VectorWise Running on a Dell PowerEdge R910 Server Demonstrates Leadership Performance and Price/Performance for Analytics and Interactive Reporting.
After smashing the TPC-H 100GB records on a single node back in March, VectorWise has done it again. The new benchmarks set an even higher standard for performance and price/performance, making faster results more affordable than ever before. By combining Yellowfin and VectorWise you can build the most easy to use reporting and analytics solutions that deliver the fastest performance on today’s hardware.
300GB Benchmark Record
The Dell and VectorWise 300GB benchmark delivered 330% of the previous best single-node performance leader, the HP ProLiant DL580 G7 – an astonishing increase of 230% – with 400,931.8 QphH@300GB, versus HP’s previous high of 121,345.6 QphH@300GB.
Price for performance came in at $0.35/QphH@300GB, compared to HP’s previous best of $0.65/QphH@300GB, thereby reducing the cost of performance by 46%. Both results disclosed the TPC-Energy power/performance metric, which showed the Dell PowerEdge R910 only drawing 2.38 Watts/KQphH@300GB versus HP’s ProLiant DL580 G7, which drew 10.33 Watts/KQphH@300GB.
Bottom-line: The Dell/VectorWise solution is much more energy-efficient!
The Dell PowerEdge R910 running the 1TB benchmark delivered an astonishing 251% of the previous best single-node performance leader – the IBM x3850 X5 8P – representing a 151% increase, with performance of 436,788.9 QphH@1TB versus the previous high of 173,961.8 QphH@1TB. The price for performance came in at $0.88/QphH@1TB, 36% better than the previous best price for performance at $1.37/QphH@1TB. While both platforms used the latest Intel Xeon E7 processor technology, the R910 only used 4 processors and onboard SAS drives, while IBM used an 8-way and 7 solid-state drive (SSD) adapters!
“The Dell PowerEdge R910 server with the latest Intel Xeon E7 processors is designed to tackle the toughest workloads and greatly enhance database performance making it an ideal platform for UNIX/RISC migration,” said Sally Stevens, vice president, Enterprise Platform Marketing at Dell. “These new benchmark results demonstrate how customers in the financial services sector can easily deploy on-demand analytical solutions in a simplified manner and with record-breaking performance.”
The TPC Benchmark™H (TPC-H) is a performance test of the independent Transaction Processing Performance Council (TPC) for data warehouse solutions that is recognized worldwide. The benchmark simulates data warehouse analysis requiring considerable processing power, and measures both the speed and capacity of database solutions. TPC-H categories are delineated by database size, and based on the latest round of independently audited results.
