Oracle Delivers World Record TPC-C Benchmark on Linux; Outperforms Microsoft SQL Server by 14% on Identical Processors

9/18/2002 - Oracle, the world's largest enterprise software company, announced the world record TPC-C 32-processor clustered benchmark on Linux(1) using Oracle9i Database Release 2 with Real Application Clusters. The new clustered world record result achieved 138,362.03 tpmC and a price performance of $17.21/tpmC running on an eight-node cluster of HP ProLiant DL580 servers using Intel Pentium III Xeon Processors and Red Hat Linux Advanced Server software. Using the identical processors and the same amount of memory per CPU in a 32-processor cluster configuration, Oracle's database on Linux outperformed Microsoft SQL Server 2000's best result in this category by 14 percent.(1, 3) Oracle is now the TPC-C 32-processor cluster performance and price performance leader on both Red Hat Linux Advanced Server and Windows 2000 Advanced Server with industry leading HP ProLiant DL580 servers. (1, 2)

Oracle has a long history of benchmark performance World Records. This result adds the first Linux TPC-C Cluster to that record, demonstrating Oracle9i Real Application Clusters' ability to deliver excellent enterprise-class performance - now in a Linux environment - without compromising the availability, reliability, and security that customers expect from real-world applications.

The TPC-C is an OLTP (online transaction processing) benchmark developed by the Transaction Processing Performance Council (TPC). The TPC-C benchmark defines a rigorous standard for calculating performance and price/performance measured by transaction per minute (tpmC) and $/tpmC, respectively.
