Microsystems White Paper Documents Performance Test Results for Online Banking
BOSTON, Mass. November 28, 2000 - Financial Fusion, Inc. and Sun Microsystems, Inc. announced today that they have released a white paper that analyzes how the Financial Fusion Web & Wireless System(TM) running on Sun Enterprise(TM)450 servers is able to meet the arduous demands of the growing population of Web banking customers. The performance test outlined in the white paper examines the hardware system and software applications offered by Financial Fusion and Sun Microsystems, that financial institutions would require to meet the Online Banking Report's (May 31, 2000) projected Web banking population growth to 30 million total users by 2004. The results of the Financial Fusion and Sun Microsystems performance test prove that a financial institution can deploy this leading, robust solution on the market today without the associated high-cost investment in technology and infrastructure demanded by other Web banking solutions.
The performance test shows that Financial Fusion Web & Wireless System running on Sun Enterprise 450 servers can quickly and reliably process a complex matrix of customer transactions totaling more than five million in any given day - with peak loads of 388,494 transactions processed during the densest hour. The research showed user scalability results leading the industry today with support for a customer base of a financial institution with 4,644,835 users, that could handle the demands of 10,791 concurrent users, with 90% of all transactions processed in less than two seconds in the tested configuration. Additionally, the research demonstrated the capacity to scale to support over 8.5 million users based on the assumptions outlined in the white paper. ...Financial Fusion profile, ...Sun Microsystems profile
