Fujitsu M10 achieves world-record result on two-tier SAP SD standard application benchmark

12 Jul 2013 Tokyo - The Fujitsu M10-4S running Oracle Database 11g set a new world record as of July 12, 2013 on the two-tier SAP Sales and Distribution (SD) standard application benchmark, achieving 153,000 SAP SD Benchmark users.

Fujitsu M10 - sold as SPARC M10 by Fujitsu in Japan - has achieved world records in the past, namely on benchmark tests for integer arithmetic performance (SPECint_rate2006), floating-point arithmetic performance (SPECfp_rate2006) and memory access performance (STREAM Triad). This new benchmark result underscores that the combination of Fujitsu M10 and Oracle Database delivers excellent performance for mission-critical applications including the SAP ERP application.

The two-tier SAP SD standard application benchmark running SAP enhancement package 5 for SAP ERP 6.0 tallies the number of simulated users that simultaneously access the system and obtains a response within one second. This benchmark consists of typical tasks of real-world enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems and represents practical performance achievable with mission-critical applications.

Fujitsu M10-4S with 40 SPARC64 X processors achieved the world-record result on the two-tier SAP SD standard application benchmark running Oracle Database 11g Release 2 Enterprise Edition and outperformed the second place result by more than 20%. The breakthrough technologies in both hardware and software deliver an improvement in performance by approximately five times, compared with the previous model, the SPARC Enterprise M9000.

With the core-level CPU Activation feature and building block architecture, the Fujitsu M10-4S can be dynamically scaled in accordance with the growth of a customer's business. This could be from an entry-level four-core 4U size system, all the way up to a world-record-breaking performance-level large-scale system. With this unique dynamic scaling, the Fujitsu M10 servers help customers to optimize their total cost of ownership (TCO).

This world-record performance is the result of decades of Fujitsu-Oracle partnership and represents Fujitsu's commitment to contribute to its customers' business by providing an outstanding platform in collaboration with Oracle.
