Sun SPARC Enterprise M9000 Server Breaks Another World Record
By staceyinfantino on May 21, 2008
The Sun SPARC Enterprise M9000 server has achieved a new single-system performance world record on the TPC-H data warehousing benchmark at the 1 Terabyte scale factor, demonstrating the effectiveness of Solaris 10 Operating System (OS) running Oracle 11g database on the SPARC-based platform.
Using the same number of cores, the Sun SPARC Enterprise M9000 server outperformed the best competing single system result, posted by the HP Integrity Superdome, by 69% with 18% advantage on price/performance.
The Sun SPARC Enterprise M9000 running the Solaris 10 OS maximizes utilization of your assets and is optimized for 24x7 mission critical computing. The system is ideal for large shared memory applications and business process computing such as BIDW and OLTP and provides for a long, highly scalable SPARC growth path.
