Oracle solutions continue to make their mark on the IT world, the most recent being the world record performance of Oracle E-Business Suite Standard Medium multiple-online module benchmark using Oracle's SPARC T4-2 and SPARC T4-4 servers, which ran the application and database. The results demonstrate that a multi-tier configuration of SPARC T4 servers running the Oracle E-Business Suite R12.1.2 application and Oracle Database 11g Release 2 is capable of supporting 4,100 online users with outstanding response-times of 2.08 seconds, executing a mix of complex transactions consolidating four Oracle E-Business modules (iProcurement, Order Management, Customer Service and HR Self-Service). Oracle reports that the SPARC T4-2 server in the application tier utilized about 65% capacity and the SPARC T4-4 server in the database tier utilized about 30%, providing significant headroom for additional Oracle E-Business Suite R12.1.2 processing modules, more online users, and future growth.
