Sun and Financial Fusion claim scalability record

Sun Microsystems has released benchmark figures for the Financial Fusion Web and Wireless System running on Enterprise 450 servers which indicate a capacity to scale to over 8.5 million users.

The results are detailed in a white paper released by the two vendors for the Bank Administration Institute Retail Delivery show currently taking place in New Orleans. The companies claim the results prove the ability of their joint solution to meet the arduous demands of the growing population of Web banking customers.

The performance test outlined in the white paper meets expectations for a projected US Web banking population growth to 30 million total users by 2004, claims Sun. The test indicates that the Financial Fusion Web & Wireless System running on Sun Enterprise 450 servers can process a complex matrix of customer transactions totaling more than five million in any given day - with peak loads of 388,494 transactions processed during the densest hour.

The test configuration assumes a customer base of a financial institution with 4,644,835 users, with the technology handling the demands of 10,791 concurrent users and 90% of all transactions processed in less than two seconds. Extrapolating from these figures, the companies claim a projected capacity to scale over 8.5 million users. The companies say other platforms in the industry have peaked at 4,800 concurrent users, with a projected capacity to scale to a maximum 3.7 million users.

"As consumer acceptance of Internet banking increases, the ability to handle high numbers of users and higher transaction rates is becoming increasingly essential," says Richard Bell, director of eBanking, TowerGroup.
