.

Additionally, with the IBM z13 and IBM SDK Java8, clients may see up to 50 percent throughput improvement per core on select Java-based apps.

IBM WebSphere application server serves applications – mobile, Web, cloud or enterprise applications – from the front office to the back office to support systems of engagement. It can help clients offer richer user experiences through the delivery of applications.
