SPARC T3-2 Delivers First Oracle E-Business X-Large Benchmark Self-Service (OLTP) Result

With Oracle's SPARC T3-2 server running the application and Oracle's Sun SPARC Enterprise M5000 server running the database, Oracle set a world record result for the Oracle E-Business Standard X-Large HR Self-Service (OLTP) benchmark.

  • The combination of a SPARC T3-2 server for the application and a Sun SPARC Enterprise M5000 server for the database achieved a result of 4000 HR Self-Service Online users on the Oracle E-Business X-Large benchmark dataset.

  • Oracle's Sun Storage F5100 Flash Array storage which was utilized in the benchmark was instrumental in obtaining an average transaction response time as low as 1.2 seconds.

  • Oracle has published the first Oracle E-Business R12.1.2 XL benchmark for 4000 HR Self-Service online users on a SPARC T3-2 server for the application tier and a Sun SPARC Enterprise M5000 server on database tier with Oracle 11g R2 database. Both servers ran with the Oracle Solaris 10 operating system.

  • The combination of the SPARC T3-2 server and Oracle E-Business R12.1.2 in the application tier with low CPU utilization provides headroom for growth.

  • The Sun Storage F5100 Flash Array storage provides higher performance with smaller footprint and lower power/cooling costs.

  • The result shows that the SPARC T3-2 server works well as a high capacity application server.
