Raspberry Pi vs SPARCstation 20: Fight! [48737]
Eschatology, December 26th, 2015

eschaton blogs, "A couple weeks back, I tweeted the following:

  • Turns out a Raspberry Pi now is about 6x as fast as a SPARCstation 20 was 20 years ago. And a Pi 2 is more like 15x as fast.

I was a little low in my numbers, too - they're more like 7x and 16x to 41x as fast - since I was going from memory!

Here's how I came up with that..."

Oracle Magazine - Special Edition [48747]
December 2015

Recent benchmarks show that Oracle Database 12c In-Memory outperforms SAP's HANA in-memory database. So why is the loser protesting the results?

In an enterprise technology world featuring too much hot air and not enough world-class technology, SAP has done an excellent job spreading the myth that its five-year-old HANA database delivers game-changing performance for its customers' businesses. But SAP's problem is that HANA's performance simply can't match the marketing hyperbole SAP is spreading around.

SPARC T7-2 World Record Performance for Two- and Four-Chip Systems [47678]
SPECvirt_2013 Result

Oracle's SPARC T7-2 server delivered a world record SPECvirt_sc2013 result for systems with two to four chips.

  • The SPARC T7-2 server produced a result of 3198 @ 179 VMs SPECvirt_sc2013.

  • The two-chip SPARC T7-2 server beat the best four-chip x86 Intel E7-8890 v3 server (HP ProLiant DL580 Gen9), demonstrating that the SPARC M7 processor is 2.1 times faster than the Intel Xeon Processor E7-8890 v3 (chip-to-chip comparison).

  • The two-chip SPARC T7-2 server beat the best two-chip x86 Intel E5-2699 v3 server results by nearly 2 times (Huawei FusionServer RH2288H V3, HP ProLiant DL360 Gen9).

  • The two-chip SPARC T7-2 server delivered nearly 2.2 times the performance of the four-chip IBM Power System S824 server solution which used 3.5 GHz POWER8 six core chips.

  • The SPARC T7-2 server running Oracle Solaris 11.3 operating system, utilizes embedded virtualization products as the Oracle Solaris 11 zones, which in turn provide a low overhead, flexible, scalable and manageable virtualization environment.

  • The SPARC T7-2 server result used Oracle VM Server for SPARC 3.3 and Oracle Solaris Zones providing a flexible, scalable and manageable virtualization environment.

SPECjbb2015: [47480]
SPARC T7-1 World Record for 1 Chip Result

Oracle's SPARC T7-1 server, using Oracle Solaris and Oracle JDK, produced world record one-chip SPECjbb2015 benchmark (MultiJVM metric) results beating all previous one- and two-chip results in the process. This benchmark was designed by the industry to showcase Java performance in the Enterprise. Performance is expressed in terms of two metrics, max-jOPS which is the maximum throughput number, and critical-jOPS which is critical throughput under service level agreements (SLAs)...
