NEC Express5800/1320Xf Enterprise Server Achieves New World Record - Highest TPC-E Performance in the Industry


NEC Again Validates Performance Leadership

Santa Clara, CA.- NEC Corporation of America, a premier provider of IT, network and identity management solutions, announced today that on February 27, 2008, the NEC Express5800/1320Xf server with NEC S2500 storage reported the highest TPC-E performance benchmark result in the industry.

In this specific TPC-E benchmark, the NEC Express5800/1320Xf achieved 1,126.49 tpsE (transactions per second-E) outperforming the next highest system by 70%. The price per performance was $2,771.79/tpsE, demonstrating the power of an NEC Enterprise Server solution with its S-Series storage arrays running 32 Dual-Core Intel® Itanium® 9150 processors, Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Enterprise Edition for Itanium-based Systems on the Microsoft Windows Server 2008 operating system. This is the first TPC-E result on an Intel Itanium-based server product.

“Twice within a month, NEC has enjoyed top rankings on the TPC’s rigorous testing with its Express5800 Enterprise Servers. We are very proud to have achieved this record-breaking scale up performance and to secure the top position in TPC-E performance,” said Mike Mitsch, general manager, Enterprise Server Division of NEC Corporation of America. “The TPC-E result is further proof that NEC’s Enterprise servers and storage deliver the scalability and performance required by modern OLTP system workloads.”

Developed for over ten years and leveraging NEC’s award-winning supercomputer and mainframe technology, NEC Express5800/1000 series servers meet mission critical business needs for the enterprise. The NEC Express5800/1320Xf is the third-generation NEC Express5800/1000 series Intel Itanium processors server product incorporating NEC’s innovative A3 chipset. NEC’s A3 chipset contributes to the server’s outstanding reliability, availability, serviceability (RAS), scalability and performance.

“This record-breaking TPC-E performance shows what is possible when our industry partners utilize industry leading technology, such as NEC’s Enterprise Server, and the enhancements of SQL Server 2008 and Windows Server 2008,” said David Powell, Director, SQL Server Performance at Microsoft Corp. “This is further evidence SQL Server 2008 meets the most mission critical needs of the most demanding OLTP system workloads.”

The TPC-E benchmark, introduced in February 2007, simulates the OLTP workload of a brokerage firm. The focus of the benchmark is the central database that executes transactions related to the firm’s customer accounts. Although the underlying business model of TPC-E is a brokerage firm, the database schema, data population, transactions, and implementation rules have been designed to be broadly representative of modern OLTP systems.
