Unbeatable Scalability of SAP ASE on Oracle M7

The Oracle SPARC M7 platform has incredible performance and some examples of it can be found in this blog. One very interesting customer example is with SAP ASE performance and scalability. SAP Adaptive Server Enterprise (Sybase) database is used by University hospitals Leuven (UZ Leuven). UZ Leuven is one of the largest healthcare providers in Europe and provides cloud services to 16 other Belgian hospitals, sharing patient records supported by the same IT infrastructure and systems. 

UZ Leuven was looking to increase the scale capacity of its SAP ASE platform to accommodate an anticipated 50% business growth in user transactions, along with added functionality of the application as more hospitals join the network. Their current load was about 80 million transactions per day for a 5 TB database.

420 vs 48 on Intel

The SPARC M7 platform proved to be the only platform that could linearly scale up to 420 SAP ASE clients, while their Intel E7-8857v2 platform scaled to only 48 clients.

The SPARC M7 platform also delivered better performance and response times while ensuring data availability and information security, critical needs for UZ Leuven’s patients. 

“Today, SPARC is the only suitable platform that meets our application needs. We selected SPARC servers over IBM and x86-based solutions because scalability and performance are essential for our mission-critical SAP Adaptive Server Enterprise database infrastructure. With the SPARC M7 servers, we can expand our business and grow at the speed of our customers,” said Jan Demey, Team Leader for IT Infrastructure, University Hospitals Leuven.
