IBM Delivers World's Top Performing Transaction Server, Database; Ousts HP from Number One

By DatabaseJournal.com Staff

[From Business Wire]

IBM today announced a new world record for transaction processing. A new eServer(TM) pSeries(TM) system and DB2 Universal Database used half the number of processors to beat HP's Itanium 2-based Superdome running Microsoft Windows Server 2003.

According to the Transaction Processing Performance Council's TPC-C benchmark, an eServer p690 with 32 POWER4+(TM) processors running the AIX(TM) UNIX(R) operating system and DB2(R) Universal Database delivered 680,613.12 transactions per minute (tpm/C) at a cost of $11.13/tpmC. IBM ousted an Itanium 2 system that used twice the number of processors running Windows from the top performance spot.

The latest TPC-C results are available at http://www.tpc.org.
