Performance Unlocked: ThinkSystem Achieves 42 #1 Performance Benchmarks
In further to shortening complexity and streamlining operations, today’s business are increasingly looking for some-more from their investments and need certainty in their record partner to broach a form of opening and accessibility compulsory to run perfectionist and elaborating workloads like Microsoft SQL Server. Building on a longstanding approval as a #1 x86 server businessman for reliability and patron satisfaction1, Lenovo’s new ThinkSystem servers have achieved 42 #1 opening universe records.  

The TPC-E benchmark uses a database to indication a brokerage organisation with business who beget online transaction estimate (OLTP) exchange associated to trades, comment inquiries, and marketplace research. Lenovo is a initial to mangle a $100 USD/transaction per second per E benchmark (tpsE) cost separator on TPC-E, with $93.48 USD/tpsE2, 16% reduce than a before low of $111.65 USD/tpsE3. In further to Lenovo achieving a lowest $USD/tpsE, Lenovo also achieved a top TPC-E opening for any 2-socket complement with 6,598.36 tpsE2. This benchmark shows how business can reduce their altogether costs, while still achieving a opening compulsory to routine their patron transactions. In further to a TPC-E WR’s on a SR650, Lenovo also achieved a TPC-H universe record on a SR950.  The TPC Benchmark™H (TPC-H) is a preference support benchmark. This benchmark illustrates preference support systems that inspect vast volumes of data, govern queries with a high grade of complexity, and give answers to vicious business questions. Lenovo has published a best opening outcome ever on a non-clustered TPC-H™ benchmark @10,000GB scale. The ThinkSystem SR950 server achieved a following score: 1,336,109.6 QphH™ @10,000GB (queries per hour H) during $0.92 USD / QphH @10,000GB8.

Lenovo has also demonstrated success to assist financial marketplace customers, delivering 26 STAC-M3 universe record benchmarks on a ThinkSystem SR950 and ThinkSystem SR650.  The STAC-M3 benchmarks magnitude severe workloads in time-series analytics.  The ThinkSystem SR950 set universe annals in 9 of a 15 required, and dual of a discretionary STAC-M3 ‘big-memory’ Shasta benchmarks. One of these formula was over 2x aloft than before scores in a STAC-M3 Shasta benchmark4.

The ThinkSystem SR650 also set universe annals in 15 of 17 meant response-time benchmarks when using a STAC-M3 Antuco benchmark suite, compared to before publicly reported formula for single-node 2 hollow servers using a Kx Systems kdb+ database7. The STAC-M3 benchmark reports for a SR950 and SR650 are publicly available. The Lenovo ThinkSystem SR650 has set a new singular node 2-socket opening universe record with a SPECmpiM_base2007 metric from a MPI M2007 apartment of a SPEC MPI 2007 Benchmark9.

In addition, Lenovo set universe record universe annals in SPECvirt_sc20135 in 2 hollow server, and SPECjbb20156 benchmarks on 1, 2, 4, and 8 hollow servers. These new universe record benchmark formula denote Lenovo’s joining in delivering a opening a business pattern from their server investments, in further to providing business stretchable systems that are rarely reliable.
