Sun Server X4-2 Sets SPECjEnterprise2010 x86 2-Socket Record Result for SPECjEnterprise2010


(As of Sunday, 22 September 2013)

Oracle's Sun Server X4-2 and Sun Server X4-2L servers, utilizing the new Intel Xeon E5-2697 v2 processor, produced a world record two-chip x86 application server SPECjEnterprise2010 benchmark result of 11,259.88 SPECjEnterprise2010 EjOPS. The Sun Server X4-2 ran the application tier and the Sun Server X4-2L ran the database tier.


SPECjEnterprise2010 is the third generation of the SPEC organization's Java Platform, Enterprise Edition (Java EE) end-to-end industry standard benchmark application. The new SPECjEnterprise2010 benchmark has been redesigned and developed to cover the Java EE 5 specification's significantly expanded and simplified programming model, highlighting the major features used by developers in the industry today. This provides a real world workload driving the application server's implementation of the Java EE specification to its maximum potential and allowing maximum stressing of the underlying hardware and software systems.

Moreover, SPECjEnterprise2010 also heavily exercises all parts of the underlying infrastructure that make up the application environment, including hardware, Java Virtual Machine (JVM) software, database software, JDBC drivers, and the system network.

The primary metric of the SPECjEnterprise2010 benchmark is Enterprise Operations Per Second (SPECjEnterprise2010 EjOPS). The primary metric for the SPECjEnterprise2010 benchmark is calculated by adding the metrics of the Dealership Management Application in the Dealer Domain and the Manufacturing Application in the Manufacturing Domain.
