INTEL BENCHMARK SHOWS XAP 12.3 IS 300% FASTER ON INTEL XEON PROCESSOR E5-2623 V4
GigaSpaces XAP 12.3 running on Intel® Xeon® Processor E5-2623 v4, has been shown to be 300% faster than XAP 11 on the best previous Intel processor. The benchmark was run by the fasterAPPS program, a joint initiative by Intel, MPI Europe and Globant, aimed at encouraging migration of financial applications to the latest multicore technology.
GigaSpaces XAP 12.3 has been specifically optimized to take advantage of multi-core environments, allowing highly multithreaded applications to run as efficiently as possible with the least possible resource contention. Specifically, XAP’s in-memory transaction and locking mechanisms have been refactored to use more lightweight locking and synchronization constructs supported by modern processors and later versions of the Java virtual machine. This in turn helped us achieve significant performance gains, as shown in this benchmark.
GigaSpaces XAP 12.3 was benchmarked on Intel’s latest Intel Xeon Processor E5-2623 v4 and achieved the following results:
Note: Running XAP in embedded (local) mode is an order of magnitude faster than accessing it remotely. Users of XAP have the option of running data collocated with business logic (Space-Based Architecture), to enable local access for all transactions, making the high performance figure relevant for most real-life applications.
