STAC Report: eXtremeDB on IBM Power8 with HGST NVMe SSDs, under STAC-M3

System sets 6 new response-time records (11 compared to other 2-socket systems)

29 October 2015 - New York

Today STAC released a STAC Report covering audited baseline STAC-M3 Benchmarks of McObject's eXtremeDB Financial Edition 7.0 on a 2-socket IBM System S824L server with HGST Ultrastar SN150 NVMe PCIe SSDs.

This solution stack set new records in 6 of 17 mean response-time benchmarks, including 1.88x the performance of the previously published best result for 10T.STATS-AGG (SUT ID: KDB150612) and 1.77x that of 100T.VWAB-12D (SUT ID: KDB130603). The system also had more consistent response times (lower standard deviation) than the previous best results for 5 of the 17 operations.

Compared to other publicly reported 2-socket systems, this system set records in 11 of the 17 benchmarks. 5 of the remaining records are still held by the previous eXtremeDB/Power8 system (SUT ID: XTR141023).

The report is available here. At this link, qualified members of the STAC Benchmark Council can also access the configuration details for the stack that was tested.
