REDWOOD SHORES, Calif., July 30 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ --

-- Today, Oracle announced a world record non-clustered TPC-H One Terabyte (TB) benchmark result for Oracle(R) Database 11g running on a Sun SPARC(R) Enterprise Server(1). This benchmark represents the fastest TPC-H One TB performance result for a non-clustered configuration, outperforming the best Microsoft result in this category at a lower price/performance cost(2).

-- Running on a Sun SPARC Enterprise M9000 Server with 32 dual-core SPARC64 VI 2.4 GHz processors using the Solaris(TM) 10 Operating System (OS), Oracle Database 11g achieved a world record non-clustered performance of 118,573.3 QphH1000GB with a price of $24.12/QphH@1000GB. In this benchmark result, Oracle delivered 69 percent more performance at 16 percent less price/performance cost than the best Microsoft TPC-H One TB result.

The performance metric is called the TPC-H Composite Query-per-Hour Performance Metric (QphH@Size) and reflects multiple aspects of the capability of the system to process queries.
