Recently, Oracle announced that Oracle WebLogic Server 11g, a component of Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g, together with Oracle Database 11g Release 2 running on Oracle Solaris, the #1 enterprise operating system and Oracle’s new SPARC T4-4 servers achieved an overall world record result, in addition to setting the highest result ever achieved with a clustered database, with the industry-standard SPECjEnterprise2010 benchmark (1).
This benchmark result delivers 2.4 times more performance than IBM, shattering their best result achieved on POWER7-based servers running IBM WebSphere and DB2 database (2), showcasing the outstanding performance and scalability of the entire Oracle stack, from web server software to storage hardware.
Compared to IBM’s best result, this world record also demonstrates the outstanding performance of the new SPARC T4 processor that delivers 20 percent more work per processor than POWER7 across the configuration. Comparing application server hardware, Oracle’s solution delivers 6.7 times better price/performance with nearly two times better performance per rack unit over IBM’s solution (1,2).
