11 Aug 2011 Redwood Shores - Oracle WebLogic Server 11g, a component of Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g, together with Oracle Database 11g Release 2 running on Oracle's Sun Blade X6270 M2 server module set a new record for all 2-processor systems on the industry-standard SPECjEnterprise2010 benchmark.
Oracle's integrated and optimized solution beat the best 2- processor IBM WebSphere and DB2 9.7 benchmark result using the same number of identical Intel Xeon processors, by nearly 47 percent.
Both the Application Server and Database Server were running Oracle Linux on Sun Blade X6270 M2 server modules and utilized Oracle's Sun Storage 6180 Array for all database files.
The Sun Blade X6270 M2 server module with two Intel Xeon X5690 3.46 GHz processors, delivered a record result of 5,427 SPECjEnterprise2010 EjOPS recording the highest EjOPS per core of any SPECjEnterprise2010 result to date.
Underscoring the scalability and superior performance of Oracle's leading application server software running on x86 hardware, Oracle's WebLogic Server now holds the overall world record and the best 2- processor system benchmark in addition to delivering the highest performance per core and per processor of any result ever published on SPECjEnterprise 2010 benchmark.
SPECjEnterprise2010 is a Java Platform, Enterprise Edition (Java EE)-based industry standard benchmark, which tests an end-to-end technology infrastructure that includes server hardware, Java Virtual Machine (JVM), database, operating system, storage and network subsystems.
For the past decade, Oracle has consistently produced record-setting Java application server benchmarks across a broad range of hardware architectures and operating systems.
"This latest superior benchmark result with Oracle WebLogic Server 11g and Oracle Database 11g Release 2 running on our Sun Blade X6270 M2 server clearly demonstrates Oracle's leadership position against IBM's WebSphere and DB2 9.7 running on a similar hardware configuration", stated Juan Loaiza, senior vice president, Systems Technology, Oracle. "As a part of this end-to-end solution from Oracle, WebLogic Server 11g delivers the highest levels of availability and performance of any application server on the market today providing our customers with a gold standard for deploying both complex multi-tier applications as well as departmental web applications."
