Oracle(R) Database 10g sets new world record TPC-C benchmark result for a 4 CPU system running Red Hat Linux

Benchmark Adds to Oracle's Long List of Industry-Leading TPC-C World Records on Linux

REDWOOD SHORES, Calif., Jan. 12, 2005 -- Oracle (Nasdaq: ORCL) today announced a new world record 4-processor TPC-C benchmark on Linux. Oracle, the first and only database provider to demonstrate TPC-C performance leadership on Linux, now holds more TPC-C world records on Linux with Oracle(R) Database 10g than any other database vendor.

The benchmark result highlights Oracle's commitment to delivering exceptional performance and reducing the total cost of ownership for all business needs. Oracle Database 10g Standard Edition (four-processor maximum) running on an HP Integrity rx4640 server with four Intel(R) Itanium(R) 2 1.6 GHz processors and the Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS 3 operating system, achieved world record performance of any four processor system on Linux of 161,217 tpmC (transactions per minute) with a price-performance ratio of $3.94/tpmC.

"Oracle is always working to increase performance and reduce cost for our customers, regardless of their size and scope," said Richard Sarwal, vice president of Server Performance, Oracle Corporation. "This latest benchmark reaffirms our leadership in database performance on Linux."

Oracle running on Itanium processors has an extensive track record of delivering world record performance and scalability, and this benchmark adds to Oracle Database 10g's performance world records. Oracle was the first to exceed one million transactions per minute with world record performance on Linux of 1.18 million transactions per minute on a sixteen-node HP Integrity server cluster running Oracle Database 10g and Oracle Real Application Clusters, in addition to achieving the fastest ever TPC-C non-clustered result on Linux with a performance leading result of 683,575 tpmC on an NEC Express5800 server. Oracle Database 10g Standard Edition One (two-processor maximum) is recognized by the TPC as the 2-processor performance and price-performance leader on Linux with 51,506 tpmC at $1.81/tpmC, achieved on an HP Integrity rx2600 server. With Oracle Database 10g, the company continues to provide customers with industry-leading capabilities that support their demanding data warehousing and transaction processing requirements.

About TPC-C

TPC-C is an OLTP (online transaction processing) benchmark developed by the Transaction Processing Performance Council (TPC). The TPC-C benchmark defines a rigorous standard for calculating performance and price/performance measured by transaction per minute (tpmC) and $/tpmC, respectively.
