SPARC T5-4 Produces World Record Single Server TPC-H @3000GB Benchmark Result [31400]
SPARC T5-4 server with 4 SPARC T5 processors is 2.1 times faster than the IBM Power 780 server with 8 POWER7 processors

Oracle's SPARC T5-4 server delivered world record single server performance of 409,721 QphH@3000GB with price/performance of $3.94/QphH@3000GB on the TPC-H @3000GB benchmark. This result shows that the 4-chip SPARC T5-4 server is significantly faster than the 8-chip server results from IBM (POWER7 based) and HP (Intel x86 based).

This result demonstrates a complete data warehouse solution that shows the performance both of individual and concurrent query processing streams, faster loading, and refresh of the data during business operations. The SPARC T5-4 server delivers superior performance and cost efficiency when compared to the IBM POWER7 result...

SPARC T5-8 Delivers Best Single System SPECjEnterprise2010 Benchmark running WebLogic 12c [31404]
27,843.57 SPECjEnterprise2010 EjOPS

Oracle produced a world record single-server SPECjEnterprise2010 benchmark result of 27,843.57 SPECjEnterprise2010 EjOPS using one of Oracle's SPARC T5-8 servers for both the application and the database tier.

  • The SPARC T5-8 server ran the Oracle Solaris 11.1 operating system and used Oracle Solaris Zones to consolidate eight Oracle WebLogic application server instances and one database server instance to achieve this result. The IBM system used LPARS and AIX V7.1.

  • This result demonstrated less than 1 second average response times for all SPECjEnterprise2010 transactions and represents JEE 5.0 transactions generated by 227,500 users.

  • The application server used Oracle Fusion Middleware components including the Oracle WebLogic 12.1 application server and Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM on Solaris, version 1.7.0_15. The database server was configured with Oracle Database 11g Release 2.

  • The 8-chip SPARC T5 processor based server is 2.6x faster than the 8-chip IBM POWER7+ processor based server.

Siebel 8.1.1.4 Benchmark on SPARC T5 [30630]
Highest User Count to Date in this Benchmark

Oracle SPARC T5 servers have set have new Siebel 8.1.1.4 benchmark results executed on a mix of SPARC T5-2, SPARC T4-2 and SPARC T4-1 servers, simulating the actions of a large corporation with 40,000 concurrent active users, Giri Mandalika posts. Throughput on the Financial Services Call Center mode was 273,786 transactions/hour for 28,000 users; for Order Management, it was 59,553 transactions/hour for 12,000 users. Siebel database was hosted on a Sun Storage F5100 Flash Array consisting 80 x 24 GB flash modules (FMODs). Fourteen iPlanet Web Server virtual servers were configured with Siebel Web Server Extension (SWSE) plug-in to handle 40,000 concurrent user load.

SPARC T5-2 Achieves JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Benchmark World Records [30620]
Bests IBM Power 770 by 1.4x

Oracle's SPARC T5-2 two-chip server running Oracle Solaris Containers and consolidating JD Edwards EnterpriseOne, Oracle WebLogic servers and the Oracle Database 11g Release 2 produced World Record batch throughput for single system results on Oracle's JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Day-in-the-Life benchmark. The SPARC T5-2 delivered 12,000 online users at 180 msec average response time while concurrently executing a mix of JD Edwards EnterpriseOne long and short batch processes at 198.5 UBEs/min (Universal Batch Engines per minute). The SPARC T5-2 delivered throughput of 880 UBEs/min while executing the batch-only workload performance throughput 2.7x faster per chip than the IBM Power 770 four-chip server.
