Oracle Database 11g Delivers World Record Result on SAP BI-D Standard Application Benchmark

Yesterday, Oracle announced a world record result on the SAP Business Intelligence-Data Mart (BI-D) standard application benchmark. According to Oracle, this result surpasses the best IBM DB2 result on this benchmark with more than eight times the performance.

The system was comprised of a two-node Fujitsu PRIMERGY RX600 S5 server, equipped with Intel Xeon X7560 2.26 GHz processors. Oracle Database 11g on Linux delivered a world-record result of more than 1.6 million query navigation steps per hour on the SAP BI-D standard application benchmark.

When measured from a one-node to a two-node configuration, as documented and certified by SAP AG, Oracle Database with Oracle Real Application Clusters showed 90% scalability by achieving 854,649 and 1,624,629 query navigation steps per hour, respectively, while delivering outstanding performance and high availability. Additionally, the one-node and two-node results delivered more than four times the throughput per processor and a higher performance per core, respectively, than the highest IBM DB2 results on the SAP BI-D standard application benchmark.

"This benchmark result showcases the superior performance and scalability of Oracle Database 11g and Oracle Real Application Clusters," states Juan Loaiza, senior vice president, Systems Technology, Oracle. "Together, these products provide a strong software infrastructure to underpin a solid BI foundation from which organizations can transform information into action."
