Industry-Leading, General-Purpose, Java Server Module—The Sun Blade X6270 Server


(As of Tuesday, 14 April 2009)

Oracle’s Sun Blade X6270 server module led the pack on SPECjvm2008, a general-purpose, multi-threaded Java benchmark. The winning combination of Oracle’s open network systems, OpenSolaris 2008.11, and HotSpot software offered a proven and stable environment with the best performance in the industry.


SPECjvm2008 is a multithreaded Java benchmark suite measuring the performance of a Java Runtime Environment (JRE). The benchmark focuses on executing a single application and reflects the performance of the operating system and the underlying processor and memory subsystem as the system executes the JRE. This multi-threaded Java benchmark stresses specific aspects of Java Virtual Machine (JVM) performance, such as threading, locks, just-in-time (JIT) compiler, and the virtual memory management system. It contains a broad collection of real-world applications and is applicable to measuring general-purpose Java performance on a wide variety of client and server systems.


  • The Sun Blade X6270 sever module delivered a composite result of 317.13 SPECjvm2008 Base ops/m, the highest result ever posted on this benchmark.
  • Oracle continues to demonstrates performance leadership on SPECjvm2008 with each new benchmark submission, while relentlessly pushing the performance of the Java platform forward.
  • The Sun Blade X6270 sever module, equipped with two Intel Xeon X5570 processors, improved the previous high score by 12%.
  • The most stable Java platform in the industry — Java 2 Platform, Standard Edition (J2SE) (1.6.0_14 Performance Release) and OpenSolaris OS — are an ideal choice for customer deployments that rely on JRE to execute a single application on a given system.
