Oracle Corp. announced a record TPC-C clustered benchmark using Oracle9i Database Release 2 with Real Application Clusters running on ProLiant servers from the new HP.
Oracle's database on ProLiant servers delivered more performance using identical processors than the best comparable result in the TPC-C clustered category on 32 processors. Running on an eight-node ProLiant DL580 server cluster with Microsoft Windows 2000 Advanced Server and 32 Intel Pentium III 900 MHz processors, the new clustered result achieved 137,260.89 transactions per minute (tpmC) with a competitive price performance of $19.25/tpmC.
Oracle9i Database clusters deliver scalability and availability for real- world packaged applications Oracle E-Business Suite, PeopleSoft, SAP, Siebel as additional computing power is added on demand. This result demonstrates the speed and processing power of Oracle's database and demonstrates Oracle9i Real Application Clusters' ability to deliver excellent performance without compromising the availability, reliability, and security that customers expect from real-world applications.
In addition, the benchmark further demonstrates that ProLiant servers provide for Oracle databases in a clustered environment. The TPC-C benchmark evaluates a composite performance metric (tpmC) that measures the performance of various decision support systems by the execution of sets of queries against a standard database under controlled conditions.
