Running IBM AIX 5L(TM) 5.3 on a 5-node IBM System p(TM) 570 Server cluster, each with 8 dual-core 4.7 GHz POWER6 processors, Oracle Database with Oracle Real Application Clusters achieved 37,040 SAP SD-Parallel Benchmark users, outperforming the previous world record of 36,000 SD-Parallel Benchmark users, held by Oracle on the same platform configuration.(2) This world record is the highest ever measured result on the SAP SD-Parallel Standard Application Benchmark based on the number of SAP SD-Parallel Benchmark users.

In addition, Oracle and IBM also delivered excellent two, three, and four- node results on the IBM System p(TM) 570 Server cluster, demonstrating the exceptional scalability of Oracle Database with Oracle Real Application Clusters running on highly scalable SMP servers.(3) When measured from two, three, four and five-node configurations, as documented and certified by SAP, Oracle Database with Oracle Real Application Clusters shows an impressive 93 percent scalability, achieving 15,520, 22,416, 30,016 and 37,040 SAP SD- Parallel Benchmark users, respectively, while providing a high level of performance and availability.

"These benchmark results are vivid proof that Oracle Real Application Clusters delivers unique capabilities and outstanding value to customers. The stellar SAP benchmark result clearly demonstrates that Oracle Real Application Clusters provides near linear scalability as nodes are added to the cluster, even for highly advanced applications such as those from SAP," said Juan Loaiza, senior vice president, Systems Technology, Oracle. "Further, Oracle Real Application Clusters provides availability benefits that cannot be achieved in single SMP environments. The combination of linear scalability, and high availability on leading platforms such as the IBM System p(TM) 570 Server cluster provides an outstanding platform for deployments of SAP solutions."
