Cisco UCS C460 M4 Rack Server continues its tradition of Industry leadership with the latest announcement of two benchmark results capturing the best 4-socket server SPECjbb®2015 MultiJVM benchmark performance for max-jOPS and critical-jOPS.

The SPECjbb2015 benchmark allows vendors to demonstrate Java-based business software performance so you can evaluate the way that your software will run in real-world environments. The SPECjbb2015 benchmark provides two measures of performance: the max-jOPS metric provides a measure of overall transactional throughput, and the critical-jOPS metric provides a measure of interactive responsiveness. In two different benchmark reports, Cisco demonstrated that the Cisco UCS C460 M4 Rack Server has the flexibility to be tuned for world-record-setting performance on either the throughput or responsiveness metric.

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

  • When tuned for max-jOPS, the Cisco UCS C460 M4 delivered a score of 171,642, more than 18 percent higher than HP’s best score for the 4-socket HP ProLiant DL580 Gen9 server
  • When tuned for critical-jOPS, the Cisco UCS C460 M4 delivered a score of 99,646, or almost 96 percent higher than HP’s best posted result.
  • Your real-world workloads may require maximum interactive responsiveness or maximum throughput, and these results demonstrate that you can tune your Cisco UCS® C460 M4 Rack Server to achieve world-record-setting performance by either measure.

Server SPECjbb2015 MultiJVM max-jOPS SPECjbb2015 MultiJVM critical-jOPS Disclosure Date & Disclosure Link
Cisco UCS C460 M4 with 4 Intel Xeon processors E7-8890 v3 CPUs at 2.5 GHz 171,642, Best 4-socket Multi JVM max-jOPS Performance 53,348 October 22,2015
157382 99,646, Best 4-socket MultiJVM critical-jOPS performance October 27,2015


The benchmark configuration included the benchmark controller, back-end, and transaction injector components, each running in its own JVM. The JVM instances ran on a Cisco UCS C460 M4 Rack Server running a single instance of SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) 12 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.

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. .
