Siemens PLM Software
has measured excellent results in performance and scalability tests for its Teamcenter software running on the SQL Server 2012 data platform and Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise operating system.
Conducted in conjunction with Microsoft with support from Intel, the test results demonstrate the full enterprise capabilities of the SQL Server 2012 data platform for PLM.
Siemens PLM Software and Microsoft shared equal responsibility in arranging and conducting the performance tests, which utilised the latest software offerings. Teamcenter was deployed on SQL Server 2012 and Windows Server 2008 R2. Using Intel Xeon processors, 10,000 concurrent Teamcenter users were simulated using a standard Siemens PLM Software testing methodology executing common PLM actions.
Conducted to prove large scale deployment capability to support the continued expansion of Teamcenter deployments across the extended enterprise, the performance testing simulated 10,000 concurrent user sessions, indicating that the system would actually support many of the world’s largest PLM implementations since the number of concurrent users represents only a fraction of the number of actual users.
The tests validate that Teamcenter and SQL Server 2012 are ultimately scalable to support virtually any size implementation and provide a high performance PLM system with a low total cost of ownership.
According to Sanjay Ravi, Managing Director, Worldwide Discrete Manufacturing Industry, Microsoft Corp, SQL Server 2012 and Siemens PLM Software’s technologies give customers an interoperable, scalable and cost-efficient IT foundation for PLM deployment, enabling users to extend PLM to every desktop, eliminate collaboration barriers, simplify IT complexity and ultimately be more productive.
Eric Sterling, Senior Vice President, General Manager, Lifecycle Collaboration Software, Siemens PLM Software comments that their strong collaboration with Microsoft enables them to deliver a comprehensive enterprise PLM system that maximises their customers’ return on their PLM investment. He adds that the unparalleled ability of Teamcenter to cost effectively start small and scale to tens of thousands of users worldwide, provides their customers a future-proof architecture they will never outgrow.
