Oracle Database 11g Sets New World Record For Price/Performance
Oracle continues to lead the TPC-C benchmark price/performance category with a new world record. The record was set with Oracle Database 11g Standard Edition One with Oracle Enterprise Linux running on HP ProLiant Server. With this result, Oracle now holds the top five record benchmark positions in the Top Ten TPC-C price/performance category.
"Delivering the top five results in the distinguished Top Ten list for the TPC-C price/performance category demonstrates the outstanding performance, scalability and value Oracle Database and HP ProLiant servers deliver to customers," said Juan Loaiza, senior vice president, Systems Technology, Oracle.
Achieving 232,002 transactions per minute with a price/performance of $.54USD/tpmC, Oracle Database 11g Standard Edition One with Oracle Enterprise Linux running on an HP ProLiant ML350 G6 server with a single-socket Intel Xeon E5520 quad-core processor and HP Smart Array P411 controller delivered the best price-per-transaction-per-minute ever achieved with the TPC-C benchmark, in addition to delivering the fastest result for a one socket system.
TPC-C is an OLTP (online transaction processing) benchmark developed by the Transaction Processing Performance Council (TPC). The TPC-C benchmark defines a rigorous standard for calculating performance and price/performance measured by transactions per minute (tpmC) and $/tpmC, respectively.
