Cisco Announces Four World-record Oracle E-Business Suite Performance Results on Cisco UCS

October 8, 2012 - 0 Comments

Cisco continues a tradition of enterprise application performance leadership with four new world records on Oracle E-Business Suite benchmarks, demonstrating that Cisco Unified Computing System™ (Cisco UCS®) powers business-critical software better than any other server vendor.

In four of the Oracle E-Business Suite Standard Benchmarks, the Cisco UCS B200 M3 Blade Server delivered the best performance of any server, regardless of configuration or number of processor cores.

The benchmarks were run in a two-tier configuration with a single Cisco UCS B200 M3 Blade Server hosting both the database and the application server instances, all running on a single Oracle Linux image.

Cisco UCS B200 M3: Dominating the Landscape for Oracle E-Business Suite Performance

  • Cisco is the first to demonstrate results on the Oracle E-Business Suite Applications R12 (12.1.3) Large Model Order-to-Cash Benchmark with a score  of 232,739 lines per hour, setting the standard for performance on this new benchmark version
  • Cisco’s score of 221,239 lines per hour on the Oracle E-Business Suite R12 (12.1.2) Large Model Order-to- Cash Benchmark outperforms IBM’s Power 7 processor score by more than 63 percent, demonstrating how Intel Integrated I/O helps eliminate data bottlenecks and streamline operations
  • The Cisco UCS B200 M3 outperformed the Sun X3-2L server by more than 6 percent with a score of 839,865 employees per hour on the Oracle E-Business Suite R12 (12.1.3) Extra-Large Model Payroll Benchmark. This result highlights superior storage access performance through the high-performance and low-latency unified fabric that carries both network and I/O traffic in Cisco UCS.
  • Cisco’s Oracle E-Business Suite R12 (12.1.2) Extra-Large Model Payroll Benchmark score of 835,189 again outperforms the IBM Power 7 result, this time by nearly 19 percent, helping demonstrate the balance of CPU, memory, and I/O performance that Cisco UCS offers.

These results demonstrate not just superior performance, but also how customers can power their enterprise applications with a cost-effective, high-performance system built on industry standards: Cisco UCS, Intel Xeon processors, and EMC VNX storage.
