Oracle (NASDAQ:ORCL) today announced a world record 2-processor benchmark on Linux that placed Oracle(R) Database 10g Standard Edition One (Oracle Standard Edition One) in the coveted Top Ten TPC-C by Price-Performance category. This record benchmark is the best price-performance ever on a 2-processor system, proving Oracle's ability to deliver exceptional performance and value on low-end servers.
Using an HP Integrity rx2600 server with two Intel(R) Itanium(R) 2 processors at 1.3 GHz each with 3 MB L3 cache running on Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS3, Oracle Standard Edition One achieved 51,506 tpmC (transactions per minute) with a price-performance ratio of $1.80/tpmC.
"This benchmark is further proof that Oracle Database 10g and Linux not only perform well, but the combination also delivers outstanding value," said Richard Sarwal, vice president of Server Performance, Oracle Corp. "Those looking for high performance and scalability at low cost, including smaller businesses and departmental users, can look to Oracle and HP."
"This is one of several industry-leading benchmarks achieved on HP Integrity servers running Linux with Oracle applications, demonstrating the outstanding performance of this combined platform," said Don Jenkins, vice president of marketing, Business Critical Systems, HP. "The HP Integrity server family offers customers industry-leading performance, choice of the major operating systems, increased investment protection and the flexibility of standards-based systems."
Oracle has an extensive track record of delivering world record performance and scalability and this benchmark adds to the long list of Oracle Database 10g performance world records, including the overall TPC-C world record result of 1.18 million transactions per minute on clustered Linux servers. With Oracle Database 10g, the company continues to provide customers with industry-leading capabilities that support their demanding data warehousing and transaction processing requirements.
