Liferay Portal 6.0 Performance Overview

Liferay Portal is the leading open source enterprise portal solution. Gartner named Liferay a leader in feature completeness and ROI among the vendors represented in the Gartner Magic Quadrant. Liferay Portal Enterprise Edition is the commercial and long-term supported edition of the Liferay Portal solution. The Liferay engineering team performed intensive tuning and testing to demonstrate the scalability of Liferay Portal Enterprise Edition in a collection of use cases including infrastructure portal, collaboration, and content management. The goals of this study were to: * Determine the maximum number of virtual users supportable by a single physical server across defined test cases. * Determine if Liferay Portal provides linear scalability (i.e. if we double the number of portal application servers, we should double the number of virtual users). * Provide statistics to help Liferay Global Services, Liferay Portal Enterprise clients, and Liferay Service Partners in capacity planning.
