SPARC T5-8 Server Delivers New World Record Result for SPECjEnterprise2010 Benchmark

BENCHMARK SUMMARY

(As of Tuesday, 26 March 2013)

Oracle produced a world record SPECjEnterprise2010 benchmark result of 57,422.17 SPECjEnterprise2010 EjOPS using Oracle's SPARC T5-8 servers for the application tier and the database tier, respectively.

These results demonstrate that the SPARC T5-8 server provide 3.4 times better performance compared to the eight-chip IBM Power 780 result of 16,646.34 SPECjEnterprise2010 EjOPS. Also, the SPARC T5-8 is 3.7 times less expensive (1) for the application server hardware list cost compared to the eight-chip IBM Power 780 configuration.

BENCHMARK DESCRIPTION

SPECjEnterprise2010 is the third generation of the SPEC organization's Java 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition (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.
