Unisys 8-Way NT-Based Server Achieves Exchange Server Record Performance

Unisys Corp. (www.unisys.com) today announced that the Unisys e-@ction Enterprise Server ES5085R supported the highest amount of Microsoft Exchange e-mail traffic ever measured on any server. The Unisys ES5085R server achieved an Exchange MAPI Messaging Benchmark (MMB) of 32,700, surpassing the previous MMB record of 32,500. The record-setting server was equipped with eight 550-MHz Intel Pentium III Xeon processors with 2 MB of Level 2 cache, as well as Unisys Enterprise Software Suite (ESS) value-added technology.

The Microsoft Exchange Server MAPI Messaging Benchmark is the standard method of measuring a system's performance in a Microsoft Exchange software environment. It measures throughput in terms of a specific profile of user actions, executed over an eight-hour day. It represents mail traffic from a typical corporate e-mail user, including common daily mail tasks such as send, browse, read and forward, as well as scheduling tasks and distribution list usage.

The success of the ES5085R in handling the large volume of traffic in the test positions Unisys in the emerging trend of consolidating large numbers of e-mail servers into a single, multi-processor server in order to save space, costs and to simplify systems administration. The 32-processor Unisys e-@ction Enterprise Server ES7000 will enable enterprises to consolidate servers into a single, partitonable platform that acommodates multiple operating environments.

Unisys Enterprise Software Suite (ESS) value-added technology equips the ES5085R eight-way server with an array of new systems management, hardware and middleware products to optimize Windows NT Server performance, ease of administration, availability and interoperability with heterogeneous systems.
