    PR: HP Announces First Linux Cluster TPC-C Benchmark with Oracle and Red Hat
    Monday September 16 2002 @ 01:16PM EDT

    Red Hat Linux Advanced Server Running on HP ProLiant Servers Ready for Enterprise-class Deployments

    PALO ALTO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sept. 16, 2002--HP (NYSE:HPQ - News) today announced that HP ProLiant servers have delivered the first Linux TPC-C benchmark results running Oracle 9i Real Application Clusters on the Red Hat Linux Advanced Server operating system. With this benchmark, HP ProLiant servers become the first industry-standard server platform to offer enterprise-class performance for a clustered Oracle database in a Linux environment.

    Demonstrating the cost and maintenance benefits of running Linux-based hardware and software in enterprise-operating environments, an 8-node cluster of HP ProLiant DL580 servers using Intel(R) Pentium(R) III Xeon processors and HP StorageWorks MSA1000 storage system achieved 138,362.03 tpmC (transactions per minute) at a cost of $17.21/tpmC with Red Hat Linux Advanced Server.

    TPC is a non-profit corporation founded to define transaction processing and database benchmarks and to disseminate objective, verifiable TPC performance data to the industry.

    The results demonstrate that HP ProLiant servers currently offer the best price/performance ratio for companies choosing to deploy Oracle9i Real Application Clusters on Linux. Complete benchmark results and details are available at http://www.tpc.org.

    "HP is committed to working with leading partners, including Oracle and Red Hat, to bring proven, enterprise-ready deployment solutions for Linux to market," said Rick Becker, vice president, Operating System Alliances, and chief technology officer of software, HP Industry Standard Servers. "Benchmark testing of this caliber requires commitment, experience and considerable resources -- all of which HP is dedicated to providing to validate Linux-based solutions for our industry-standard ProLiant servers. The results of the benchmark prove that HP delivers one of the most cost-effective, high-performance, and manageable Linux-based database solutions available today."

    "With Linux demonstrating that it's an attractive enterprise computing option, companies are looking to deploy proven applications for Linux," said Doug Kennedy, vice president, Platform Alliance, Platform Technologies Division, Oracle Corporation. "Through our strong engineering partnership with HP and extensive testing of our combined solutions, Oracle can now deliver our flagship database solutions on industry-standard HP ProLiant servers running Red Hat Linux Advanced Server with the same levels of reliability, scalability and performance enterprises have come to rely on from other operating systems."

    "The benchmark on HP ProLiant servers demonstrates that Red Hat Linux Advanced Server is ready for robust, high-performance, highly available, enterprise-level applications," said Paul Cormier, executive vice president of engineering, Red Hat. "Red Hat will continue to work with leading partners, including HP and Oracle, to test and demonstrate the viability of running enterprise-ready applications on Red Hat Linux Advanced Server."

    HP parallel database cluster solutions for Oracle 9i Real Application Clusters on Red Hat will be available soon as fully pre-installed solutions (hardware, software and installation included) via HP integration partners or as a custom-designed solution direct from HP.

    HP has more servers certified for Red Hat Linux Advanced Server than any other technology provider. Information about additional HP ProLiant servers certified for Red Hat Linux Advanced Server is available at http://hardware.redhat.com/hcl/.
