Hewlett Packard announced that its ProLiant ML350 G3 has chalked a
win in the benchmarking sweepstakes, nailing down top ratings in the
popular Transaction Processing
Performance Counsel
(TPC-C) benchmarks.

Hewlett Packard has announced that its ProLiant ML350 has taken top scores in the TPC-C benchmarks, both in overall performance and in price-performance ratios.

The TPC-C is a set of performance tests distinguished by its
utilization of production applications to measure the performance of a
given platform, as opposed to standalone “benchmark software.”
Specifically, the organization says the TPC-C simulates an environment
where terminal operators execute transactions against a database
running in an order entry environment, where orders, payments,
deliveries, and inventory are monitored.

The base result of a TPC-C benchmark is the “tpmC” number, which
reflects “New Order” transactions per minute on a system running at a
normal load. A tpmC number of 710, for instance, reflects a system
processing 710 “new order transaction” per minute in addition to its
other computational/transactional responsibilities.

According to HP, a ProLiant ML350 G3 running Windows Server 2003
and Microsoft SQL Server 2000, configured with a 2.8 GHz Intel Xeon
processor won the top position in performance, delivering TPC
benchmark results of 39,006.54 tpmC for double processor servers, and
a ML350 G3 running with one 2.8 GHz Xeon recorded a result of
19,526.27 tpmC for single processor servers.

The TPC-C benchmark is also used to calculate the price to
performance ratio of a tested platform. HP says The ML350 was measured
with a top score of $2.47/tpmC for one processor servers and
$4.72/tpmC for two processor servers.
