Cisco UCS Demonstrates Enterprise Performance for RISC/UNIX Migration Opportunities

- January 17, 2012 - 0 Comments

Benchmarks can be invaluable when it comes to making a decision on whether to migrate mission-critical applications, especially those benchmarks that are frequently referenced by enterprise IT organizations when making decisions about which platform to use as their Oracle Database. The TPC-C benchmark is often referred to as the flagship server benchmark that measures online transaction processing (OLTP) performance by simulating a complete compute environment where a population of users runs transactions against a database. In many instances online transaction processing is critical to business operations and the systems that run these applications must have high performance and be reliable.

Cisco Unified Computing System™ (Cisco UCS™) servers, combined with Oracle Database software, recently delivered a result with outstanding performance and leadership price-performance versus 2-socket RISC/UNIX platforms. The Cisco UCS C250 M2 delivered more than four times better performance that an HP Integrity rx6600 with 78% lower price-performance and 16% better price-performance than the IBM Power 780.

In an era in which IT budgets are shrinking, the high costs to rollout and support applications based on RISC/UNIX systems becomes more and more unappealing. This new TPC-C result is just another example of how Cisco UCS can deliver performance that businesses require for their enterprise applications at lower costs.

I urge you to check out our RISC/UNIX Migration Program page for additional performance briefs, case studies, white papers, and migration guides.
