SAP ASE 16.0 Scalability in a Virtualized Environment

You’ve heard that SAP ASE 16 offers significant new functionality to boost speed and scalability as we’ve shared benchmarks supporting this claim in previous blogs.  And in case you missed ISUG-TECH, the China Academy of Railways folks described their constantly growing ticketing system, processing 3+ billion transactions a day and praised the scale-up functionality in SAP ASE 16 – achieving linear scalability with the new release in their physical environment.  Today, I’m excited to share new test results that show SAP ASE 16 scalability in a virtualized environment.

SAP ASE 16 has been tested on VMware Vsphere 5.5, the leading server virtualization platform and the results prove once again that SAP ASE delivers excellent scalability.  In a VMware Vsphere environment using RHEL 6.x, SAP ASE achieved linear scalability with high performance throughput with absolutely zero tuning of the database – I know….I know…..I am not saying there is no need for SAP ASE DBAs anymore… is just that SAP ASE is getting more efficient and it has learned to do self-tuning.  SAP ASE scaled linearly from a 16 core environment to a 64 core environment with high performance throughput as the CPU count increased. 

The table and the graph below show the normalized values obtained during the testing efforts.  We think these results are just additional proof of the scalability and speed benefits you can gain with SAP ASE 16.  We hope you agree.

Well…..what are you waiting for…..try it out for yourself along with the many other cool features in ASE 16!!!!
