The Netra SPARC T4-2 server demonstrates 41% better performance than the SPARC T3-2 server January 16, 2012,
Volume 167, Issue 3
Oracle's Netra SPARC T4-2 Server equipped with two SPARC T4 processors running at 2.85 GHz set a world record result of 454.52 SPECjvm2008 Peak ops/m on the SPECjvm2008 benchmark. This result surpassed the previous record, which was run on a similar product, Oracle's SPARC T4-2 server, also a two SPARC T4 processor based system. This level of performance is 41% better than the SPARC T3-2 server and similar in performance to Oracle's SPARC T4-2 server. This result was produced using Oracle Solaris 11 and Oracle JDK 7 Update 2. The Netra SPARC T4-2 server with hardware cryptography acceleration greatly increases performance with subtests using AES and RSA encryption ciphers. There are no SPECjvm2008 results published by IBM on POWER7 based systems.
