Cisco UCS Delivers Industry’s Best 2-Socket Performance Result on New SPECjbb2015 Benchmark


October 1, 2015 - 1 Comment

The Cisco UCS® C220 M4 Rack Server continues its tradition of Industry leadership with the latest announcement of the first top 2-socket performance for max- jOPS in a multiple–Java virtual machine (JVM) environment ahead of other vendors.

Some of the key highlights of Cisco’s new SPECjbb2015 benchmark results are:

  • Cisco UCS C220 M4 server delivered a performance record of 92,463 SPECjbb2015 MultiJVM max-jOPS with 31,654 SPECjbb2015 MultiJVM critical-jOPS
  • Cisco UCS C220 M4 Rack Server posted the best 2-Socket SPECjbb2015 Benchmark Result Ever for Multi-JVM max-jOPs.
  • Cisco posted the first top 2-socket Multi-JVM max-jOPs performance result on the new SPECjbb2015 benchmark ahead of other vendors.

The benchmark configuration consisted of the benchmark controller, back-end, and transaction injector functions, each running on its own JVM. The JVM instances ran on a Cisco UCS C220 M4 Rack Server powered by two 18- core Intel Xeon processor E5-2699 v3 CPUs running a single instance of Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) Server 6.5 and 64-bit Oracle Java HotSpot Server Virtual Machine (VM) 1.8.0_60. Check out the Performance Brief for additional information on the benchmark configuration. The detailed official benchmark disclosure report is available at the SPECjbb2015 Website.

The new  SPECjbb2015 benchmark has enhancements that align with the changes that you are experiencing in your own IT organization—thus giving you a more accurate capacity measurement than previous versions of the benchmark.

Let’s take a look at what this UCS C220 M4 SPECjbb2015 performance result  means for the end users and customers…

When you choose Cisco UCS servers, customers benefit from the performance and rapid deployment capabilities of Cisco UCS.

Additionally you gain business advantages such as:

Accelerated response: Cisco tunes the chip sets and servers for specific workloads. With high-performance processors, large and fast memory configurations, and efficient use of Intel Turbo Boost Technology, the Cisco UCS C220 M4 delivers low latency and server optimization to JVMs.

Increased scalability: The benchmark results show that the Cisco UCS C220 M4 delivers excellent scalability to JVMs and applications.

Data center simplification: Cisco UCS delivers the scalability needed for large Java application deployments. The dramatic reduction in the number of physical components results in a system that makes effective use of limited space, power, and cooling resources by deploying less infrastructure to perform the same, or even more work.

Although all vendors have access to same Intel processors, only Cisco UCS unleashes their power to deliver high performance to applications through the power of unification. The unique, fabric-centric architecture of Cisco UCS integrates the Intel Xeon processors into a system with a better balance of resources that brings processor power to life. .

  1. Seriously? Industry’s Best 2-Socket Performance Result on New SPECjbb2015 Benchmark? Oracle's new SPARC T7-1 (1-socket) server with just a single SPARC M7 processor chip with 32-cores ECLIPSES the 2-socket Cisco UCS C220 M4 with 36-cores by a whopping 30% (120,603 max-jOPS) and a more astounding 90% faster on the critical-jOPS test (60,280 critical-jOPS), where SLA's matter. The SPARC T7-1 system blows away the Cisco system with 47% to 2x faster/core for massive reduction in licensed per core Oracle JAVA based SW like Weblogic. And looking at list pricing with same RAM, the SPARC T7-1 is CHEAPER than the Cisco UCS C220 M4. Time to re-evaluate the performance messaging!
