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.
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
Hundreds of customers run their database applications on the DL785
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

By Ankit Gupta. Is a rack just a piece of metal in the corner of your data center or is it the first step to solid infrastructure?
Choosing a rack might seem like a "no-brainer," but you might want to take a closer look. Selecting the proper rack is an essential decision for building out an efficiently running data center. Here are some things to consider before your next rack purchase:
Air flow: cool air coming in the front door and hot air flowing out the back of the rack determines the cooling efficiency inside the data center.
Data center density: the ability to hold weight up to 3000lbs defines the density in the data center.
Your changing business needs: the ability to hold up to 2000lbs dynamic load enables convenient shipping of the rack with all of your servers, PDUs, KVMs, and TFT monitors installed - making for quick turn around time for critical business needs.
