SPARC T5-2 Set 2-Socket SPECjEnterprise2010 World Record

BENCHMARK SUMMARY

(As of Wednesday, 22 January 2014)

Oracle produced a world record with the SPECjEnterprise2010 benchmark of 17,033.54 SPECjEnterprise2010 EjOPS for a single application server in a two-socket configuration. These results were obtained by using two of Oracle's SPARC T5-2 servers: one server for the application tier and the second server for the database tier.

BENCHMARK DESCRIPTION

SPECjEnterprise2010 is the third generation of the SPEC organization's J2EE end-to-end industry standard benchmark application. The new SPECjEnterprise2010 benchmark has been redesigned and developed to cover the Java Platform, Enterprise Edition (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.

This SPARC T5-2 server result represents the best performance per socket for a single system in the application tier of 8,516.77 SPECjEnterprise2010 EjOPS per socket.

The SPARC T5-2 server demonstrated 1.5 times higher performance compared to Oracle's two-socket Sun Server X4-2 system, running Intel's E5-2600 v2 series processor, result of 11,259.88 SPECjEnterprise2010 EjOPS.

The SPARC T5-2 server delivered 29% better performance compared to the two-socket IBM PowerLinux server result of 13,161.07 SPECjEnterprise2010 EjOPS.

The two SPARC T5-2 servers have 1.2 times better price performance than the two IBM PowerLinux 7R2 POWER7+ processor-based servers (based on hardware plus software configuration costs for both tiers). The price performance of the SPARC T5-2 server is $35.99 compared to the IBM PowerLinux 7R2 at $44.75.(1)

 

(1)The SPARC T5-2 configuration cost is the total application and database server hardware plus software. List price is $613,052 from http://www.oracle.com as of 1/22/2014. The IBM PowerLinux 7R2 configuration total hardware plus software list price is $588,970 based on public pricing from http://www.ibm.com as of 1/22/2014. Pricing does not include database storage hardware for IBM or Oracle.
