Java on SPARC T5-8 Servers is FAST

Watching the boats practicing on San Francisco Bay for the America's Cup reminds me that fast is fun!  Did you know that Oracle just announced world record Java benchmarks with SPARC T5 and Solaris?  

The Details

Oracle produced a world record SPECjEnterprise2010 benchmark result of 57,422.17 SPECjEnterprise2010 EjOPS using Oracle's SPARC T5-8 server in the application tier and another SPARC T5-8 server for the database tier. This result demonstrated less than 1 second response time for all SPECjEnterprise2010 transactions, while demonstrating a sustained load of Java EE 5 transactions equivalent to 468,000 users. A SPARC T5-8 has 8 chips, 128 cores, and runs a 3.6 GHz SPARC T5CPU. Translation: If you get some SPARC T5-8 servers, you can run your Java applications really, really fast.

About the Benchmark

SPECjEnterprise2010 is the third generation of the SPEC organization's J2EE end-to-end industry standard benchmark application. The new SPECjEnterprise2010 benchmark has been re-designed and developed to cover the Java EE 5 specification's significantly expanded and simplified programming model, highlighting the major features used by developers in the industry today. This provides a real world workload driving the Application Server's implementation of the Java EE specification to its maximum potential and allowing maximum stressing of the underlying hardware and software systems:

  • The web zone, servlets, and web services
  • The EJB zone
  • JPA 1.0 Persistence Model
  • JMS and Message Driven Beans
  • Transaction management
  • Database connectivity

Moreover, SPECjEnterprise2010 also heavily exercises all parts of the underlying infrastructure that make up the application environment, including hardware, JVM software, database software, JDBC drivers, and the system network.
