COMPAQ TESTING DEMONSTRATES SUPERIOR SCALABILITY OF MICROSTRATEGY BUSINESS INTELLIGENCE SOFTWARE Tuesday 27 November 2001 PDF Print A real world data and user scalability test undertaken by Compaq on Microstrategy's business intelligence platform has revealed the software's outstanding capability to meet growing data and evolving user requirements. Results show the software helps reduce companies' costs by enabling them to preserve and leverage investment in existing BI infrastructure. "Leveraging Compaq's leadership clustering capabilities, MicroStrategy adds tremendous value to existing business intelligence infrastructures by increasing operational efficiency and substantially lowering the total cost of ownership for organisations as their databases grow to multi-terabyte levels," said Don Jenkins, Vice President of High Performance Systems Product & Solutions Marketing at Compaq. Using a combination of Compaq ProLiant and AlphaServer systems, Compaq's scalability tests simulated real-world conditions with a range of 400 to 850 concurrent users, where each user simultaneously ran 40 different queries against a 2-terabyte database, one of the largest database sizes used for testing of this kind. The queries represented actual reports such as top-selling product rankings and sales growth rates, as well as running and moving sales averages. The average response time per report was 1.5 seconds. These reports were then distributed through email at a rate of 24 e-mails per second. "It is vitally important that companies are able to build their systems as their business grows to keep up with the demands from an increasing customer base," commented Bob Skeens, UK country manager, MicroStrategy. "One of the compelling attributes of MicroStrategy 7 is its scalability, and it is great to see a company benefiting from what our product can offer. " Compaq and MicroStrategy have been leaders in providing enterprise business intelligence solutions to corporations worldwide.
