15 Aug 2011 Sun Blade X6270 M2 with Oracle WebLogic Sets World Record on 2-Processor SPECjEnterprise 2010 Benchmark [24448]
Outperforms IBM System HS22 and IBM Power 730 Express Servers

The Sun Blade X6270 M2 two-chip server modules used Oracle WebLogic Server 11g Release 1 (10.3.5) application, Java SE 6 Update 26, and Oracle Database 11g Release 2 to set a world record performance mark against both the IBM System HS22 Server and the IBM Power 730 Express server. The X6270's results were superior to the HS22 and the 730 by 47% and 33%, respectively. The Sun Blade X6270 M2 application server was equipped with 2 x 3.46 GHz Intel Xeon X5690 chips, 48 Gigabytes (GB) of memory, and 4 x 10 GbE NIC.

23 Mar 2011 TPC-H@3TB result for the M9000 [24044]
Latest World Record Showcases Superior Performance to HP and IBM

The superior scalability of Oracle Database 11g Release 2 running on Oracle’s SPARC Enterprise M9000 server was proven as the configuration established a new world record non-clustered TPC-H 3TB benchmark result, delivering nearly twice the performance of the previous best score, also an Oracle record. Running on a SPARC Enterprise M9000 server, equipped with 64 SPARC64 VII+ 3.0 GHz processors, and Sun Storage 6180 arrays, Oracle Database 11g Release 2 with Oracle Solaris achieved a world record TPC-H 3 TB non-clustered performance result of 386,478 QphH@3000GB with a price of $19.25/QphH@3000GB, according to Oracle's press release. This result is 2.4 times faster than the IBM Power 595 system; the entire database loaded 3.3 times faster than the IBM Power 595 while maintaining the highest level of data protection at a lower cost per transaction. Neither IBM nor HP matched this level of performance in the 3TB scale factor category using a single system, Oracle's release concludes, which further highlights the performance capabilities of multi-processor SPARC systems in the most demanding enterprise application environments.

03 Sep 2010 Sun Storage 6180 Array Outperforms IBM DS5020 [23440]
Better Price/Performance Numbers Using Both RAID 5 and 6

Using the SPC Benchmark-1 to determine price-performance ratios for a number of storage systems, the benchmark delivered results that demonstrate a 1.9 X advantage for the Sun Storage 6180 (8Gb) array over the IBM DS5020, reported a Sun BestPerf blog. In another blog entry, testing of the same storage arrays on the SPC Benchmark-2 produced some interesting price-performance results as well.
