Efficient performance of your application servers is a key concern for both IT and business leaders - as the middlemen, they connect front-end user interfaces with back-end databases to ensure streamlined processes and minimal downtime.
However, performance isn't the only thing you should consider when choosing an application server - there's total cost of ownership (TCO), ease of administration, hardware costs, security, and more.
Check out this white paper for a comprehensive TCO analysis of two major application servers, IBM WebSphere Application Server v 8.5 and JBoss EAP v 6. Inside, compare various types of costs associated with each server, and see how the two stack up in other areas including:
- Installation and configuration
- Security administration
- Failover and speed of recovery
- And many more!
