With the recent AMD Opteron 6200 processor refresh, the HP ProLiant DL385 G7 server delivers a new “first” that further solidifies its leadership in the two-processor 2U AMD rack space.
Taking the #1 spot in the two-processor TPC-C performance benchmark*, a test that simulates an Online Transaction Processing (OLTP) database environment by measuring the performance of a system when it’s tasked with processing numerous short business transactions concurrently, an HP ProLiant DL385 G7 populated with AMD’s Opteron 6282SE processors, achieved 1,207,982 tpmC (denoting the average number of new-order transactions that the system processed per minute over a minimum of a two hour period) at USD $0.89/tpmC - passing IBM’s best POWER7-based two-processor server and far exceeding the results achieved with prior Opteron 6100 series processors.
Similar database performance improvements were seen on the HP ProLiant DL385 G7 from the two-tier SAP Sales and Distribution standard application benchmark** that mimics a sell-from-stock scenario from the creation of a customer order to the corresponding delivery with subsequent goods movement and invoicing. The AMD Opteron 6200 test results yielded a 32% improvement over prior Opteron 6100 results and even beat similar results from Intel’s Xeon 5600 processor series.
Whatever your database need, these results should assure you that the HP ProLiant DL385 G7, coupled with AMD’s Opteron 6200 processors, can deliver the power you need for today’s extreme workloads as well as the headroom for growth you’ll require tomorrow.
