Fujitsu Unveils New World Record Result on SAP® Business Intelligence-Data Mart Standard Application Benchmark


WEBWIRE

New result underlines high availability and scalability of Fujitsu Business Warehousing solution

Munich, In a breakthrough for enterprises running large SAP® solution-based data warehouses, Fujitsu today unveiled a new world record result on the SAP Business Intelligence-Data Mart (BI-D) Standard Application Benchmark, widely used by enterprises to efficiently analyze and optimize system performance in business warehousing (BW) environments.

The SAP BI-D Standard Application Benchmark provides a real-world indication of enterprise database performance through measuring system performance in handling high-volume queries to a business warehouse system database.

Fujitsu established a world record result on the SAP BI-D Standard Application Benchmark with a four-node Oracle Real Application Cluster (3), complementing the two-tier world record result on the SAP BI-D Standard Application Benchmark achieved with a single-node server (1) announced by Oracle and Fujitsu on October 13, 2009. On the four-node Fujitsu cluster, throughput was increased from the single-node score of 320,363 query navigation steps (1) to 1,165,742 query navigation steps (3). The two-node cluster configuration achieved 609,349 query navigation steps (2).

The outstanding results were established on Fujitsu PRIMERGY RX300 S5 rack servers running Oracle Database with Oracle Database Real Application Clusters. Based on industry standard servers and Linux, this cost-efficient environment provides excellent scalability and high availability for large-scale business warehousing deployments, at an affordable price.

Says Jens-Peter Seick, Senior Vice President, x86 Server Product Division at Fujitsu Technology Solutions: “The fact that we have beaten records previously established by systems based on big boxes (4) really underlines how PRIMERGY x86 servers today are starting to match the high performance of enterprise servers, at a lower cost. Our solution makes optimal use of hardware and software resources to provide excellent scalability and high availability. Achieving these benchmark results is a landmark that strengthens Fujitsu’s reputation as an infrastructure provider and provides another proof point of the many synergies from our long-standing strategic relationship with SAP.”

Fujitsu also introduced the PRIMERGY RX300 S5 database server as a migration path for enterprise data warehousing applications from end-of-life UNIX-based systems. The component-based approach allows organizations to start small, and add hardware capacity when needed. In addition, Oracle Real Application Clusters allow dynamic scaling, meaning that servers can be powered down or redeployed during off-peak hours, while additional processing nodes can easily be added at peak periods.

In comparison to traditional clustering, the dynamic solution, designed by experts from the global Fujitsu-SAP Competence Center in Walldorf, Germany, also enables higher system availability. Uptime is further supported through continuous system monitoring, and the automatic migration of processes to other nodes, should an individual server fail within the Oracle Real Application Clusters environment.
