Santa Clara, Calif. ― April 1, 2010 ― NEC Corporation of America, a leading provider and integrator of advanced communications, networking and IT solutions, today announced that the NEC Express5800/A1080a enterprise server with Intel® Xeon® processor 7500 series technology achieved the fastest performance on the recently released TPC-E benchmark1. In addition to holding the top position, NEC's Express5800/1000 series servers hold four of the top ten TPC-E performance benchmarks, the most of any vendor represented on this list.
This world record performance of 3,141.76 tpsE (transactions-per-second in TPC-E) at $768.92 USD/tpsE achieved by the NEC Express5800/A1080a2 outperforms, by more than 50 percent, the second-place performance record of 2,022.64 tpsE achieved by the IBM® System x3850 X53. The NEC Express5800/A1080a also has over two and a half times the tpsE performance with the approximately equal price per performance when compared to the only other TPC-E top ten performing eight-processor system4.
Building upon a decade long development experience of the NEC Express5800/1000 series, the fifth generation Express5800/A1080a server provides exceptional flexibility, capacity, performance and configurability exploiting the inherent functionality of the Intel® Xeon® processor 7500 series.
This industry-leading benchmark was achieved with Microsoft® Windows Server® 2008 R2 and SQL Server® 2008 R2 running on the server hardware, which served as the database server, and NEC's innovative Enterprise Modular Storage D3-10 functioning as the database storage system.
NEC's achievement of this world-record benchmark with its new NEC Express5800/A1080a enterprise server has solidified its industry-leading performance. Drawing from NEC's rich heritage in mainframe computing, the NEC Express5800/A1080a enterprise server also has the reliability, availability and serviceability (RAS) features required to meet the increasing demands of business-critical applications. NEC is committed to providing mission critical database system solutions with NEC Express5800 enterprise server products.
