Oracle WebLogic Server 11g Running on Cisco Unified Computing System Server Delivers Stellar Result

ORACLE OPENWORLD, SAN FRANCISCO – Sept. 20, 2010

News Facts

Achieving a world record dual-node result with the SpecjAppServer 2004 benchmark, Oracle announced that Oracle® WebLogic Server 11g, a component of Oracle Fusion Middleware, together with Oracle Database 11g Release 2 and Oracle Linux, running on Cisco Unified Computing System Servers achieved 11,283.80 SPECjAppServer2004 JOPS@Standard (jAppServer Operations Per Second)(1).
This achievement adds to Oracle WebLogic Server’s current SPECjAppServer2004 benchmark world record results in multi-node(2) and single-node(3) categories; the highest performance ever achieved running a clustered database(4); and the highest performance per core(5) of any result ever published.

Benchmark Details

The Java application servers were running on two Cisco Unified Computing System B230 M1 Blade Servers each with two, eight-core Intel Xeon X7560 2.26 GHz processors. Oracle Database 11g Release 2 was running on one Cisco Unified Computing System B440 M1 Blade Server with four, eight-core Intel® Xeon® X7560 2.26 GHz processors. Both application servers and database server were running Oracle Linux.
For the past decade, Oracle has consistently submitted record-setting Java application server benchmarks on a broad range of hardware and software platforms(6,7,8). For current leading results, visit: http://www.oracle.com/solutions/performance_scalability/benchmark_results.html.
