NEC Express5800/1320Xf Dual-Core Itanium Server Achieves Highest TPC-C Performance of Intel 16-Processor Architecture Server Platforms(2)

SANTA CLARA, Calif.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—February 20, 2008— NEC Corporation of America, a premier provider of IT, network and identity management solutions, announced today that on January 21, 2008, the NEC Express5800/1320Xf server with 84 NEC D3-10 storage arrays reported the highest TPC-C(1) performance benchmark result among 16-processor Intel(R) server platforms that use Oracle(R) Database and Red Hat(R) Enterprise Linux(R). BEA(R) Tuxedo(R) 8.1 transaction processing monitor (TPM) was used to deliver the workload.

In this specific TPC-C benchmark, the NEC Express5800/1320Xf achieved 1,245,516 tpmC (transactions per minute) and a price per performance of $4.57/tpmC, demonstrating the power of an NEC solution running 16 Dual-Core Intel(R) Itanium(R) 2 processors, Oracle(R) Database 10g Enterprise Edition on Red Hat(R) Enterprise Linux AS4 operating system.

"The latest TPC-C result proves that NEC's Dual-Core Itanium-based enterprise servers can meet increasing performance demands and application needs in large-scale database systems," said Mike Mitsch, general manager, Enterprise Server Division of NEC Corporation of America. "NEC is proud to offer exceptional performance and availability for online transaction processing through NEC's Express5800/1000 series servers and D-Series storage arrays."

Developed for over ten years and leveraging NEC's outstanding supercomputer and mainframe technology, NEC Express5800/1000 series servers meet mission critical business needs for the enterprise. The NEC Express5800/1320Xf is a third-generation NEC Express5800/1000 series Intel(R) Itanium(R) processors server product incorporating NEC's innovative A3 (A cubed) chipset. NEC's A3 chipset contributes to the server's outstanding reliability, availability, serviceability (RAS) and performance.
