Oracle Software Running on HP ProLiant BL460c G6 Server Delivers Winning Benchmark Result.
Today, Oracle announced that Oracle WebLogic Server, a component of Oracle Fusion Middleware, together with Oracle Database 11g, Oracle Real Application Clusters and Oracle Enterprise Linux, running on an HP ProLiant BL460c G6 server, delivered 11,067.68 SPECjAppServer2004 JOPS@Standard (jAppServer Operations Per Second), the highest performance ever achieved running a clustered database(1).
This achievement adds to Oracle WebLogic Server’s current SPECjAppServer2004 benchmark records including world record results in multi-node(2); dual-node(3); and single-node(4) categories; and the highest performance per core(5) of any result ever published.
The Java application servers were running on three HP ProLiant BL460c G6 server blades, each with two quad-core 2.93GHz Intel Xeon X5570 processors. The database tier was comprised of a two-node HP ProLiant BL460c G6 server cluster, each with two quad-core 2.93GHz Intel Xeon X5570 processors. Both application server and database machines were running Oracle Enterprise Linux.
For more than eight years, Oracle has submitted record-setting application server benchmarks on a broad range of hardware and software platforms. Oracle is the performance and price/performance leader in multiple SPECjAppServer 2001(6) and SPECjAppServer2002(7) benchmark categories and also holds the world records for best performance and price/performance in the Ecperf(8) benchmark of J2EE application servers reported in July 2002.
SPECjAppServer2004 is a multi-tier benchmark for measuring the performance of a representative J2EE 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.
