New World Records for SAP SD benchmarks on Oracle SPARC/Solaris

Parnian Taidi
Product Marketing Manager


Oracle SPARC Servers have produced amazing results setting a new
32-processor systems world record for the SAP SD benchmark.
These results attest to the power of the SPARC architecture and the
unique scalability of Oracle Solaris. Customers running SAP on
Oracle servers can leverage such performance to consolidate
workloads and dramatically reduce data center costs.


The SAP SD Standard Application Benchmark is a two-tier ERP business
test that is indicative of full business workloads of complete order
processing and invoice processing, and demonstrates the ability to
run both the application and database software on a single system.
It represents the critical tasks performed in real-world ERP
business environments and it's the benchmark most widely used by SAP
customers.

World Record for 32 processors:

Oracle's SPARC M6-32 server produced a world record
result for 32 processors beating the IBM Power 795 32-chip system
results.
  • The SPARC M6-32 server with 32 processors, 384 cores, and
    3,072 threads achieved two-tier results of 793,390 SAPs with
    140,000 users
    on the SAP Standard Application (SD)
    Benchmark using SAP enhancement package 5 for SAP ERP 6.0
    running on Oracle Solaris 11 and Oracle Database 11g.
  • 15% faster than the IBM Power 795 32-chip results (32/256/1024)
  • 14% more SAP users per chip than the Fujitsu M10-4s 40-chip
    results (40/640/1280)
