New HP ProLiant DL980 G7 delivers world record performance

Two new world-record performance benchmark results demonstrate why the HP ProLiant DL980 G7 is a great solution for most demanding data intensive workloads like SAP Sales and Distribution and business intelligence.

Industry’s most comprehensive portfolio of scale-up ProLiant servers

Today HP introduced the industry’s most comprehensive portfolio of scale-up ProLiant servers optimized for the most demanding, data intensive x86 workloads to address these concerns and enable them to deploy their most demanding load with confidence at an ROI that was never seen before.

More performance, lower TCO and unmatched scalability with HP ProLiant G6 servers and Oracle 11g

Businesses are under tremendous pressure to improve efficiency
of their existing infrastructures, meet future growth and reduce overhead. They
must cut power and operational costs while reducing server and database sprawl.
Add in the need to increase compute power, memory and I/O capacity to meet operational
demands and the pressure becomes game changing.

In order to get datacenter management, operational and,

server is becoming an attractive option for customers. For example, HP ProLiant DL785 G6 servers can
scale up to support very large workloads as well as consolidation of multiple database
instances onto a single server still leaving headroom for future growth.

Customers looking to migrate their oracle database applications
from large legacy servers with very high operational cost, find Oracle database
deployments on HP ProLiant multi-processor servers running Linux or Solaris
very attractive. These multi-processor ProLiant servers provide a great
scale-up deployment platform for both Business
Intelligence and Online Transaction processing applications
deployed on the

Businesses strive to fully automate manufacturing, inventory,
supply chain management, and customer billing running simple to complex
business applications on the top of a database, such as Oracle 11g. The
SPECjAppServer 2004 benchmark
emulates information flow among an
automotive dealership, manufacturing, supply chain management, and an
order/inventory system and can be a very good indicator of server performance for
these workloads.

Middleware and Oracle database 11g delivers World
