Oracle and HP have set a world record for Oracle Database 11g Standard Edition One running on Oracle Enterprise Linux. With this result, Oracle now holds the top five record benchmark positions in the Top Ten TPC-C price/performance category.
"Delivering the top five results in the distinguished Top Ten list for the TPC-C price/performance category showcases the outstanding performance, scalability and value Oracle Database delivers to customers" states Juan Loaiza, senior vice president, Systems Technology, Oracle. "With this result, Oracle Database running on an HP ProLiant server demonstrates a winning combination."
Achieving 232,002 transactions per minute with a price/performance of $.54USD/tpmC, Oracle Database 11g Standard Edition One with Oracle Enterprise Linux running on an HP ProLiant ML350 G6 server with a single-socket Intel Xeon E5520 quad-core processor and HP Smart Array P411 controller delivered the best price-per-transaction-per-minute ever achieved with the TPC-C benchmark, in addition to delivering the fastest result for a one socket system.
TPC-C is an OLTP (online transaction processing) benchmark developed by the Transaction Processing Performance Council (TPC). The TPC-C benchmark defines a rigorous standard for calculating performance and price/performance measured by transactions per minute (tpmC) and $/tpmC, respectively.
