Coyote Point Offers Application Balancing for Virtual Servers
Performance was tested using a Spirent Avalanche 2900 configured to generate traffic load on the E650GX. The goal of the performance testing was to rate layer 7 HTTP transactions per second, layer 7 HTTPS throughput, layer 4 maximum concurrent connections and layer 4 connections per second. Those metrics are a good indicator of the processing power of the device, as well as the overall capacity of the device.
Layer 4 connections per second: 160,000 CPS
Layer 4 maximum concurrent connections: 17.5 million
Layer 7 HTTP transactions per second: 110,000 TPS
Layer 7 HTTP throughput: 1,300 Mbps
Layer 7 HTTPS transactions per second: 14,000 TPS
Layer 7 HTTPS throughput: 825 Mbps

With all the industry talk about the benefits of Linux on Power and all the performance advantages offered by its open architecture, you may be considering a move in that direction. If you are thinking about analytics, big data and cloud computing, you would be right to evaluate Power. The idea of using commodity x86 hardware and replacing it every three years is an outdated cost model. It doesn’t consider the total cost of ownership, and it doesn’t consider the advantage of real processing power, high-availability and multithreading like a demon.
This ebook takes a look at some of the practical applications of the Linux on Power platform and ways you might bring all the performance power of this open architecture to bear for your organization. There are no smoke and mirrors here—just hard, cold, empirical evidence provided by independent sources. I also consider some innovative ways Linux on Power will be used in the future.Get the Guide
