Oracle9i Database With Real Application Clusters Sets New Scalability and Performance World Record For Enterprise Online Analytical Processing

By DatabaseJournal.com Staff

[From Oracle]

REDWOOD SHORES, Calif., Apr. 14, 2003 - (http://www.oracle.com/tellmemore/?1696632) Oracle Corporation (NASDAQ: ORCL), the world's largest enterprise software company, today announced a new world record APB-1 OnLine Analytical Processing (OLAP) benchmark for Oracle9i Database Release 2 with Oracle9i Real Application Clusters. According to independent benchmark auditor DSS Lab, Oracle achieved 85,719 analytical queries per minute (AQM), which resulted in 75 times faster performance than Hyperion's best result of 1,135 AQM running on IBM hardware.(1)

"With this benchmark Oracle has really raised the bar on concurrent user support for OLAP applications," said George Spofford, Chief Architect of DSS Lab. "Ten thousand concurrent active users on a single OLAP application, while sustaining such a high server throughput, is a milestone in the business intelligence world."

Using Oracle9i Real Application Clusters running on a 4-node cluster of HP rp7400 Servers with HP-UX 11i operating system, this newest benchmark demonstrates the OLAP capabilities of Oracle9i Database and it's ability to cost-effectively scale to support an unlimited number of concurrent users performing complex queries. As part of an ongoing effort by HP and Oracle to provide a world-class platform for running advanced analytic applications, this benchmark illustrates that sophisticated analysis no longer has to be limited to a few specialized users within a company. Using the embedded OLAP engine in Oracle9i Database, information technology professionals can now give employees from all levels of an organization the ability to perform sophisticated data analysis.
