Cambridge, England, Zeus Technology Limited announces new world record
levels of web server performance.

Full Text: 

Silicon Graphics Inc, Mountain View, California, in conjunction with
Zeus Technology Limited, Cambridge, England, have shattered a world
record for web server performance, only recently set by Zeus
Technology and IBM.

The record breaking machine, an 8 processor Origin 2000 running Zeus
Server software, achieved a SPECweb96 rating of 6200.  This latest
result has ousted the former SPECweb96 world-record holder, an IBM 12
processor RS/6000 (4075 SPECweb96), by over 50 percent.

Even more impressive is the fact that the result also beat a 10
processor Sun Ultra Enterprise 4000 running on Sun Web Server by over
65 percent (3746 SPECweb96), and an 8 processor Sun Ultra 4000 running
Netscape Enterprise by over 120% (2796 SPECweb96).

The results, which are backed by the SPEC, the independent
benchmarking organisation, demonstrate that Zeus Web Server software
is the best choice for high-volume mission critical web sites.

Zeus software has unparallelled scalability on today's large SMP
machines, allowing a company's servers to more than keep up with the
demands placed on them by the exponential growth of the Internet.

Zeus Technology provides web-hosting companies with high-performance,
mission-critical, easily administrable, feature rich web server
software. Its mission is to quickly establish itself as Europe's
leading vendor of Internet server software.

The latest version of Zeus Web Server software is available on: IRIX,
HP-UX, Digital Unix, IBM AIX, Solaris and Linux. Support for NT is
planned for later this year.
