HP Superdome leads in processing benchmarks

HP has released benchmarking results for its Superdome server that show superior performance to rivals in both online transaction processing and data-warehousing queries.

HP is celebrating the success of its Superdome server in two different benchmarking tests. The results of the benchmarks, to measure online transaction processing (OLTP) and data-warehousing performance show HP beating both Sun and IBM high-end offerings.

The Superdome server, running HP-UX 11i on 64 PA-8700+ processors, recorded superior results on both the Oracle TPC-C OLTP benchmark and the TPC-H data warehousing benchmarks to its competitors. On the OLTP test, the Superdome recorded 423,414 tpmC (transactions per minute) against 403,255 tpmC for IBM’s p690 Regatta. On the TPC-H test, HP recorded 27,094 QphH (queries per hour), compared to 23,813 QphH by Sun’s SunFire 15K. HP also has the distinction of being the only vendor to release results of both tests.

“Any company can publish a good result for a single benchmark, but publishing world record benchmarks across several workloads tests the limits of a server,” said Samer Karawi, UAE Gulf and Levant marketing manager, HP Business Critical Systems. “The fact that neither IBM nor Sun have published both benchmarks raises serious questions about the abilities of their high-end servers to deliver strong performance across varied workloads.”
