    PR: HP Achieves First Linux Clustered Oracle Applications Standard Benchmark
    Thursday May 22 2003 @ 04:32PM EDT

    PALO ALTO, Calif., May 22, 2003 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- HP (NYSE:HPQ) announced today that industry-standard HP ProLiant servers running SuSE Linux Enterprise Server 8 have achieved the industry's first clustered Oracle(R) Applications Standard Benchmark (OASB)(1) on Linux. The benchmark further showcases HP's leadership in delivering highly available and scalable Oracle9i Database with Real Application Clusters based solutions in Linux environments, demonstrating the advantage of running mission-critical applications on HP ProLiant servers with Linux.

    "Enterprise customers look to HP ProLiant servers running SuSE Linux Enterprise Server as the optimal platform to achieve unparalleled scalability and performance for Oracle E-Business Suite at a much lower price point," said Martin Fink, vice president of Linux, HP. "Unlike competitors, HP offers customers complete solutions based on industry-standard open systems, including HP OpenView and HP StorageWorks, all of which reduce total cost of ownership and offer a robust, secure and scalable environment to support mission-critical applications."

    Testing for the first clustered Linux OASB benchmark was conducted on Oracle E-Business Suite version 11.5.6 and Oracle 9i Database with Real Application Clusters v9.2.0.1, achieving the highest performance results of 6,832 concurrent users and an average response time of 1.24 seconds, while running on a 2-node second-generation HP ProLiant DL580 cluster running SuSE Linux Enterprise Server 8, powered by UnitedLinux.

    "Oracle's ongoing commitment to Linux is further demonstrated by the tightly integrated engineering work with HP and SuSE on the world's first clustered Linux OASB," said Dave Dargo, vice president, System Platforms Division, Oracle. "This benchmark demonstrates a combined solution than can provide enterprise customers high availability and scalability in their Linux deployments of Oracle database and application solutions."

    "This benchmark could not have been achieved without the close working relationship and joint engineering efforts between HP, Oracle and SuSE Linux," said Uwe Heine, Chief Alliance Officer, SuSE Linux. "Enterprise customers can now clearly see the performance and cost benefits of this HP, Oracle, and SuSE Linux solution."

    HP offers Linux certified configurations from all leading Linux distributors, including SuSE Linux. More information about HP's partner initiatives for Linux can be found at:
