New Sun Messaging server benchmark results published

Sun Messaging Server has published a new benchmark on the SPECmail2008 benchmark at The details of the benchmark are available at Obviously, this is not on the new Sun Communication Suite 6, but things should definitely be even better in the new version 😉 But, if you see the website, there are NO benchmarks from any other vendor !!
Please see for more details on the benchmark and the highlights.

The highlights from bmseer’s blog:

  • The Sun Fire X4540 server, equipped with two quad-core 2.3GHz Opteron 2356, Sun Java System Messaging Server 6.2 JES4, the ZFS File System and Solaris 10 Operating System, has achieved the overall record of 3300 SPECmail_MSEnt2008 SMTP and IMAP users at 15,868 SPECmail2008 Sessions/hour.
  • This benchmark result clearly demonstrates that a single Sun’s X4540 with integrated storage, together with the Sun Java System Messaging Server 6.2 with ZFS on Solaris can support a large, enterprise level IMAP Mail server environment at the highest level of throughput performance, representing a compact, low cost and low power solution.
