Hyperion bricht Benchmark

Frankfurt, (PresseBox) - Hyperion Essbase on HP Integrity Servers with Intel ® Itanium ® 2 processors and HP ProLiant Servers Nearly 40 Percent Faster than Previous Industry Benchmarks Delivering the Markets Most Scalable Business Intelligence Solution

Hyperion (Nasdaq: HYSL) today unveiled the results of a record-breaking benchmark on Hyperion Essbase. The industry standard APB-1 benchmark was designed to test the speed, performance and scalability of analytic software. The Hyperion benchmark was conducted in tandem with HP and Intel, and tested the speed, performance and scalability of Hyperion Essbase in a "real world" environment by simulating the system configuration used by a typical enterprise customer. With mid-range HP Integrity and ProLiant servers running Intel® processors, the benchmark demonstrated outstanding scalability and speed of Hyperion Essbase resulting in an AQM (Average Query per Minute) of 119,085 while serving 10,000 concurrent users52;an average of 5.04 seconds per each user query.

The benchmark was conducted on the 64-bit version of Hyperion Essbase Analytic Services. With this release, Hyperion will be the first software vendor to deliver a 64-bit Business Intelligence solution on HP Integrity Servers with Intel Itanium® 2 processors. Hyperion Essbase, the core of Hyperion's business intelligence platform, will deliver even greater enterprise flexibility and scalability to its customers52;more than 4,000 corporations around the world. "We are always working to improve our products' performance and scalability, while ensuring that customers see value from their Hyperion investments," said John Kopcke, CTO of Hyperion. "This is the best OLAP performance ever achieved in the industry, and it was done based on a typical user environment. In addition, the ability to scale to 10,000 concurrent users52;far beyond the needs of typical installations52;allows us to ensure that our customers are getting the best price/performance OLAP server on the market with the scalability to meet even the most demanding customer requirements."

Unlike recent competitive OLAP benchmarks, the Hyperion benchmark utilized hardware that was six times less expensive and configured for an average installation, typical of many enterprises. The environment consisted of Hyperion Essbase on HP Integrity servers based on Intel Itanium 2 processors52;estimated at $95k per server. These servers are architected to meet the requirements of demanding enterprises and technical applications, providing customers with high performance and low cost scalability. The benchmark delivered performance and scalability results that exceeded all recent benchmarks from business intelligence vendors by nearly 40 percent. "This is an extremely impressive benchmark result showing strong performance and scalability," said Mike Schiff of the independent industry analyst firm, Current Analysis. "Rather than souping up the test environment to create a strong AQM, Hyperion benchmarked Essbase on a mid-range server configuration to emulate a realistic enterprise customer deployment." "In addition to the impressive performance, this benchmark demonstrates the scalability of both Essbase and our HP Integrity and ProLiant servers," said Bruno Castejon, Worldwide Business Intelligence Solutions Director, Enterprise Systems Group, HP. "It shows that customers can easily and cost-effectively deploy business intelligence solutions that can scale to meet the current and future needs of their entire global enterprise. This level of scalability is impressive."

"Intel Itanium 2 processor-based systems offer optimal performance for data intensive, mission critical enterprise applications like Business Performance Management," said Lisa Graff, director, Itanium Group, Intel Corporation. "We are glad to be working with Hyperion and HP to help customers maximize their return on investment. The new Intel Itanium processor is designed to deliver industry-leading performance at lower cost and with greater choice than proprietary RISC technologies." The Benchmark Results [NOTE: The following information cannot be edited. This information is required for all public disclosure of the results as designated by the OLAP Council's APB-II specifications]

The benchmark was performed on November 12, 2003, giving Hyperion Essbase an 119,085 AQM in the following environment: ` Four HP Integrity rx5670 servers each with four 1.3 GHz Intel® Itanium® 32 GB of RAM ` Four HP ProLiant DL580G2 client machines each with four Intel® Xeon P2; 2.0GHz CPUs and 3GB RAM ` One HP Storage Works Virtual Array va7410 ` Hyperion Essbase Analytic Services v6.5.4.1 ` 10,000 products ` 5 percent data density ` 10,000 concurrent users

The benchmark was conducted to the specific parameters outlined by the OLAP Council, using its analytical processing benchmark, APB-1 Release II. This benchmark is considered the industry standard for measuring key performance metrics of OLAP applications.
