Oracle Fusion Middleware Delivers World Record Dual-Node Result with SPECjAppServer2004 Benchmark on Dell PowerEdge Server

Oracle WebLogic Server, a strategic component of Oracle Fusion Middleware, together with Oracle Enterprise Linux and Oracle Database 11g running on a Dell PowerEdge server, has set a world record dual-node result with the SPECjAppServer2004 industry standard benchmark. "With this, we currently hold the world record in all three SPECjAppServer2004 categories-single node, dual-node and multi-node," Mike Piech, senior director with Oracle Fusion Middleware, tells 5 Minute Briefing.

The benchmark is significant, notes Piech, because SPECjAppServer2004 "is representative of a real-world application. It is not a contrived, very narrowly applicable and very specific sort of thing. Rather, it is really representative of the range of activities of a real, live, running application so it is a relevant benchmark for our customers."

Oracle WebLogic Server 10g Release 3 with Oracle Database 11g, achieved 7,311.50 SPECjAppServer2004 JOPS@Standard (jAppServer Operations per Second). The Java application server was running on two Dell PowerEdge R610 rack servers, each equipped with a two-socket Intel Xeon®x5570 2.93 GHz processor. Oracle Database 11g was running on a four-socket Dell PowerEdge R900 rack server with an Intel Xeon x7460 hex-core 2.66 GHz processor. Both application server and database machines were running Oracle Enterprise Linux.

SPECjAppServer2004 is a multi-tier benchmark for measuring the performance of a representative Java EE application and each of the components that make up the application environment, including hardware, application server software, JVM software, database software, JDBC drivers and the system network.
