Why Benchmarks Matter
Today, performance is characterized by more than just chip speeds or the number of completed operations, as IT architects tune and optimize systems to deliver extreme performance for a variety of complex workloads. Customers need to be able to navigate the complexity of today's IT landscape while maintaining focus on their core business needs. That is why the industry has come up with a set of standard benchmarks that can help customers:
- Compare the performance of systems from different vendors
- Determine system's performance and response times for specific workloads
- Size data center requirements for a target application and/or usage pattern
- Measure and report on system's performance improvements over time and across generations
For over 30 years, Oracle has set the industry standard for performance, scalability and price/performance with over 500 world-record benchmarks across multiple categories as we continue to engineer the most scalable, efficient, and low-cost solutions for a variety of technology needs.
