Cisco Announces Industry-Leading TPC-C and TPC-H Benchmark Performance on Cisco UCS!

- December 23, 2011 - 0 Comments

Cisco continues its performance leadership with the announcement of its inaugural  TPC-C and TPC-H benchmark results on the Cisco Unified Computing System (Cisco UCS™) platform .  On December 7th 2011, Cisco published two industry standard benchmarks from Transaction Processing Performance Council (TPC) on the Cisco UCS platform.

Cisco’s leading TPC-H result demonstrates the enterprise performance for Cisco UCS Servers when combined with Microsoft SQL Server, and  Cisco’s leading TPC-C result demonstrates that Cisco UCS systems represent a high-performance, cost-effective enterprise platform for Oracle Database.

Cisco UCS Demonstrates TPC-C Performance and Price/Performance Leadership

Often referred to as the flagship server benchmark that measures online transaction processing performance, TPC-C simulates a complete compute environment where a population of users runs transactions against a database.

In its first TPC-C result, Cisco demonstrates industry leadership in partnership with Oracle, establishing the Cisco UCS as the fastest two-socket Intel Xeon processor-powered platform running Oracle Database. Cisco’s leading TPC-C result demonstrates that Cisco UCS servers, combined with Oracle Database, can deliver industry-leading enterprise capabilities. Cisco’s  industry-leading TPC-C result asserts both performance and price/performance leadership.  A Cisco UCS C250 M2 Extended- Memory Rack-Mount server achieved 1,053,100 transactions per minute (tpmC) in the standard TPC-C benchmark, with a price/performance ratio of $0.58 USD per tpmC, exceeding the HP two-socket TPC-C result using identical Intel® Xeon® processors and memory capacity by 2.8 percent in performance, at a 11 percent lower price/performance ratio.

Cisco UCS Demonstrates TPC-H Performance and Price/Performance Leadership

The TPC-H benchmark is an industry-standard decision support test, designed to measure the capability of a system to examine large volumes of data, execute queries with a high degree of complexity, and give answers to critical business questions.

In its inaugural TPC-H result, Cisco asserts industry leadership in partnership with Microsoft, establishing the Cisco UCS as the fastest four-socket Intel Xeon processor-powered platform for running Microsoft SQL Server. Cisco’s recent TPC-H result offers a vivid illustration of the power of Cisco UCS servers to provide industry-leading performance and scalability at lower cost of ownershipin concert with Microsoft SQL Server. A Cisco UCS C460 M2 High- Performance Rack-Mount server achieved 134,117 queries per hour (QphH@1000 GB) in the TPC-H benchmark, with a price/performance ratio of $1.30 USD per QphH@1000 GB. This result establishes Cisco UCS’s performance and price/performance leadership, exceeding the fastest IBM four-socket TPC-H result for Microsoft SQL server by 32 percent, while providing a 26 percent lower price/performance ratio.

Please check the “ Cisco UCS Demonstrates TPC-H Performance and Price/Performance Leadership” Performance brief for benchmark configuration details.  The Cisco UCS TPC-H performance results are available at the TPC Website at http://www.tpc.org/tpch/results/tpch_result_detail.asp?id=111120801

The Cisco UCS establishes a tradition of performance and price/performance leadership on essential enterprise benchmarks with the latest Industry-leading TPC-C and TPC-H benchmark performances while delivering superior scalability and performance for enterprise applications.
