Oracle Software Running on HP ProLiant BL460c G6 Server Delivers Winning Benchmark Result

Redwood Shores, Calif – February 26, 2010

News Facts

Today, Oracle announced that Oracle® WebLogic Server, a component of Oracle Fusion Middleware, together with Oracle Database 11g, Oracle Real Application Clusters and Oracle Enterprise Linux, running on an HP ProLiant BL460c G6 server, delivered 11,067.68 SPECjAppServer2004 JOPS@Standard (jAppServer Operations Per Second), the highest performance ever achieved running a clustered database(1).
This achievement adds to Oracle WebLogic Server’s current SPECjAppServer2004 benchmark records including world record results in multi-node(2); dual-node(3); and single-node(4) categories; and the highest performance per core(5) of any result ever published.
Benchmark Details

The Java application servers were running on three HP ProLiant BL460c G6 server blades, each with two quad-core 2.93GHz Intel® Xeon® X5570 processors. The database tier was comprised of a two-node HP ProLiant BL460c G6 server cluster, each with two quad-core 2.93GHz Intel® Xeon® X5570 processors. Both application server and database machines were running Oracle Enterprise Linux.
For more than eight 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(6) and SPECjAppServer2002(7) benchmark categories and also holds the world records for best performance and price/performance in the Ecperf(8) 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.
