CMP Media's Independent Testing Services Validate Sarvega's XML Guardian Gateway and XML Speedway Accelerator Performance Claims

Dec 14, 2004

Independent Testing Services powered by Network Computing Labs™ (ITS) recently completed an independent validation testing report for the Sarvega XML Guardian Gateway and XML Speedway Accelerator products. During September and October 2004, ITS tested and verified that the XML Guardian Gateway can sustain XML Signatures or Encryption at over 1,700 transactions per second on small 2KB documents and support very large documents up to 50MB. For XML transformation and validation, the XML Speedway demonstrated performance exceeding 6,000 transactions per second, 800 Mbps throughput, and capable of processing 300MB XML documents.

"Using real world test cases, we tested XML Web services security and acceleration at very high transaction rates and widely diverse sizes using a single Sarvega appliance against ten dual-processor Pentium 4 Xeon servers. The results of the Sarvega products demonstrated new levels for performance not before seen from a single product." said Kevin Cooke, Director of Independent Testing Services.

"These tests further validate what our customers have found - Sarvega's purpose-built XESOS™ technology, the basis for all our products. This technology enables the XML Guardian Gateway and XML Speedway Accelerator to outperform ASIC and software-based solutions," said Girish Juneja, SVP of product management and co-founder of Sarvega. "Further, as XESOS™ technology is flexible and portable, our customers enjoy the long-term investment protection and easy upgrade path for emerging standards."

The Sarvega XML Guardian Security Gateway is a high performance XML Web Services security solution built from the ground-up with a "Security DNA" to provide complete standards-compliant Web Services security and sophisticated XML intrusion protection capability to mission-critical XML Web Services deployments. The Sarvega XML Speedway Accelerator addresses critical XSLT performance and reliability issues, delivering wire-speed XML processing for XSLT transformation and schema validation.

This ITS validation test continues the trend of relevant real-world third party testing. Testing that remains true to technology consumers by providing technology vendors a respected and objective testing service that delivers impartial assessments that go well beyond marketing hype.
