Running on a single HP Integrity Superdome server with 64-bit Intel(R) Itanium(R) 2 1.6 GHz processors with 9MB cache running the HP-UX 11i operating environment, Oracle Database 10g Release 2 achieved world record performance of 68,100.06 QphH@1000GB with a price-performance ratio of $59/QphH@1000GB. Using the same number of processors, this new record overtakes IBM DB2's best TPC-H one terabyte benchmark running on IBM's eServer xSeries 346 by 27 percent.

"This latest achievement puts a winning touch on the Oracle and HP combination," said Richard Sarwal, vice president, Server Performance, Oracle. "Oracle continuously demonstrates performance innovation and reliability. Customers can count on world-class database performance when they choose Oracle."

"HP is committed to delivering outstanding performance and value to our customers, as demonstrated by the world-record results we consistently achieve," said Don Jenkins, vice president of marketing, Business Critical Servers, HP. "HP Integrity servers are designed for managing the most demanding workloads, especially for mission-critical data warehousing needs in the financial services, manufacturing, healthcare, and public sector industries."

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.
