*Disclaimer: The workloads consisted of an airline flight reservation system (running MongoDB and node.js) and a transactional core banking application (running WAS and Db2). Four instances of the airline system were run, one instance simulating a Dev/QA environment, and three instances simulating a Production environment. Seven instances of the core banking application were run, one instance simulating a Dev/QA environment and six instances simulating a Production environment. Dev/Test and Production environments were differentiated by their CPU utilization levels. Intel servers are generally run at an average of 10-30% utilization per IT Economics data.
