Microstrategy Delivers 2-Second Response Times to Mobile Users on Apple iPad2
By Mark Dexter
22nd June 2011

The benchmark test results further show that MicroStrategy is capable of sustaining such response times even as query volumes were increased to 265 KiloCycles, which equates to 265,000 round-trip queries per hour. The test ran using MicroStrategy 9.0.2 installed on commodity Intel-based hardware with a typical retail price of $14,620, and using a 64-bit Windows operating system.

Performance Test Details

The performance tests were conducted by adding increasing volumes of load onto the MicroStrategy Airline Performance App, available with the MicroStrategy Mobile App on the iTunes App Store. The application consists of five interconnected screens that allow a total of 54 different analyses. As tested, the application was accessing 25 months of publicly available FAA data hosted in a Microsoft SQL Server installation. The performance tests were conducted using Borland Silk Performer to simulate a typical workload of users accessing the MicroStrategy BI server by driving traffic volume to a target load according to a predesigned usage pattern.

Response times observed are specific to the hardware configuration and query loads used in the performance tests. The test application has been tuned following best practices for system design and optimization as explained in the High Performance BI Webcast Series:http://www.microstrategy.com/high-performance-bi/webcast-series.asp. Customer experience may differ from MicroStrategy's test results.

MicroStrategy's High Performance Initiative

In April 2010, MicroStrategy announced the launch of its High Performance Initiative, which includes a dedicated team of performance engineers and a multi-million dollar state-of-the-art research laboratory equipped with the latest database hardware, software, and performance testing tools. MicroStrategy's engineering team runs hundreds of performance tests each week to benchmark software performance, further improve scale and performance, and uncover configuration options and design techniques to deliver higher performance for customers.

For nine consecutive years, MicroStrategy customers have analyzed the largest data volumes as compared to customers of all other BI products, according to The BI Survey, the largest independent survey of the BI market. In the latest BI Survey, 37% of MicroStrategy customers analyze over 1 terabyte vs. an average of 9.7% of BI customers in general. MicroStrategy's customers have some of the largest and most sophisticated BI deployments in the industry.

"These findings demonstrate MicroStrategy's continued commitment to deliver the highest levels of performance while fully leveraging the latest advances in mobile technology," said MicroStrategy Chief Operating Officer Sanju Bansal. "MicroStrategy customers can confidently deploy mobile BI solutions to large user populations while delivering the fast response times that people expect from their mobile devices."
