Oracle delivers world record multi-node result with SPECjAppServer2004 benchmark 

Oracle Fusion Middleware on HP Integrity server blades demonstrates superior performance and scalability.
Today, Oracle announced world record multi-node SPECjAppServer2004 benchmark results for Oracle Fusion Middleware.
The combination of Oracle WebLogic Server, a component of Oracle Fusion Middleware, together with Oracle Database 11g on mission-critical HP Integrity server blades running HP-UX 11i v3 delivered the record-breaking results, further demonstrating Oracle Fusion Middleware's leadership in Java application server performance and scalability. With this result, Oracle surpasses the best IBM WebSphere multi-node result with IBM DB2 by delivering more than 18 percent greater performance per core.

Oracle WebLogic Server 10g R 3 together with Oracle Database 11g achieved 28,463 SPECjAppServer2004 [email protected] (jAppServer Operations Per Second).  Oracle WebLogic Server was running on 17 HP Integrity BL870c server blades, each with four Intel Itanium processor 9100 series (1.6 GHz).  The database server was running on an HP Integrity Superdome server with 64 Intel Itanium processor 9100 series (1.6 GHz) and HP StorageWorks 8100 Enterprise Virtual Arrays. Both application server and database tiers were running HP-UX 11i v3. The HP Integrity BL870c blades running HP-UX 11i v3, used with Oracle WebLogic Server and Oracle Database 11g, provide organisations with a robust and reliable platform for mission-critical applications and is ideal for high-performance and technical computing requirements.

For over five years, Oracle has submitted record-setting application server benchmarks on a broad range of hardware and software platforms. Oracle is the performance and price/performance leader in multiple SPECjAppServer 2001(3) and SPECjAppServer2002(4) benchmark categories and also holds the world records for best performance and price/performance in the Ecperf (5)  benchmark of J2EE application servers reported in July 2002.

SPECjAppServer2004 is a multi-tier benchmark for measuring the performance of a representative J2EE application and each of the components that make up the application environment, including hardware, application server software, JVM software, database software, JDBC drivers and the system network.
