Right before the recently concluded  Oracle Open World 2012., Cisco announced world-record  TPC-C performance with Oracle Database 11g Standard Edition demonstrating continuing industry leadership for database performance with the Cisco Unified Computing System™ (Cisco UCS®).

The tested configuration consisted of a Cisco UCS 240 M3 equipped with two Intel Xeon processors E5-2690 at 2.9 GHz with 768 GB of main memory. The server ran Oracle Database 11g Standard Edition One and Oracle Linux with Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel Release 2. The client tier consisted of two Cisco UCS C200 M2 servers. The storage system consisted of two Violin 6000 series arrays.

World-record TPC-C Result on Cisco UCS C240 M3 Rack Server: Fastest Two-Socket Database Server

Cisco’s world-record Transaction Processing Performance Council (TPC) result of 1,609,186 transactions per minute in the TPC-C benchmark (tpmC), with a price-to-performance ratio of US$0.47 per tpmC ($/tpmC), in combination with Oracle Database, delivered world-record performance for 2-socket servers at lower cost than the competition.

With the newest world-record-setting TPC-C benchmark result, Cisco establishes a tradition of delivering more performance at less cost than the competition and of delivering significant performance gains with each successive generation of its own products. The Cisco UCS TPC-C performance results are available at the TPC Website at Cisco UCS C240 M3 Rack Server
