Sun SPARC Enterprise T5440 Server Supports 14,000 Concurrent Users Running Siebel CRM and Oracle Database 10g
(As of Monday, 13 October 2008)
Oracle’s Sun SPARC Enterprise T5440 server has claimed the world record on the Siebel Platform Sizing and Performance Program (PSPP) benchmark, which is designed to stress systems running Siebel CRM, one of the most widely used CRM applications. The unprecedented result of 14,000 active Siebel benchmark users was set on a single Sun SPARC Enterprise T5440 server with Oracle iPlanet Web Server, Siebel CRM Application Servers, and Oracle Database 10g using Oracle Solaris Containers.
Siebel CRM 8.0 PSPP is a multi-tier benchmark that simulates the real-world requirements of a large organization consisting of thousands of users simultaneously accessing a call center from multiple departments.
A single Sun SPARC Enterprise T5440 server (UltraSPARC T2 Plus processors) set a new world record using Siebel's standard PSPP benchmark suite with Siebel CRM 8.0 Industry Applications and Oracle Database 10g running on Oracle Solaris and using Oracle Solaris Containers.
The benchmark demonstrates that the Sun SPARC Enterprise T5440 server provides the highest performance and the most cost-effective business solution for Siebel CRM applications. This breakthrough score was achieved via the powerful combination of Siebel CRM Release 8.0 industry applications, Oracle Database 10g, and Oracle iPlanet Web Server running on Oracle Solaris.
Oracle Solaris and chip multithreading (CMT) technology-based servers proves to be the best combination for scalability and resource utilization in the data center, giving users a consistent response time and room for future growth on critical applications.
The Sun SPARC Enterprise T5440 server proves to be the most energy- and space-efficient server in the industry, consuming only 1,276 watts during the benchmark in only four rack units.
The benchmark demonstrates that an entire Siebel CRM solution can run on a single Sun SPARC Enterprise T5440 server and serve 14,000 concurrent users with a rate of 200,137 business transactions per hour.
The result of 14,000 active Siebel benchmark users was achieved on a single Sun SPARC Enterprise T5440 server with four UltraSPARC T2 Plus processors that were using Oracle Solaris Containers, a zero-cost virtualization solution available on Oracle Solaris.
The Oracle's SPARC Enterprise T5440 server is capable of supporting 3,500 concurrent users per RU and provides an ideal platform for customers to consolidate their application, database, and Web serving software on a single system using Sun's no-cost virtualization technologies. This approach replaces the traditional need for up to three physical systems to accommodate a multi-tier architecture. In addition to simplifying management, it reduces space and power consumption, thereby providing huge savings on the overall solution.
