We are happy to announce that the following benchmarks will be available, just in time for Convergence. The AX Performance Team have published both summary and detail
documents for each benchmark.

 Enterprise Portal benchmark

The benchmark results demonstrate the ability of Enterprise Portal to handle various loads concurrently, without compromising
performance and scalability for critical business processes.

 Hyper-V benchmark

In December 2011, Microsoft conducted a benchmark to measure the performance and scalability characteristics of Microsoft Dynamics
AX 2012 on physical servers, Windows Server 2008 R2 Hyper-V virtual servers, and a mixture of physical servers and Hyper-V virtual servers.

High volume inventory benchmark for retail environments

Microsoft Corporation conducted a benchmark to simulate an inventory workload with more than 4.96 million transaction lines.
The goal of the benchmark was to simulate three types of core inventory transaction and demonstrate that Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 can effectively
handle very high transactional volumes. The inventory transactions simulated the import of point of sale (POS) transactions for a large retail chain into
Microsoft Dynamics AX.
