Microsoft gets Database Performance crown back!

On May 20, HP regained the TPC-C performance crown for non-clustered (you know, "Big Iron") , using Microsoft Windows server 2003 Datacenter Edition and SqlServer 2000 Enterprise Edition 64-bit. It almost also nailed the clustered (you know, "Little Iron") record, also HP/Windows/SqlServer, result which was submitted September 2001. A stunning 707,102 transactions per minute were clocked on this beast with 64 Itanium 2 processors.

And who was that little fellow who said Microsoft's products do not scale well? :)

  • I used to work for a software vendor as an evangelist and we were primarily a microsoft shop. I can't tell you how many times I had to deal with anti-microsoft/pro-oracle battles. after a while i got pretty good at quoting statistics that dispelled a great deal of it. i think most of it has to do with good marketing on oracle's part.

    slowly the myth is getting displaced.
