Today, Oracle announced two x86 world record benchmark results delivered by its industry-leading software and hardware, demonstrating the superior performance of the Oracle stack.

An x86 world record result was achieved on the SPECjEnterprise2010 benchmark, with Oracle WebLogic Server 12c, the #1 application server across conventional and cloud environments; Oracle Database 11g Release 2; running Oracle Linux on Oracle’s Sun Fire X4800 M2 server(1). This single node world record outstrips the best IBM single node result, delivering 1.63 times more performance(2).

An x86 world record TPC-C benchmark result was set with the Sun Fire X4800 M2 server, running Oracle Linux with the Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel Release 2, Oracle Tuxedo, and Oracle Database 11g Release 2(3), beating the best x86 results from IBM(4) and HP(5) by 1.6 and 2.8 times respectively.

Oracle’s x86-Based Solutions Deliver Industry-Best Performance for Enterprise Workloads

SPECjEnterprise2010, x86 System and Single Node World Record: In this benchmark, which is based on real-world Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), manufacturing and supply chain management business cases, Oracle achieved both a single node and an x86 world record result of 27,150 SPECjEnterprise2010 EjOPS (SPECjEnterprise Operations Per Second).

The middle tier of Oracle’s solution was running Oracle Fusion Middleware and consisted of Oracle WebLogic Server 12c and Java HotSpot 64-Bit Server VM version 7 update 2, the industry-leading Java Virtual Machine, running on top of the Sun Fire X4800 M2 server.

At the database tier, Oracle’s Sun Fire X4470 M2 server running Oracle Database 11g Release 2, had data files distributed across four of Oracle’s Sun Storage F5100 Flash Arrays and log files placed on two of Oracle’s Sun Storage 2540 M2 arrays.

Compared to IBM’s best single node result using POWER7 processors, Oracle’s solution delivered higher performance per processor across the configuration. At the application tier, Oracle’s configuration was 1.63 times faster with over 5 times better performance per rack unit, while server hardware had a calculated price/performance advantage of 14 times over IBM Power 780(2).

Oracle WebLogic Server, running on Oracle’s most powerful Sun Fire server, now holds the x86 world record and a single node world record, in addition to holding the overall world record result on the SPECjEnterprise2010 benchmark(6).

TPC-C x86 World Record: On this industry-standard benchmark, the popular yardstick for comparing OLTP performance on various hardware and software configurations, Oracle achieved 5,055, 888 transactions per minute (tpmC) with a price/performance of $.89/tpmC.

The Sun Fire X4800 M2 server, equipped with eight Intel® Xeon® E7-8870 processors and 4TB of Samsung’s Green DDR3 memory, running Oracle Database 11g, was 1.67 times faster than the best DB2 result running on IBM’s x86 server(4).

The Sun Fire X4800 M2 server, using Sun Storage F5100 Flash Arrays for database storage, surpassed HP’s best published x86 score with the Proliant DL580 G7 server, running Microsoft SQL Server, by 2.8 times(5).

Oracle Database 11g now holds the TPC-C performance world record for all x86 systems, as well as the overall world record(7).
