In recent years, information system based on browse/server architecture (namely B/S architecture) received more favor by enterprises. Ajax technology consists of five parts. They are HTML, JavaScript, DHTML, DOM and XML. With the help of cooperation and collaboration of these technologies, they can optimize the conventional enterprise information system by using an asynchronous way. Meanwhile, a quickly-responded and smoother user interface was provided. Enterprise information system with Ajax can be operated in a more efficient way, which means even use the current hardware, it can provide more load capacity, be more stable and serve more clients in parallel. In this paper: we present two kinds of information system models, one use conventional B/S architecture and the other use Ajax enhanced B/S architecture. First, we build both of the systems in accordance with typical business applications (search files, database access, etc.). Second, we use standard web pressure test tool such as Microsoft Web Application Stress tool to test both of the systems to get information like concurrent user number and average response time. Finally, with those experimental data, I compare and found out the difference between the two systems. The results presented in this paper propose a good way for enterprises, to enhance the information system performance, capacity and stability under a definite hardware facilities circumstance.
