Oracle Sets World Record in Performance on Bull NovaScale Server

Originally published February 3, 2006

Bull and Oracle recently announced a new record-setting TPC-H One Terabyte benchmark for a 32 processor system running Oracle Database 10g Release 2 on Linux and using the Xyratex RS-1600-FC2 storage enclosures.

Running on a Bull NovaScale 6320, with 32 Intel Itanium 2 1.6 GHz 6 MB L3 Cache processors on Linux, Oracle Database 10g Release 2 achieved record performance and price-performance for a 32 CPU system.

"The Xyratex SBOD enclosure features direct disk to controller communications providing improved performance levels, increased data availability and reductions in latency; these are all factors that contribute significantly to overall solution performance," said Jon Haley VP Sales, EMEA & APJ, Xyratex Storage Systems. "Xyratex congratulates Oracle and Bull and is excited to have participated in this excellent achievement."

This latest benchmark adds to the extensive list of Oracle Database 10g performance world records, including world record performance benchmark results in the TPC-H 3 TB, and TPC-H 10 TB scale factor categories with Oracle Database 10g Release 2. Oracle Database 10g provides a single, integrated database engine for scalable and high performing data warehousing implementations.
