Oracle Software and Hardware Delivers the Highest SAP SD-Parallel Benchmark Performance Result Ever Achieved; Showcases Near Linear Scalability

ORACLE OPENWORLD, SAN FRANCISCO – October 4, 2011

News Facts

  • Demonstrating the superior performance, reliability and near linear scalability of Oracle Database clusters running on Sun Fire X4800 M2 servers with Oracle Solaris, Oracle today announced a new overall world-record result on the SAP® Sales and Distribution-Parallel (SD-Parallel) standard application benchmark running the SAP enhancement package 4 for the SAP ERP 6.0 application.
  • To facilitate this benchmark, Oracle created a base configuration that included Oracle Database 11g Release 2 and Oracle Real Application Clusters running on Oracle’s Sun Fire X4800 M2 servers, each equipped with eight Intel® Xeon® E7-8870-processors and Oracle Solaris, the #1 enterprise operating system. This configuration has been replicated to create four distinct clusters that delivered the following outstanding performance results:
    • Two node: achieved a result of 49,860 SAP SD-Parallel benchmark users(1).
    • Four node: achieved a result of 94,736 SAP SD-Parallel benchmark users(2).
    • Six node: achieved a leading result of 137,904 SAP SD-Parallel benchmark users(3).
    • Eight node: set a new overall world record result on the SAP Sales and Distribution (SD) standard application benchmark of 180,000 SAP SD-Parallel benchmark users(4).
  • The new world-record result of 180,000 SAP SD-Parallel benchmark users far exceeds the performance of any IBM result ever published with the SAP SD standard application benchmark(5, 6).
  • When measured with two-, four-, six- and eight-node configurations, Oracle Database with Oracle Real Application Clusters running on Sun Fire X4800 servers with Oracle Solaris show an extraordinary ninety percent scalability, while maintaining superior performance and availability(2, 3,1, 4).

  • “These benchmark results vividly demonstrate that Oracle’s scale-out technology delivers both world-leading performance and virtually linear scalability from small systems to the largest systems,” said Juan Loaiza, senior vice president, Systems Technology, Oracle. “When it comes to meeting the needs of mission-critical enterprise customers, Oracle clearly outpaces the competition.”
