SAP ASE 16 Demonstrates Leading Performance on Two New Sets of SD Benchmarks

ASE 16 continues to dominate the SAP SD (Sales and Distribution) benchmarks for 4 processor systems proving to our customers that SAP ASE can handle the workloads that SAP Business Suite throws its way.  On May 5 and June1, 2015, two sets of leading SAP SD Benchmarks for SAP ASE 16 running on Red Hat Enterprise Linux and the Intel Xeon processors were published.  The results are compared by the number of Benchmark Users metric.

On May 5, going head-to-head with Microsoft SQL Server 2012 running on Windows Server 2012 Datacenter Edition and SAP ASE 16 running on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.0, the SAP ASE result of 31,000 Benchmark Users outpaced the Microsoft SQL Server 2012 result of 29,360 users on the same hardware, HP ProLiant DL580 Gen9, 4 processor machines with Intel Xeon E7-8890 v3, 2.5 Ghz chipsets. [1]

Additionally, the same 31,000 Benchmark Users metric was demonstrated with SAP ASE 16 and the same chips running on Red Hat Linux Enterprise 7.1 on a Dell PowerEdge R930, 4 processor machine with Intel Xeon E7-8890 v3, 2.5 Ghz chipsets.  [2, 3]

On June 1, SAP ASE demonstrated superiority again over Microsoft SQL Server 2012 with 27,315 Benchmarks Users for ASE versus 27,200 for SQL Server.  This was again on the same respective operating systems and chip sets, this time with identical HP ProLiant BL660c Gen9, 4 processor machines with Intel Xeon E5-4669 v3 2.1 Ghz chipsets.  [4]  The HP machine in this test is priced much lower than that used in the May 5 results, and, therefore, provides even higher price performance.

On the same chip set, SAP ASE 16 also produced an impressive 29,254 Benchmark Users metric running on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.0 on a Dell PowerEdge M830, 4 processor machine with Intel Xeon e5-4669 v3, 2.1 Ghz.  [6]
