Oracle® Database Standard Edition One and Oracle Enterprise Linux on HP Set New World Record for Price Performance with TPC-C Benchmark


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(1), Oracle Database 10g Release 2 Standard Edition One delivered 45 percent more performance at 14 percent less cost than its nearest competitor(2). 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.

“With this world record price/performance result, along with our world record results for overall highest performance, Oracle has become both the fastest database and the value leader. This accomplishment is extraordinarily rare. It is the equivalent of having the car with the best value in the world also win the international track racing competitions,” said Juan Loaiza, Oracle Senior Vice President Systems Technology. “SMB and departmental organizations will want to take another look at Oracle. The combination of Oracle Database performance, socket-based pricing for Oracle Database Standard Edition One, and Oracle Enterprise Linux provide an unbeatable platform for the needs of SMBs and departments.”

Adding to the success of this benchmark result, Oracle and HP capture the leadership positions in all major TPC-C categories including the world record non-clustered and clustered performance results with more than 4 million(3) and 1.1 million(4) transactions per minute, respectively.
