Actuate outperforms Crystal for Enterprise reporting on clustered hardware.

Actuate Corporation (Nasdaq:ACTU), the world leader in scalable Business Intelligence Applications, recently announced that third-party interactive reporting tests have confirmed that Actuate 7 running on a server cluster of three machines supports 48% more concurrent virtual users than Crystal Enterprise 9 does in a six machine cluster of equivalent hardware. Actuate's ability to support a greater number of users using half of the hardware is an enormous economy that can be passed on to customers considering whether to deploy Actuate 7 or Crystal Enterprise 9. As repeated third party studies have shown, Actuate has consistently shown better performance on less hardware and cleaner linear scalability as compared to Crystal Enterprise.

The benchmark conclusions continue to underscore Actuate's ability to provide the most scalable enterprise reporting solution in the industry: one that efficiently grows to meet the information demands of user populations of any size and maximizes the efficiency of hardware processing power in doing so. Actuate 7's clustering capability has no single point of failure, relies on no third party clustering technology and provides near linear scalability so that IT departments can easily plan for increasing user populations. The benchmark study was conducted by National Technical Systems (NTS) (Nasdaq:NTSC), a leading provider of quality and conformance testing for high technology products in a wide variety of industries in the U.S., Europe and Japan, which validated the test environment, gathered data using industry standard tools and procedures, and impartially formulated a conclusion based on the test results.

NTS successfully executed an interactive enterprise reporting benchmark that measures the performance and scalability of Actuate 7 iServer and Crystal Enterprise 9 in a clustered server environment. The benchmark was conducted on identical hardware and operating system, with identical test scenarios, using a commercial benchmark driver.
