IDEAS Joins SPEC, the Performance Benchmarking Organization

To further cement its reputation as an expert in competitive server performance comparisons and to help guide the future of industry-standard performance benchmarking, Ideas International Limited has joined the Standard Performance Evaluation Corporation (SPEC). Becoming a full member of SPEC will allow IDEAS to:   

  • Interact with a broader group of benchmark-related specialists
  • More closely track key issues impacting measuring server performance
  • Help shape the future of industry-standard performance benchmarking and reporting

Daniel Bowers, vice president and senior analyst, and the lead performance analyst at IDEAS, said, “As an independent analyst company in a membership that is mostly vendors, IDEAS will focus its efforts on using SPEC performance benchmarks for independent comparisons of competing products.”

"SPEC welcomes Ideas International to the Open Systems Group and looks forward to the unique customer-centric perspective that it will bring to the benchmark development process," said Walter Bays, SPEC president.

Mr. Bowers continued, “IDEAS also looks forward to contributing and helping shape future benchmarks aimed at responding to industry developments, such as the impact of virtualization on server performance.
