First 64-bit Arabic Content Management Solution
Intel® Solution Services recently completed a benchmarking project for two Sakhr applications running on Intel® architecture-based platforms. The testing included the 32-bit version of ArabDox – Arabic Document Management System, and the 32-bit and 64-bit versions of IDRISI - the Arabic language search engine.
Sakhr looked to the Intel® platform because of Intel’s proven track record of reliability and technology leadership. Intel®-based servers are a very popular choice for today’s businesses around the world. “The main goal of the project was to benchmark the performance of Sakhr’s two major knowledge management applications, ArabDox and IDRISI when handling millions of documents and running on Intel® platforms,” commented John Feighan, Managing Director Intel® Solution Services, EMEA.
Sakhr optimized these application using Intel® Compilers and VTune™ Analyzers, raising the number of concurrent transactions that can be executed on a single server by nearly 300%, and breaking the barrier of the data size limit that can be managed, relying on the 64-bit architecture.
During the tests, ArabDox demonstrated that is was able to serve more than 12,000 users on a repository of 10 million documents using an Intel® Xeon™ processor-based server, and IDRISI 64-bit was able to serve around 210,000 users on a the same repository on an Intel® Itanium® 2 processor-based server.
“ArabDox is the first enterprise knowledge management solution to revolutionize the way organizations draw one complete, accurate and intelligent view of all of their Arabic information existing across their enterprise,” commented Salah Malaeb, Sakhr’s chief operating officer. “Sakhr has established a reputation as the Arabic Knowledge Management leader in providing optical character recognition, search, text mining, machine translation, and speech solutions for the Arabic language. Through this benchmark with Intel Solution Services, Sakhr is providing its Knowledge Management solution on an Intel Itanium platform, so our customers in the Arab world can take full advantage of the latest hardware platforms.”
The cooperation between the two companies started in 2001, and involved the Arabic speech engineers and the training of large numbers of Sakhr’s programmers at Intel, all of which culminated in enabling Sakhr’s knowledge management applications to produce optimum performance on Intel architecture-based systems.
“We are looking forward to continued cooperation between Intel and Sakhr. Our close collaboration has delivered an optimized Arabic-language solution for Intel® architecture-based systems, which can help increase productivity and reduce costs for many end-users in the Arab world,” concluded John Feighan.
