Sun Fire 15k System Running Oracle9i Delivers World's Fastest TPC Data Warehouse Result on TPC-H Benchmark

1/17/2002 - Sun Microsystems, Inc. today announced another performance benchmark in a series of such announcements that provides further evidence of its performance and price/performance superiority as well as the most cost-effective solution on a TPC-H benchmark. Preliminary tests on the Sun Fire[tm] 15K server, Sun StorEdge[tm] arrays, Sun ONE, and Oracle9i have established Sun as the fastest performing and best price/performance system on the market. The mainframe class Sun Fire 15K server has conquered a benchmark that IBM mainframes have failed to run so far. This industry standard benchmark was devised in 1999 to represent ad-hoc queries. Because it is less than three years old and is focused on ad-hoc queries, this benchmark is still representative of the real-world decision support and data warehousing applications.
