Do you have to wait for your application server to start every time you change your code? WebSphere® delivers sub-three-second server start-up time1 through its Liberty profile. You can immediately feel the difference. It lets you try your code as you change it. You get a lean download and a small footprint too, 4x slimmer than WebLogic.2

WebSphere Application Server now includes built-in application health management, intelligent routing, dynamic clustering, and enterprise batch workload support. The result: greater agility and potential big savings:3

WebLogic Server does not provide such capabilities. You need to buy the entire WebLogic suite. Moreover, Oracle®'s application infrastructure management tools do not offer support for popular server virtualization solutions such as VMware, PowerVM® and z/VM®.

With WebSphere, you could pay up to 57% less for first-year license and support.4 And you pay only for the cores you use, which is not always the case with Oracle software.
