REDWOOD SHORES, Calif., Nov. 19, 2003 - (http://www.oracle.com/tellmemore/?2580243) Oracle Database 10g set a new world performance record with the first TPC-H one-terabyte benchmark on Linux. The record-setting benchmark is the result of collaboration between Lenovo, a Chinese hardware manufacturer and member of the Oracle PartnerNetwork, and Oracle's China Development Center in Beijing and Server Technologies Group in Redwood Shores, Calif.

The system benchmarked was a four-node Lenovo Cluster Server DeepComp 6800, each with four Intel Itanium 2 1.3 GHz processors running Oracle(r) Database 10g with Real Application Clusters and the Linux operating system. The record-setting result of 9,950.7 QphH@1000GB demonstrates Oracle's unparalleled scalability for data warehouse workloads on Linux and further illustrates the company's performance superiority on Linux using clustering technology.
