HP and Oracle Set World Record Performance Mark -First to Top 1 Million Transactions per Minute

By DatabaseJournal.com Staff

[From Hewlett-Packard Development Company, L.P.]

HP (NYSE:HPQ) and Oracle (Nasdaq:ORCL) today broke through a key technology performance barrier, becoming the first companies ever to top 1 million transactions per minute on the Transaction Processing Council's TPC-C benchmark.

The result was achieved running Oracle Database 10g, an HP Integrity Superdome server and Intel® Itanium. 2 processors. The benchmark not only sets a new industry record, but also reflects the power of industry-standard servers running the UNIX® operating system in "scale up" single server configurations.

HP and Oracle achieved 1,008,144.49 tpmC with a price/performance ratio of $8.33/tpmC. This result is 30 percent faster than achieved by the nearest competitive hardware vendor. The benchmark configuration consisted of a (non-clustered) 64-way HP Integrity Superdome running HP-UX 11i v2 with Oracle Database 10g and used HP StorageWorks Virtual Arrays 7110 configured with 36 gigabyte and 73 gigabyte drives.
