Computer Associates International scored high in the enterprise information portal business, when a hit-per-second assessment by research and consulting firm Doculabs indicated that the company’s CleverPath Portal can support more than 2.4 million users.
“CA’s CleverPath Portal is the one of the leading portal solutions in the world in terms of scalability and functionality, and now we have the statistical backing from Doculabs to prove it,” stated AbdulAziz Al-Salloum, managing director, Computer Associates Middle East operations.

The portal delivers near-linear scalability – its throughput, access speed and ability to support large numbers of users increases proportionally to additional underlying hardware. Such scalability and performance are vitally important to organisations that must support a growing user community and an expanding range and volume of portal content.

“Scalability is a critical issue for portals, since any anticipated productivity gains are likely to be lost if users begin to experience sluggish performance or poor availability as usage increases,” commented Jeetu Patel, executive vice president of research, Doculabs. “By achieving these impressive results, CA’s CleverPath Portal has proven its ability to support high-volume utilisation and to grow with evolving enterprise needs.”

The portal is reported to have delivered 8,500 users per thousand dollars (UPTD), when all the initial hardware and software costs associated with the benchmark were taken into account. The results demonstrated that the three-server CleverPath Portal environment achieved baseline throughput of 1,200 hits-per-second. Using the assumption that 500 hits-per-second represents peak load for a 1 million-user site, CA determined hits-per-second performance of CleverPath Portal, and its near-linear scalability, extrapolates into the ability to support an estimated 2.4 million users.
