SPARC T3-1 Server Delivers World Record on Oracle's JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Benchmark

BENCHMARK SUMMARY

(As of Monday, 11 April 2011)

Using the online component of a "Day in the Life" test that represents the most commonly used of Oracle's JD Edwards EnterpriseOne applications, Oracle's SPARC T3-1 server, running Oracle WebLogic Server 11g Release 1 version 10.3.2, a component of Oracle Fusion Middleware, and JD Edwards EnterpriseOne 9.0.1 with Tools 8.98.3.3 in Oracle Solaris Containers, in tandem with Oracle's SPARC Enterprise M3000 server running Oracle Database 11g Release 2, delivered a new record result of 5000 users.

Oracle's solution provides customers with high performance and scalability in a compact form factor with built-in virtualization and security features.

BENCHMARK DESCRIPTION

JD Edwards EnterpriseOne is an integrated applications suite of enterprise resource planning software with application modules that support a diverse set of business operations. The "Day-In-the-Life benchmark kit consists of a collection of scripts that exercise the most common transactions of JD Edwards EnterpriseOne applications, including business processes such as payroll, sales order, purchase order, work order, as well as manufacturing processes, such as ship confirmation. Scripts execute online transactions typical of a mid-sized manufacturing company and collect the transactions response times while increasing the numbers of users.

  • The objective of this round of the test was to demonstrate the performance and scalability of the SPARCT3-1 server using only the online component of the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne benchmark. Therefore, the environment was optimized to support a large number of concurrent users while maintaining sub-second response time, required for successful completion of this benchmark.
  • The SPARC T3-1 server running two instances of Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g, Oracle WebLogic Server 11g, and Oracle HTTP server 11g alongside JD Edwards EnterpriseOne 9.0.1 application utilized Oracle Solaris Containers to demonstrate the consolidation effect of hosting multiple software servers on a single system. The SPARC T3-1 together with the SPARC Enterprise M3000 server running Oracle Database 11g Release 2 delivered the highest number of users ever recorded on the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne "Day in the Life" benchmark.
  • This solution provides customers with high performance and scalability in a compact form factor with built-in virtualization and security features, further reducing operational costs.
  • JD Edwards EnterpriseOne 9.0.1 takes advantage of the large number of compute threads available in the SPARC T3-1 server at the application tier while achieving excellent response times.
  • The SPARC T3-1 server can run the online component of JD Edwards EnterpriseOne 9.0.1 "Day in the Life" benchmark 25% faster than the POWER7-based IBM P750 system. Additionally, SPARC T3-1 has better response time and occupies only half the space of IBM P750 server.
  • Oracle Solaris Containers are ideal for Web and application tier consolidation, and provide flexibility, easier maintenance, and better CPU utilization while leaving processing capacity for additional growth.
  • The SPARC Enterprise M3000 provides a compact, enterprise-class 2RU platform for customers deploying Oracle Database 11g on Oracle Solaris.
  • JD Edwards EnterpriseOne 9.0.1, Oracle Database 11g Release 2, Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g, Oracle WebLogic Server 11g Release 1 version 10.3.2, and Oracle HTTP Server 11g running on the SPARC T3-1 server and Oracle Database 11g running on a SPARC Enterprise M3000 server with Oracle Solaris 10 comprise an ideal environment for hosting complex, multi-tier JD Edwards EnterpriseOne business applications.
