New Oracle SPECjAppserver2010 and TPC-C benchmarks – is Oracle fleecing you?


This week, Oracle claimed x86 “world-record” performance with the Sun Fire X4800 M2 on industry standard Java middleware and transactional database benchmarks. Oracle compares their brand new result with an IBM result from over a year ago.

Elisabeth Stahl writes her thoughts on the new Oracle benchmark results in her blog: http://benchmarkingblog.wordpress.com/2012/03/30/is-oracle-fleecing-you.

Oracle conveniently forgets to include cost of the database in their configuration. If you do include the Oracle database cost, then you get back to similar numbers I have discussed in my earlier benchmark posts: SPECjEnterprise2010 benchmark questions answered and Which is faster – WebSphere or WebLogic?
