Price/Performance World Record with TPC-C Benchmark using Oracle Linux and HP ML350

Today, Oracle announced a new TPC-C benchmark result on an HP ProLiant ML350 with the best ever price/performance. This result sets a world record in the price/performance category, which measures the cost per transaction of the configuration benchmarked. It demonstrates that Oracle Database not only provides customers with a highly performant and scalable data management solution, but can also deliver unparalleled cost savings with record-breaking performance on HP ProLiant systems, ideally suited to small and medium sized businesses (SMB).

Achieving 100,926 transactions per minute with a price/performance of $.78/tpmC, Oracle Database 10g Release 2 Standard Edition One delivered 45 percent more performance at 14 percent less cost than its nearest competitor. To set this new TPC-C price performance record, Oracle Database 10g Release 2 Standard Edition One was run on an HP ProLiant ML350 server with one Intel Quad-Core Xeon 2.6 GHz processor and HP StorageWorks arrays.

The operating system used was Oracle Enterprise Linux, which is fully compatible with Red Hat Enterprise Linux, and supported under the Oracle Unbreakable Linux program. Together, Oracle and HP delivered the best price per transaction per minute ever achieved for a TPC-C benchmark.
