the #1 enterprise operating system and Oracle’s new SPARC T4-4 serversachieved an overall world record result, in addition to setting the highest result ever achieved with a clustered database, with the industry-standard SPECjEnterprise2010 benchmark.
Oracle’s SPARC T4 servers are available as 1-, 2- and 4-socket servers or as a single socket blade server module and are based on the new SPARC T4 processor which features higher clock speeds and a smarter core layout optimised for both throughput and single threaded processing.
This benchmark result delivers 2.4 times more performance than IBM, shattering their best result achieved on POWER7-based servers running IBM WebSphere and DB2 database (2), showcasing the outstanding performance and scalability of the entire Oracle stack, from web server software to storage hardware.
Compared to IBM’s best result, this world record also demonstrates the outstanding performance of the new SPARC T4 processor that delivers 20 per cent more work per processor than POWER7 across the configuration. Comparing application server hardware, Oracle’s solution delivers 6.7 times better price/performance with nearly two times better performance per rack unit over IBM’s solution (1,2).
“With this benchmark result, Oracle’s complete stack once again raises the performance bar for the industry and enables customers to build more powerful solutions for running enterprise Java applications,” said Juan Loaiza, senior vice president, Systems Technology, Oracle. “Demonstrating world-record performance with the latest SPARC T4-based hardware is proof of Oracle’s continued innovation and drive to provide complete, open and integrated solutions that help our customers better run their businesses.”
