LONDON, Jan. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Alfresco Software, Inc., the leader in open source enterprise content management (ECM), today announced that it reached and exceeded the 100 million document mark in an independently certified benchmark test of Alfresco Enterprise 2.1, conducted by Unisys Corporation, in compliance with predetermined benchmark rules.

LONDON, Jan. 8 /PRNewswire/ — Alfresco Software, Inc., the leader in open source enterprise content management (ECM), today announced that it reached and exceeded the 100 million document mark in an independently certified benchmark test of Alfresco Enterprise 2.1, conducted by Unisys Corporation, in compliance with predetermined benchmark rules.

The benchmark was conducted on an eight-way Unisys ES7000/one Enterprise Server employing dual core Intel Xeon processor technology, using a MySQL database and a Red Hat Enterprise Linux operating system. The benchmark demonstrated the readiness of Alfresco for enterprise-class ECM with:

— Continuous, transactionally safe upload of more than 100 million objects — Linear scalability of 140 objects per second — Sub-second access times from standard clients – shared drive, file transfer protocol and web client — Linear scalability for large repository search

"This benchmark drew on Unisys' long experience providing integrated, enterprise-class ECM solutions with a range of partners," said Anthony Gold, vice president and general manager, Open Source Business, Unisys. "Modeling the most common customer transactions in an environment that would exceed most customer sizing requirements, this benchmark demonstrates the performance capability that Alfresco 2.1 brings to the requirements of large enterprise customers."

"Alfresco was designed from day one to offer the industry-leading ECM scalability and high-availability required by the Global 2000," said John Newton, CTO, Alfresco Software. "This allows Alfresco to deliver linear scalability without artificial limits forcing content to be spread over multiple site collections with severe performance degradation as the size of the repository increases."

Alfresco is the open source ECM of choice of the Global 2000. The company now has more than 300 customers, including the American Stock Exchange, Boise Cascade, Christian Science Monitor, Informa and the Nebraska State Legislature. The community version of Alfresco's open source ECM has been downloaded more than 700,000 times.

In late 2006, Unisys became Alfresco's first Platinum-level Systems Integration partner, adding the Alfresco open source software suite and relationship to its strong global ECM solution and partner portfolio that today serves hundreds of major clients. Unisys also became an Alfresco Platinum Reseller early in 2007.

Alfresco and Unisys expect to conduct further benchmark testing in the near future. For more information about the results of the Alfresco Enterprise 2.1 benchmark test, please cut and paste the following URL into a browser:
