JavaWorld: The need for speed, stability

Tower Technology’s TowerJ 3.1.4 for Linux dominates 15
other VMs in both performance and scalability, according to the
latest VolanoMark 2.1.2 benchmarks published on October 3 by Volano

“Moreover, compared to previous VolanoMark results published on
May 31…raw server-side VM performance on the benchmark improved
for all vendors and platforms. This trend should continue as
vendors compete to produce the top VM.”

“Even with the increased performance, however, the network
scalability tests — with two exceptions — show disappointing
results, with some VMs incapable of handling anything but the
simplest concurrent connection levels.”
