Running on an IBM System p 570 with two dual-core 4.7 GHz POWER6 processors, Oracle Database 10g Release 2 achieved 404,462.54 tpmC (transactions per minute) with a price-performance ratio of $3.50/tpmC — a record achievement in 4-core performance.

Oracle also recently achieved world record results(2) for 4-core(3) and 8-core(4) performance on the two-tier SAP(R) Sales and Distribution (SD) Standard Application Benchmark, on similar IBM hardware, demonstrating that Oracle Database 10g Release 2 delivers exceptional linear scaling as more cores are added to the configuration.

"This TPC-C benchmark result, as well as those from the recent two-tier SAP SD Benchmarks, reinforces Oracle Database 10g's performance and scalability leadership," said Juan Loaiza, Oracle Senior Vice President Systems Technology. "It also demonstrates that Oracle Database takes full advantage of advances made in servers like IBM's p 570 to continue providing customers with unprecedented performance and scalability."

Oracle Database 10g provides a unified data management platform for cost-effective, scalable and high-performing online transaction processing (OLTP) and data warehousing implementations. Oracle's latest benchmark builds upon its extensive history of providing world-class performance, availability and security for today's intense OLTP systems.

About TPC-C

TPC-C is an OLTP (online transaction processing) benchmark developed by the Transaction Processing Performance Council (TPC). The TPC-C benchmark defines a rigorous standard for calculating performance and price/performance measured by transactions per minute (tpmC) and $/tpmC, respectively.
