Sitting In: What the Dell is going on?
By Stephanie Spada-Oracle on Jun 26, 2009
Well, a lot, for the record. Speaking of records, how about the one where Oracle announced a new world record TPC-C benchmark for Oracle Database 11g Standard Edition One running on Windows? With this result, Oracle now holds the top four record benchmark positions in the Top Ten TPC-C price/performance category and further demonstrates Oracle's commitment to providing enterprise-class scalability and performance at a low cost to customers of any size.
Or what about the one where Oracle WebLogic Server, a strategic component of Oracle Fusion Middleware, together with Oracle Enterprise Linux and Oracle Database 11g running on a Dell™ PowerEdge™ server, set a world record dual-node result with the SPECjAppServer2004 industry standard benchmark? Impressed? So were we.
This isn’t the only activity going on with Oracle and Dell. The Dell Product Group Engineering team, in conjunction with Oracle Server Technologies, has recently completed testing and validation of Oracle Database 10g Release 2 and 11g Release 1 on the latest blade servers. In coming months validation will be completed on the latest Nehalem servers offered by Dell. All validations include Oracles Database clustering technology RAC (Real Application Clusters). In addition, the Database validations were completed utilizing Windows 2008, Oracle Enterprise Linux 5 and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 operating Systems. All of this to provide customers pre-tested and pre-configured environments for the purpose of easing the overall implementation. Cool, huh?
