Oracle® Fusion Middleware Delivers World Record Single-Node Result with SPECjAppServer2004 Benchmark on HP ProLiant Server


Oracle® WebLogic Server Demonstrates Groundbreaking Performance.

Redwood Shores, Calif. - Oracle announced that Oracle WebLogic Server, a component of Oracle Fusion Middleware, together with Oracle Database 11g running on an HP ProLiant server, set a world record single-node result with the SPECjAppServer2004 industry standard benchmark.(1)

Oracle WebLogic Server 10g Release 3 with Oracle Database 11g, achieved 3,339.94 SPECjAppServer2004 JOPS@Standard (jAppServer Operations Per Second). The Java Application Server was running on a HP ProLiant DL580 G5 with four Quad-Core Intel® Xeon® 2.93 GHz processors. Oracle Database 11g was running on an identical hardware configuration. Both application server and database machines were running the Linux Operating System.

Over the past five 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(2) and SPECjAppServer2002(3) benchmark categories and also holds the world records for best performance and price/performance in the Ecperf(4) 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.
