Oracle Database 11g Running on Oracle’s SPARC Enterprise M9000 Server Sets New World Record Benchmark Result

Oracle has announced a new world record non-clustered TPC-H 3TB benchmark result demonstrating the scalability of Oracle Database 11g Release 2 running on Oracle's SPARC Enterprise M9000 server. "This result demonstrates the outstanding performance and scalability of the SPARC Enterprise M9000 platform," states Juan Loaiza, senior vice president, Systems Technology, Oracle. "Overall, Oracle has delivered a remarkable portfolio of benchmark results showcasing our continued efforts to create an industry standard for performance, scalability and price/performance."

Running on a SPARC Enterprise M9000 server, equipped with 64 SPARC64 VII+ 3.0 GHz processors, and Sun Storage 6180 arrays, Oracle Database 11g Release 2 with Oracle Solaris achieved a world record TPC-H 3 TB non-clustered performance result of 386,478 QphH@3000GB with a price of $19.25/QphH@3000GB.

According to Oracle, the benchmark underscores the ability of SPARC Enterprise M-series servers to deliver near-linear scalability and handle the increasingly large databases required of decision support and data warehousing systems.

This result sets a new record delivering nearly two times more performance than the previous best score, already owned by Oracle. Oracle's SPARC Enterprise M9000 server, part of the SPARC Enterprise Server Family, is Oracle's highest performance enterprise server.
