Sun Blade X6270 Server Module Undisputed x86 Leader on SPECjbb2005 Benchmark for All Single Java Virtual Machine (JVM) Results
(As of Tuesday, 14 April 2009)
Oracle’s Sun Blade X6270 server obtained a single x86 Java Virtual Machine (JVM) world record score of 503,675 SPECjbb2005 Business Operations per Second (bops) (503,675 SPECjbb2005 bops/JVM) on this industry-standard benchmark.
SPECjbb2005 benchmark that emulates the design of real-world server-side Java applications and provides an accurate reflection of the business logic and objects, while stressing the implementation of the JVM and the scalability of the system's processors and memory.
SPECjbb2005 benchmark produces two equally important metrics—total system throughput (SPECjbb2005 bops) and JVM scalability (SPECjbb2005 bops/JVM), reflecting how different organizations may deploy their applications.
Running a single instance of the JVM per physical server continues to provide an effective way to isolate multiple tasks in the environments where dedicated solutions are necessitated by business or regulatory requirements. Moreover, this mode of operation guarantees the uniformed system utilization desired by enterprise data center managers and users alike.
As demonstrated by this leading benchmark result, the Sun Blade X6270 server module, equipped with two Intel Xeon X5570 processors (2 chips, 8 cores) and running 1.6.0_14 Performance Release, the latest version of Java Platform, Standard Edition (Java SE), is well suited for single JVM deployments.
Powered by OpenSolaris 2008.11, the Sun Blade X6270 server delivers top-shelf single-JVM performance, showcasing new capabilities of hardware, OS and Java, including multiple enhancements, specifically optimized for Intel's new Xeon Processor 5500 series.
Organizations and users that prefer to run a single instance of Java SE will find that the latest version (1.6.0_14 Performance Release) of the software, in combination with the Sun Blade X6270 server module, performs 80% better than the closest dual-socket score of 279,095 SPECjbb2005 bops (279,095 SPECjbb2005 bops/JVM) that was posted by Dell PowerEdge 2950 III server, equipped with two Intel Xeon X5460 processors(2 chips, 8 cores).
