Oracle has claimed a new world record in a single-node server benchmark at the Oracle OpenWorld 2010 user conference in San Francisco.
Oracle Weblogic Server 11g with Oracle Database 11g Release 2 achieved 20,092.36 operations per second, using the SPECjAppServer2004 industry standard.
The record was achieved running Oracle Linux on a HP Proliant DL980 G7 server.
"Oracle Weblogic Server continues to demonstrate why it is the best foundation for enterprise Java applications," said Juan Loaiza, senior vice-president, systems technology at Oracle.
The new record adds to Oracle Weblogic Server's current SPECjAppServer2004 benchmark records. These include world record results in multi-node and dual-node categories, the highest performance achieved running a clustered database, and the highest performance per core of any result published, Oracle said.
