Oracle and HP Set World Record Transaction Per Minute Mark--Again

The record Transaction Processing Council benchmark of 1,184,893.38 transactions per minute was achieved on a cluster of HP Integrity servers running Linux.

Oracle and HP have set a world record Transaction Processing Council benchmark of 1,184,893.38 transactions per minute on a cluster of HP Integrity servers running Linux.

The record was achieved using Oracle Database 10g and HP Integrity rx5670 servers running Intel Itanium 2 processors and Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS 3.0. Tuesday's announcement came not long after the recent world record single-system scale-up benchmark announcement by Oracle and HP--the first result to surpass 1 million transactions per minute with the Transaction Processing Council's TPC-C benchmark.

According to HP, the Integrity rx5670 cluster achieved 1,184,893.38 transactions per minute with a price/performance ratio of $5.52/tpmC. The vendor says that result is more than 50% faster than the nearest competitive hardware vendor. The benchmark was completed on a 16-node cluster of four-way HP Integrity rx5670 servers running Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS 3.0 and Oracle Database 10g with Real Application Clusters. The cluster configuration used HP StorageWorks storage solutions including the Modular SAN Array 1000 with 18-Gbyte, 36-Gbyte, and 146-Gbyte drives.
