Scalable, Reliable, Secure, and Cost-Effective (Dassault Systems ENOVIA V6 on SQL Server 2008)

Engineers from Dassault Systèmes and Microsoft ran benchmarking tests to measure the performance and scalability for ENOVIA V6 with SQL Server 2008.  The tests were designed to reflect real-world usage patterns of ENOVIA V6 customers. The benchmarking tests simulated up to 5,000 collaborative users (a number typical for a large enterprise environment).

The transaction times for typical PLM tasks, such as running searches and editing data, were measured.


SQL Server 2008 maintained a consistent average transaction time as the number of users increased, confirming that SQL Server 2008 is a strong choice for the database platform for ENOVIA V6.  

As described in Buying a Vehicle vs. Buying a Database Platform when using the Enterprise Edition of SQL Server 2008 (unlike some competitor platforms) reliability is not an "added option" as the following High Availability features are included:

  • Database Mirroring
  • Failover Clustering
  • Replication
  • Log Shipping

As described in Why Pay More For Less Microsoft SQL Server is the most cost effective Enterprise level database platform and offers:

  • Lower cost with advanced features included in the base license
  • Lower cost with better multicore licensing
  • Lower cost with better user licensing
  • Lower cost with better standby server licensing
