The results were obtained under laboratory conditions, and not in an actual customer environment. IBM's internal workload studies are not benchmark applications, nor are they based on any benchmarkstandard. As such, customer applications, differences in the stack deployed, and other systems variations or testing conditions may produce different results and may vary based on actual configuration, applications, specific queries and other variables in a production environment. Prices, where applicable, are based onpublished US list prices for both IBM and competitor, and the cost calculation compares the cost per request for the 3yr life of the machine. 3 year total cost of acquisition comparisons are based on similar expected hardware, software, service & support offerings
