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.
