In that test, the SPARC T5-2 server:

Showed the best performance per socket for a single system in the application tier Demonstrated 1.5 times higher performance compared to Oracle's 2-socket Sun Server X4-2 systems, running Intel's E5-2600 v2 series processor (Ivy Bridge) Delivered 29% better performance and 20% better price performance compared to a two-socket IBM PowerLinux POWER7+ processor-based server

01 Feb 2014 SPARC T5-2 Server Shatters Another World Record and Gets Single-Processor Configuration [34673]
SPARC T5-2 server is now offered in a single-processor configuration

Since their introduction last year, Oracle's T5 servers have topped performance metrics across enterprise workloads. The SPARC T5 server has just shattered another world record (see the latest SPECjEnterprise2010 2-socket benchmark result). In that test, the SPARC T5-2 server:

  • Showed the best performance per socket for a single system in the application tier
  • Demonstrated 1.5 times higher performance compared to Oracle's 2-socket Sun Server X4-2 systems, running Intel's E5-2600 v2 series processor (Ivy Bridge)
  • Delivered 29% better performance (1) and 20% better price performance compared to a two-socket IBM PowerLinux POWER7+ processor-based server

Another piece of good news is that Oracle is announcing that the SPARC T5-2 server is now offered in a single-processor configuration, making it easier to adopt Oracle's latest technology

23 Jan 2014 SPARC T5-2 Delivers World Record 2-Socket Application Server [34573]
for SPECjEnterprise2010 Benchmark

Oracle's SPARC T5-2 servers have set the world record for the SPECjEnterprise2010 benchmark using two-socket application servers with a result of 17,033.54 SPECjEnterprise2010 EjOPS. The result used two SPARC T5-2 servers, one server for the application tier and the other server for the database tier.

The SPARC T5-2 server delivered 29% more performance compared to the 2-socket IBM PowerLinux server result of 13,161.07 SPECjEnterprise2010 EjOPS.

The two SPARC T5-2 servers have 1.2x better price performance than the two IBM PowerLinux 7R2 POWER7+ processor-based servers (based on hardware plus software configuration costs for both tiers). The price performance of the SPARC T5-2 server is $35.99 compared to the IBM PowerLinux 7R2 at $44.75.

The SPARC T5-2 server demonstrated 1.5x more performance compared to Oracle's x86-based 2-socket Sun Server X4-2 system (Ivy Bridge) result of 11,259.88 SPECjEnterprise2010 EjOPS. Oracle holds the top x86 2-socket application server SPECjEnterprise2010 result.

This SPARC T5-2 server result represents the best performance per socket for a single system in the application tier of 8,516.77 SPECjEnterprise2010 EjOPS per socket.

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_45. The database server was configured with Oracle Database 12c Release 1.

This result demonstrated less than 1 second average response times for all SPECjEnterprise2010 transactions and represents Jave EE 5.0 transactions generated by 139,000 users.
