3 ways to experience extreme database, data warehouse & virtualization performance at HP Discover

Guest blog by Tushar Agrawal, HP ProLiant Scale-up x86 Product Manager

 

All information is rapidly becoming digitized, driving a mega data explosion. As an IT leader, you constantly look for ways to mine this data to generate insights for accurate decision making or get more of this data processed faster, cheaper.  At HP Discover we’ll show you how the world-record breaking HP ProLiant Scale-up x86 (4-socket – DL580, DL560, BL660c Gen8) servers help you accomplish these objectives faster and more efficiently than other alternatives such as RISC/UNIX or massive scale-out clusters. We‘ll also demonstrate how HP Scale-up x86 servers uniquely maximize the value of new in-memory, in-server flash and GPGPU technologies for dramatic performance improvements. Come learn more about how extreme performance database and data warehouse reference architectures based on HP ProLiant Scale-up x86 Servers, HP 3PAR Storage and HP IO Accelerators create new possibilities for your data intensive workloads

Securing a better Oracle database solution with HP ProLiant Servers

Choosing the right solution for mission-critical databases is a key decision for IT management, one they will live with for years after the solution is installed. Before leaping into the Exadata single-vendor solution for their primary on-line transaction processing (OLTP) and enterprise data warehouse workloads, IT managers should carefully consider the trade-offs they might be forced to make.

New Levels of Performance from a 17 Year Partnership

Since 2004, HP and AMD have been partnering to deliver industry leading server solutions to the marketplace.  Whether you’re a small business struggling with rapid growth or an enterprise data center trying to reign in out-of-control costs, the HP and AMD teams have developed industry leading products to meet your critical business needs.

Learn how to take a huge leap in performance: new microsite featuring AMD based HP ProLiant servers

Microsites have increasingly become a helpful way to consolidate key information.  Grouping web content together helps visitors easily locate information relevant to their queries.  Effective microsites are purposely designed to quickly engage with a specific audience.  The HP ProLiant Team has partnered with AMD to develop a new microsite focusing on HP ProLiant servers with AMD technology.  

Another business intelligence leadership proof point for HP ProLiant DL785 G6 – this time with Sybase IQ and Red Hat Enterprise Linux

As I mentioned in one my previous blogs, as x86
processors are getting more powerful, 64 bit architecture is becoming
more mature, memory DIMMs are getting bigger & cost effective, more
and more scalable x86 software applications are becoming available,
scale-up x86 servers are becoming ideal choice for large business
intelligence and decision support system deployment at a cost that no
one imagined a few years ago.

The latest world record performance
result of HP ProLiant DL785 G6, 102,375.3 QphH at $3.63 USD/QphH, on TPC-H @ 1000 GB benchmark running Sybase IQ 15.1 database and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.3
operating system is an excellent proof point. This #1 non-clustered performance benchmark result demonstrates
that customers can deploy large business intelligence solutions at an
aggressive TCO on high-performance 8‑socket x86 servers running. In addition to holding
the #1 non-clustered x86 performance result, the DL785 G6 offers outstanding
price/performance maintaining #1 8P price /performance record in the TPC-H @
1000 GB benchmark category.



The
DL785 G6 with the six-core AMD Opteron™ processors has been designed as
an excellent database server. Its balanced architecture with ample I/O
and memory make it an ideal platform for decision support and business
intelligence  processes.

Hundreds of customers run their database applications on the DL785
server.


The TPC Benchmark™H (TPC-H)  is a decision support benchmark, with components that are intended to be relevant to customers who deploy decision support systems as part of their business intelligence solution. The benchmark is comprised of a suite of business oriented ad-hoc queries and concurrent data modifications that examine large volumes of data and execute highly complex queries. Many
businesses find this type of benchmark useful in determining what
servers to utilize because the TPC-H benchmark illustrates decision
support systems that examine large volumes of data, execute queries with
a high degree of complexity, and give answers to critical business
questions.
