Case Study: Accelerating Success for TIBCO Software
This case study will discuss how:
- TIBCO needed to upgrade its aging infrastructure to accommodate business growth and a fast-paced software development cycle
- The TIBCO IT team wanted to move from its proprietary servers to the Linux operating system and Intel7® technology-based servers that would give the company more flexibility to grow
- The new servers had to provide more processing capacity in less space, providing room for expansion
- Company management also wanted to move to a more energy-efficient solution to support TIBCO's Green initiative
TIBCO testing showed that the new Intel processor-based HP blades performed much better than the previous systems. In one test, a complex report that took approximately two hours to complete on the previous servers was completed in just over 20 minutes on the Intel technology-based blades. "We believe a big part of the improved performance is due to the speed of the Intel Xeon processors," says St. Onge. "We're also seeing better performance from the Linux operating system."
