Oracle, using Oracle Solaris and Oracle JDK, delivered a world record result on the SPECjbb2013 benchmark (Composite metric). This benchmark was designed by the industry to showcase Java server performance. SPECjbb2013 is the replacement for SPECjbb2005 (SPECjbb2005 will soon be retired by SPEC).
Oracle Solaris is 1.8x faster on the SPECjbb2013-Composite max-jOPS metric than the Red Hat Enterprise Linux result.
Oracle Solaris is 2.2x faster on the SPECjbb2013-Composite critical-jOPS metric than the Red Hat Enterprise Linux result.
The combination of Oracle Solaris 11.1 and Oracle JDK 7 update 15 delivered a result of 37,007 SPECjbb2013-Composite max-jOPS and 13,812 SPECjbb2013-Composite critical-jOPS on the SPECjbb2013 benchmark.
(Oracle has submitted this result for review by SPEC and it is currently under review.)
From SPEC's press release, "SPECjbb2013 replaces SPECjbb2005. The new benchmark has been developed from the ground up to measure performance based on the latest Java application features. It is expected to be used widely by all those interested in Java server performance, including JVM vendors, hardware developers, Java application developers, researchers and members of the academic community."
Results of SPECjbb2013 from www.spec.org as of February 22, 2013 and this report.
|Sun Server X2-4||4 x Intel E7-4870||37,007||13,812||Solaris 11.1||Oracle JDK 7u15|
|Supermicro X8DTN+||2 x Intel E5690||20,977||6,188||RHEL 6.3||Oracle JDK 7u11|
|Intel R1304BT||1 x Intel 1260L||6,198||1,722||Windows 2008 R2||Oracle JDK 7u11|
The above table represents all of the published results on www.spec.org. SPEC allows for self publication of SPECjbb2013 results. AnandTech has taken advantage of this and has some result on their website which were run on Intel Xeon E5-2660, AMD Opteron 6380, AMD Opteron 6376 systems. These information be viewed at: www.anandtech.com. Unfortunately AnandTech did not follow SPEC's Fair Use requirements in disclosing information about their runs, so it is not possible to include the results in the table above.

The SPECjbb2013 benchmark has been developed from the ground up to measure performance based on the latest Java application features. It is relevant to all audiences who are interested in Java server performance, including JVM vendors, hardware developers, Java application developers, researchers and members of the academic community.
SPECjbb2013 replaces SPECjbb2005. New features include:
- A usage model based on a world-wide supermarket company with an IT infrastructure that handles a mix of point-of-sale requests, online purchases and data-mining operations.
- Both a pure throughput metric and a metric that measures critical throughput under service-level agreements (SLAs) specifying response times ranging from 10ms to 500ms.
- Support for multiple run configurations, enabling users to analyze and overcome bottlenecks at multiple layers of the system stack, including hardware, OS, JVM and application layers.
- Exercising new Java 7 features and other important performance elements, including the latest data formats (XML), communication using compression, and messaging with security.
- Support for virtualization and cloud environments.
