Futuremark will launch Servermark, a new benchmark for measuring and comparing the performance of servers.
The benchmarking tool is destined for x86-based servers running Linux and will be especially suitable for testing virtual machines.
Servermark will be developed in partnership with several hardware companies, and it will feature a variety of benchmark tests for web servers, file servers, database servers, media servers and other common server use cases.
Futuremark offers its Servermark Benchmark Development Program members the opportunity to provide input at all stages of development in addition to receiving regular development builds and complimentary site licenses for the new benchmark.
"I invite all companies with an interest in server performance to join our Benchmark Development Program and participate in the creation a new industry standard benchmark for server performance", said Jukka Mäkinen, Futuremark CEO.
