Oracle Announces Record Benchmark Results on Intel Itanium 2 Servers
November 14, 2002Results Prove Oracle Beats Microsoft on Performance and Price/Performance on Entry Level Intel-based Systems
Oracle today announced four record benchmark results, measuring Oracle database performance for on-line transaction processing (OLTP) on Hewlett Packard (HP) systems using Intel Itanium 2 processors. With these results, Oracle beats Microsoft SQL Server on both performance and price-performance on single-system TPC-C benchmarks on 4 processors. Both Oracle and SQL Server results were on identical HP rx5670 servers. These results further expand Oracle's leadership in database performance, and demonstrate that Oracle database is the platform of choice for organizations choosing to deploy their mission-critical environments on entry-level Intel-based configurations.

Best Single System TPC-C result on 4 processors
Both TPC-C record results further illustrate Oracle's unique ability to provide consistent and price-competitive performance across all types of operating systems and hardware configurations.
IBM DB2 UDB has not published any TPC-C result on single systems running Unix, Linux, or Microsoft Windows-based operating systems. The TPC-C is an OLTP 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.
