Advantage 10 Performance Comparison
Amongst the new exciting capabilities introduced in Advantage Database Server® 10 are many performance improvements that can quickly impact applications in a big way. The entire list of performance improvements can be found in the “What’s New in Advantage 10” whitepaper available on Sybase.com.
Most of these improvements can be realized by simply upgrading the server, without client side changes. By not requiring client side changes, distribution requirements are minimal which allows you to quickly and easily reap the performance benefits in your application.
Typically a single improvement will not result in noticeable application performance gains. However, the combination of Advantage 10’s improvements working together has proven to impressively boost performance both during internal testing and by early external adopters. While overall application performance will vary based on functionality and other factors, overall performance should improve for most customers who upgrade from v9.x to version 10.x. In some cases, performance improvements reported by customers have been in the 20 – 30% improvement range.
Only by testing Advantage 10 with your application in your environment can you truly receive an accurate portrayal of Advantage 10’s power. This document demonstrates a few scenarios that attempt to quantify the improvements attained from Advantage 9.1 to Advantage 10.
