    New Database Software is World's Fastest on Linux
    Monday September 08 2003 @ 08:09PM EDT

    ORACLEWORLD, SAN FRANCISCO, -- Demonstrating its commitment to providing the most reliable and low-cost computing options to its customers, Oracle Corp. (NASDAQ:ORCL) , the world's largest enterprise software company, today announced a new world record 4-processor TPC-C single-system benchmark result running Oracle(R) Database 10g on HP Integrity servers running Linux.

    Using an industry-standard HP Integrity rx5670 64-bit server with four Intel(R) Itanium(R) 2 processors at 1.5 GHz, with 6 Mbyte of L3 cache running Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS 3.0, Oracle Database 10g server achieved 136,110.98 tpmC with a price-performance ratio of $4.09/tpmC, marking the fastest ever TPC-C single-system result on Linux and the best price performance for any 4-processor 64-bit server on the market today.

    As the first company to ship a commercial Linux database, Oracle today remains the only database vendor to collaborate with Red Hat, UnitedLinux, and other Linux experts to test, tune and improve the Linux kernel. In fact, Oracle is the only major enterprise software company to offer first-line, direct technical support for RedHat and UnitedLinux operating systems, and continues to support the open architecture by contributing significant open source code to its developer community.

    "The world's first TPC-C benchmark achieved using Linux on HP's Itanium-based hardware showed better price/performance than almost all four-way and even some competing eight-way servers," said Martin Fink, vice president of Linux, HP Enterprise Servers and Storage. "HP is working with Oracle to set new standards, bringing customers the power of enterprise-class database and applications on industry-standard HP Linux-based hardware that offer greater business agility and return on IT."

    "The outstanding performance of the Oracle Database exemplifies the growing breadth of business-critical software for the Itanium processor family," said Richard Wirt, senior fellow and general manager, Intel Software and Solutions Group. "Customers can now deploy enterprise-ready Itanium 2-based database solutions with the outstanding performance, reliability and value of Intel-based servers."

    "Enterprise customers are moving to Linux-based systems to build mission critical systems at the lowest cost," said Andrew Mendelsohn, senior vice president, Database Server Technologies at Oracle Corporation. "Using Oracle Database 10g on Linux, customers today have a choice to deploy enterprise class solutions on the lowest cost hardware and operating system infrastructure without compromising the availability, reliability, and security that businesses demand from real-world applications."
