WebSphere and T2000 are like water and oil. Not much single thread power in a T2000 and not much multi-threading in websphere.

On a per core basis, everyone knows IBM P6 is quicker. I dont think anyone disputes that and if they do, well they're a fool. However the fact remains that in the real world, I can purchase a Sun configuration running oracle and Siebel for a lot less money. Not only does it cost less but this confiuration appears to out perform a power 6 configuration costing many times more? <div>&nbsp;</div> (following link which contains reports from oracle running bench marking tests)<div>&nbsp;</div> http://www.c0t0d0s0.org/archives/3962-UltraSPARC-T2-vs.-Power6-today-Siebel-CRM.html<div>&nbsp;</div>
