This result surpasses the best IBM single-node result on this benchmark by 32 percent(2).
Oracle WebLogic Server 11g with Oracle Database 11g Release 2 achieved 9,456.28 SPECjEnterprise2010 EjOPS. Oracle WebLogic Server was running on an Oracle SPARC T3-4 server powered by four SPARC T3 1.6 GHz processors. Oracle Database 11g was running on a SPARC T3-2 server equipped with two SPARC T3 1.6 GHz processors and used Sun Storage 6180 Arrays. Both SPARC T3 servers were running Oracle Solaris, the #1 enterprise operating system providing best-in-class reliability, security and performance.
Oracle’s complete, open and integrated solution consumed only half as much physical space and delivered three times better performance per rack unit (RU) than the best published single-node result by IBM(2).
SPECjEnterprise2010 is a Java Platform, Enterprise Edition (Java EE) -based industry standard benchmark, which tests an end-to-end technology infrastructure that includes server hardware, Java Virtual Machine (JVM), database, operating system, storage and network subsystems.
“This benchmark result clearly demonstrates the industry leading performance of the new Oracle SPARC T3, and the benefits of Oracle's hardware/software integration,” said Juan Loaiza, senior vice president, Systems Technology, Oracle.
