Fujitsu Introduces SAP Business Intelligence-Data Mart Standard Application Benchmark

New result underlines high availability and scalability of Fujitsu Business Warehousing solution Munich, In a breakthrough for enterprises running large SAP
solution-based data warehouses, Fujitsu today unveiled a new world
record result on the SAP Business Intelligence-Data Mart (BI-D)
Standard Application Benchmark, widely used by enterprises to
efficiently analyze and optimize system performance in business
warehousing (BW) environments.

The SAP BI-D Standard Application Benchmark provides a real-world
indication of enterprise database performance through measuring system
performance in handling high-volume queries to a business warehouse
system database.

Fujitsu established a world record result on the SAP BI-D Standard
Application Benchmark with a four-node Oracle Real Application Cluster
(3), complementing the two-tier world record result on the SAP BI-D
Standard Application Benchmark achieved with a single-node server (1)
announced by Oracle and Fujitsu on October 13, 2009. On the four-node
Fujitsu cluster, throughput was increased from the single-node score of
320,363 query navigation steps (1) to 1,165,742 query navigation steps
(3). The two-node cluster configuration achieved 609,349 query
navigation steps (2).

The outstanding results were established on Fujitsu PRIMERGY RX300
S5 rack servers running Oracle Database with Oracle Database Real
Application Clusters. Based on industry standard servers and Linux,
this cost-efficient environment provides excellent scalability and high
availability for large-scale business warehousing deployments, at an
affordable price.

Says Jens-Peter Seick, Senior Vice President, x86 Server Product
Division at Fujitsu Technology Solutions: “The fact that we have beaten
records previously established by systems based on big boxes (4) really
underlines how PRIMERGY x86 servers today are starting to match the
high performance of enterprise servers, at a lower cost. Our solution
makes optimal use of hardware and software resources to provide
excellent scalability and high availability. Achieving these benchmark
results is a landmark that strengthens Fujitsu’s reputation as an
infrastructure provider and provides another proof point of the many
synergies from our long-standing strategic relationship with SAP.”

Fujitsu also introduced the PRIMERGY RX300 S5 database server as a
migration path for enterprise data warehousing applications from
end-of-life UNIX-based systems. The component-based approach allows
organizations to start small, and add hardware capacity when needed. In
addition, Oracle Real Application Clusters allow dynamic scaling,
meaning that servers can be powered down or redeployed during off-peak
hours, while additional processing nodes can easily be added at peak

In comparison to traditional clustering, the dynamic solution,
designed by experts from the global Fujitsu-SAP Competence Center in
Walldorf, Germany, also enables higher system availability. Uptime is
further supported through continuous system monitoring, and the
automatic migration of processes to other nodes, should an individual
server fail within the Oracle Real Application Clusters environment.
