ASE Scores Top On Two-Processor and Four-Processor Linux

    By: Mr. Adrian Bridgwater on Feb 03, 2013

    SAP has announced two new No. 1 results on the SAP Sales and Distribution (SD) standard application benchmark for SAP Sybase Adaptive Server Enterprise (ASE).

    NOTE: It’s nice to see SAP using Adaptive Server Enterprise in full in many ways, it almost feels like it the firm is establishing more ownership and respect of the product and, in the face the mighty HANA, this is surely no bad thing.

    2:4 two-processor, four-processor

    SAP Sybase ASE recorded the top two-processor result running on the Cisco UCS B200 M3 server and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.3, together with enhancement package 5 for the SAP ERP 6.0 application1. It also achieved the top four-processor Linux result running on the Fujitsu PRIMERGY RX500 S7 server with SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 SP2 and enhancement package 5 for SAP ERP 6.02.

    The result certified on the Cisco server achieved 6,530 SAP SD benchmark users and 35,680 SAPS. The result certified on the Fujitsu PRIMERGY server achieved 12,400 SAP SD benchmark users and 67,780 SAPS. These results achieved on the two-tier SAP SD standard application benchmark running on two- and four-processor Linux servers demonstrate linear scale from 16 to 32 cores and provide further evidence that SAP Sybase ASE, together with leading hardware vendors, is enabling customers to achieve unmatched performance gains for both 16- and 32-core systems.

    The price-performance proposition

    "These latest SAP SD benchmark results provide further evidence that SAP Sybase ASE delivers scalable, high performance to SAP Business Suite customers of all sizes," said Peter Thawley, vice president and general manager, Global Database Solutions, SAP. "With SAP Sybase ASE running on Red Hat Enterprise Linux and SUSE Linux Enterprise Server, customers can achieve exceptional price-performance for SAP Business Suite applications on standards-based platforms."

    Results of the benchmark run on the Cisco UCS B200 M3 server are valid as of January 8, 2013, and results on the Fujitsu PRIMERGY RX500 S7 server are valid as of January 11, 2013. Details can be found at
