17 Mar 2016 HammerDB: SPARC T7-1 Performance Beats IBM S824, Beats x86 E5-2699 v3 [50761]
BestPerf Blog

Brian blogs, "HammerDB is an open-source database benchmarking tool that includes an On-Line Transaction Processing (OLTP) transactional workload derived from the industry standard TPC-C workload. Oracle's SPARC T7-1 server delivered 4,938,629 TPM (Transactions Per Minute) using the HammerDB workload.

The SPARC T7-1 server demonstrated OLTP performance that is 2.8 times faster per chip than Intel Xeon Processor E5-2699 v3 and 5.5 times faster per chip than an IBM POWER8 (3.5 GHz) processor. This means that a SPARC T7-1 is 1.4 times faster than a 2-chip x86 E5 v3 based server. The SPARC T7-1 server is also 1.4 times faster than an IBM Power System S824 (POWER8) server. On per core performance, the SPARC M7 processor used in the SPARC T7-1 server out performed the IBM POWER8 processor. All of these tests used Oracle Database 12c Release 1 ( Enterprise Edition for the database..."

05 Jul 2013 Blazing Performance: SPARC Microprocessors [31687]
Diana Reichardt's cover story in the latest edition of Oracle Magazine

An article by Dianna Reichart in the July/August issue of the Oracle Magazine says, "Oracle unveiled two new SPARC microprocessors, SPARC T5 and SPARC M5, and introduced a portfolio of systems based on these chips at a live event in Redwood Shores, California, on March 26. Oracle CEO Larry Ellison introduced the SPARC T5, calling it "the world's fastest microprocessor," and reported that the new SPARC T5-based systems have set 17 world records.

Specifically, the SPARC T5-8 server achieved more than 8 million transactions per minute on the TPC-C benchmark,2 Oracle Executive Vice President of Systems John Fowler told the audience. "It's simply an astonishing level of capability at a cost and performance point that no one has ever seen before, and it's a huge step for us," Fowler said.

22 Apr 2013 SPARC T5-8 Server Delivers World Record TPC-C Single System Performance Results [30424]
Bests the Performance of IBM's Top Contenders

Oracle's SPARC T5-8 server equipped with eight 3.6 GHz SPARC T5 processors achieved a world record result of 8,552,523 tpmC for a single system on the TPC-C benchmark, demonstrating this world record database performance running Oracle Database 11g Release 2 Enterprise Edition with Oracle Partitioning. This result shows that the SPARC T5-8 server is 2.4 times faster per chip compared to IBM Power 780 three-node cluster results for TPC-C tpmC and is 2.5 times less expensive per $/tpmC. The SPARC T5-8 server delivers 1.4 times better performance than the 32-processor IBM Power 595, at one-fifth the price/performance. This configuration will be available 09/25/13.

11 Apr 2012 Oracle Achieves World Record Two Processor Result with SPECjEnterprise2010 Benchmark [25962]
Record Is a 53 Percent Improvement over Previous Two-Processor Marks

Oracle WebLogic Server, running on Oracle’s Sun Fire x86 servers, together with Oracle Linux and Oracle Database 11g Release 2, set a world record result for a two-processor system with the industry-standard SPECjEnterprise2010 benchmark. This benchmark result -- 8,310.19 SPECjEnterprise2010 EjOPS (Enterprise Operations Per Second -- is the highest EjOPS per core and per processor of any result ever published with the SPECjEnterprise2010 benchmark. This Oracle configuration delivered a 53 percent improvement upon the previous best two processor result, showcasing the performance of Sun Fire x86 servers, based on new Intel Xeon E5 processors, running Oracle software across multiple tiers.

26 Mar 2012 Sun Fire X4800 M2 Delivers World Record TPC-C for x86 Systems [25800]
Outperforms IBM System p570 by a Factor of 3.1x

Oracle's Sun Fire X4800 M2 server equipped with eight 2.4 GHz Intel Xeon Processor E7-8870 chips set a world record for x86 servers of 4,803,718 tpmC on the TPC-C benchmark with a price performance of $0.98/tpmC. The server was running Oracle Database 11g Release 2 Enterprise Edition with Partitioning and the Oracle Linux OS. This configuration will become available on June 26, 2012. This is the first TPC-C result on any system using eight Intel Xeon Processor E7-8800 Series chips, and the Sun Fire X4800 M2 server is the first x86 system to get over 4 million tpmC.
