Oracle Application Server 10g Release 3 coupled with Oracle Database 10g, achieved an outstanding performance result of 1,111.96 SPECJAppServer2004 JOPS@Standard (jAppServer Operations Per Second). Both were running on Rackable Systems C2002 high efficiency servers powered by dual Quad-Core Intel(R) Xeon(R) 2.66 GHz processors on Linux.

"This benchmark reconfirms that Oracle Application Server provides customers with industry leading performance and scalability, in addition to being the best platform to develop, integrate, deploy and manage business critical enterprise applications, portals and Web services," said Juan Loaiza, Oracle senior vice president, Systems Technology. "Customers rely on Oracle Application Server 10g to meet the demands of next-generation middleware architectures supporting SOA, EDA and Web 2.0."

Over the past 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(2) and SPECjAppServer2002(3) benchmark categories and also holds the world records for best performance and price/performance in the ECperf(4) benchmark of J2EE application servers reported in July 2002.

SPECjAppServer2004 is a client/server 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. The workload is an application that emulates information flow among an automotive dealership, manufacturing, supply chain management and an order/inventory system.
