This world record dual-node result with Oracle WebLogic Server 11g, using a total of eight processors, delivered over 50 percent more performance than IBM WebSphere's best eight processor SPECjEnterprise2010 result running IBM DB2 9.7 on a POWER7 server.
The Java application server was running on a two-node Cisco Unified Computing System B440 M2 server each with four, ten-core Intel Xeon E7-4870 2.4 GHz processors with Intel Turbo Boost Technology. Both the application server and database server were running Oracle Linux.
The record result achieved 26,118.67 SPECjEnterprise2010 EjOPS, the highest EjOPS per processor of any SPECjEnterprise2010 result to date, showcasing the superior performance and scalability of Oracle WebLogic Server 11g.
Underscoring the scalability and superior performance of Oracle's leading application server software running on x86 hardware, Oracle WebLogic Server now holds the overall world record and the best dual-node benchmark results in addition to delivering the highest EjOPS per processor and per core 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 world record dual-node benchmark result showcases the superior performance, scalability and flexibility of Oracle WebLogic Server 11g", stated Juan Loaiza, senior vice president, Systems Technology, Oracle.
"The unique, integrated architecture of Cisco Unified Computing System has enabled our customers to achieve a whole new level of application performance. Many world records have been attained on benchmarks with Oracle software and UCS in the past two years, which is a solid proof point to the performance leadership of Cisco and Oracle", stated Soni Jiandani, senior vice president, Server, Access, and Virtualization Technology Group, for Cisco.
