World Record Oracle Performance with Cisco UCS

September 28, 2014 at 12:00 pm PST

Oracle OpenWorld is a show like no other, with over 60,000 IT professionals convening in San Francisco for a week of all things, Oracle, Java and more. Cisco has a full slate of activities planned, including demos and theater sessions on the many benefits of running your Oracle workloads on the Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS). We’re also teaming with theCUBE to stream three days of live interviews with the industry’s leading thought leaders and Oracle solution experts. All of our activities have a common theme – Unleashing Oracle Performance.

With more than 25 world record benchmarks for Oracle workloads, Cisco has a proven record of delivering record-setting Oracle performance with each generation of server and processor technologies. This week at Oracle OpenWorld, we’re showcasing three recent world record benchmarks for Oracle E-Business Suite and critical Java operations.

Oracle E-Business Suite Applications R12 (12.1.3) Payroll and Order-to-Cash Benchmarks

E-Biz Suite GraphThe Cisco UCS® B200 M4 Blade Server with the Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 v3 product family, is the number-one server with top results on the Oracle E-Business Suite Applications R12 benchmark. The Cisco UCS B200 M4 performed over a million employees per hour on the Payroll Extra-Large Model Benchmark, outperforming the IBM Power System S824. UCS also set a world record on the Order-to-Cash workload, processing more than 11,000 more order lines per hour than the same server configured with previous-generation processors. The performance brief has all the details.

Cisco UCS Rocks at Oracle Open World

You must be thinking I am joking, when I say that there is an affinity between me and San Francisco Moscone center. Yes, August end, I was there for VMworld 2013 and September end I was back there again for Oracle Open world (OOW 2013). But there is more to my experiences at OOW this year, than this coincidence of venue.

There are two key takeaways for me from OOW. First, the news of the world record established by Cisco UCS on Oracle E-Business Suite Applications R12 benchmark. EMC CEO Joe Tucci highlighted this in his keynote as well at OOW.  Read the detailed solutions brief posted by Girish Kulkarni.

Second, Cisco UCS is the only Oracle partner platform tested and certified with Oracle NoSQLDB. Read BigData solutions brief posted in www.cisco.com/go/bigdata and Charles Lamb’s blog at https://blogs.oracle.com/charlesLamb/entry/cisco_and_oracle_nosql_database

At OOW, I had a busy week doing demos of Oracle on UCS, and enjoyed quality face time with customers and partners sharing their UCS experiences with me. Along these lines, I was able to grab some time with Jim McHugh (our VP of marketing for UCS) to specifically discuss Cisco UCS advantages for Oracle. Watch the Video here
