Oracle and HP set new world record three terabyte TPC-H benchmark result

Oracle has announced a new world record TPC-H three terabyte data warehousing benchmark result for Oracle Database 10g Release 2 on HP Integrity servers, demonstrating both companies' ability to manage large-scale data warehouses.
Running on a single HP Integrity Superdome server with 64 Intel(r) Itanium(r) 2 1.6 GHz processors with 9MB cache using the HP-UX 11i operating environment, Oracle Database 10g Release 2 achieved world record performance of 71,847.8 QphH@3000GB with a price- performance ratio of $56/QphH@3000GB.
Utilising the same number of processors as utilized in an IBM TPC-H benchmark, this record-breaking result outperforms the recently published three-terabyte TPC-H result by IBM DB2 running on an IBM eServer xSeries 346 by more than 30 percent.
"Oracle Database 10g Release 2 continues Oracle's track record of performance leadership on HP Integrity servers, providing customers with the highest performance at the best value," said Richard Sarwal, vice president, Server Performance, Oracle.
"With Oracle, customers can count on getting the maximum return on their investment."
HP and Oracle have always been committed to delivering highly available, scalable, reliable and affordable decision support systems," said Don Jenkins, vice president of marketing, Business Critical Servers, HP. "Because HP Integrity servers are designed for managing the most demanding workloads, coupled with the scalability of the HP-UX 11i operating environment, they complement the performance of Oracle Database 10g for customers."
This benchmark adds to the extensive list of Oracle Database 10g performance world records, in which Oracle holds eight of the top nine three-terabyte TPC-H results. As the leading database for production data warehousing, Oracle Database 10g provides a single, integrated database engine for scalable and high performing data warehousing implementations. This new record-breaking benchmark illustrates why customers choose Oracle and HP Integrity servers to run very large databases.
