CMT servers to power the database, along with Sun’s new flash
technology to speed I/O.

Oracle Real A
pplication Clusters is in production use at thousands of
customers, enabling transparent scaling of real
-
world business
applications.



With this benchmark, Oracle and Sun become the first vendors to achieve
world record TPC

Using the Sun™ Storage F5100 Flash Array, Oracle and Sun were able to
set the world record using eight times less hardware than IBM used for its
largest benchmark (3).



The Oracle
-
Sun configuration consumed four times less energy than the

IBM configuration even though it ran 26 percent faster.



Oracle Database 11g running on the Solaris™ 10 Operating System
achieved a record
-
breaking 7.7 million tpmC at $2.34/tpmC.
