6/19/2002 - Sun Microsystems, Inc. and Connextive today announced a record breaking 52,000 transactions/second for Connextive's GSTPA Engine translating to multiple billions of transactions per day in a recent financial performance test. Running on the UltraSPARC[tm] II based Sun Enterprise[tm] 6500 server and Sun StorEdge[tm] disk array; Connextive surpassed its nearest competitors messaging rate established in the year 2000. The performance and scalability demonstrated by this performance test demonstrates the ability to complete trades in 24 hours. Enterprise class performance is a pressing need for large firms, who seek to provide bulge bracket services to their clients.

Connextive demonstrated immense linear scalability on the Sun Enterprise servers and Sun StorEdge disk arrays in a major STP performance test. The tests were performed in a realistic scenario where multiple applications were connected to a central GSTPA engine. Connextive was able to achieve such a high level of sustained throughput due to its quality of service (QoS) architecture that is the backbone of all its financial engines.


Connextive's GSTPA Engine could scale up to 52,000 transactions/second due to its linearly scalable design. Connextive's architecture is designed to maximize all of the systems available resources such as CPU, Memory and Disk. Connextive can scale still higher due to its federated and clustering architecture. Clustering was disabled in this test.
