Sun Blade X6270 M2 is the Fastest 12-Core System on Enterprise Java Benchmark


(As of Monday, 28 June 2010)

Oracle’s Sun Blade X6270 M2 server module,  paired up with one of the most stable Java implementations on the market, produced the best score among all 12-core results on the SPECjbb2005 benchmark.

The Sun Blade  X6270 M2 server module equipped with two Intel Xeon X5680 processors delivered a result of 931,637 SPECjbb2005 business operations per second (bops), surpassing all other servers using Intel Xeon 5600 processor series CPUs. With this result, the Sun Blade  X6270 M2 server module, part of the one of the industry's most versatile blade family, demonstrated the ultimate capability for the deployment of secure, Java-based enterprise applications.


The SPECjbb2005 benchmark 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 Java Virtual Machine (JVM) and the scalability of the system's processors and memory..


  • The Sun Blade X6270 M2 server module achieved leading scores of 931,637 SPECjbb2005 bops and 465,819 SPECjbb2005 bops/JVM.
  • The Sun Blade  X6270 M2 server module running Java HotSpot 1.6.0_21 Performance Release Virtual Machine on top of Windows Server 2008 OS beats the result of 916,251 SPECjbb2005 bops and 152,709 SPECjbb2005 bops/JVM posted by IBM System x3500 M3 server.
  • The Java HotSpot 1.6.0_21 Performance Release outscores IBM's J9 JVM running on competing blade system, as evident by results of 931,076 SPECjbb2005 bops and 155,179 SPECjbb2005 bops/JVM, posted by the Cisco UCS B200 M2 blade system. Because IBM's J9 JVM delivers less performance per instance when compared to Java HotSpot JVM, the Cisco blade, running on the same Intel Xeon X5680 CPUs, had to use 3x more JVM instances to achieve that result.
  • Undisputed leader across all systems based on Intel Xeon 5600 processor series CPUs, the versatile Sun Blade  X6270 M2 server module sets a new standard for blade server system performance, allowing customers to deploy fewer Java virtual machines with higher levels of efficiency and manageability than was possible before, thereby helping to reduce data center complexity and operational expenses.
