Innovation and collaborative, synchronized program management for new programs
PLANO, Texas, September 4, 2012 - Siemens PLM Software today announced it 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 and with the help and support of Intel, the test results demonstrate the full enterprise capabilities of the SQL Server 2012 data platform for PLM.
The 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 performance tests were conducted to prove large scale deployment capability to support the continued expansion of Teamcenter deployments across the extended enterprise. 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.
“SQL Server 2012 and Siemens PLM Software’s technologies give customers an interoperable, scalable and cost-efficient IT foundation for PLM deployment,” said Sanjay Ravi, managing director, Worldwide Discrete Manufacturing Industry, Microsoft Corp. “Users can extend PLM to every desktop, eliminate collaboration barriers, simplify IT complexity and ultimately be more productive.”
“As a result of our strong collaboration with Microsoft, we have been able to work together to deliver a comprehensive, enterprise PLM system that maximizes our customers’ return on their PLM investment,” said Eric Sterling, Senior Vice President, General Manager, Lifecycle Collaboration Software, Siemens PLM Software. “The unparalleled ability of Teamcenter to cost effectively start small and scale to tens of thousands of users worldwide, provides our customers a future-proof architecture they will never outgrow. This capability combined with our respective IT and PLM leadership enables us to provide an integrated offering that helps our joint customers leverage PLM technology to make smarter decisions, which results in better products.”
Siemens PLM Software and Microsoft shared equal responsibility in arranging and conducting the performance tests, which utilized 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.
