New benchmarks published by hardware and software partners further help validate SQL Server as the data platform on which you can bet your business.
Online digital entertainment company bwin.party provides online gaming and more to almost 2 million people. Because the organization needed a better ability to support rapid business growth and improve website performance, it deployed an in-memory online transaction processing (OLTP) solution in Microsoft SQL Server 2014. The company can now handle 250,000 requests per second and can offer players a faster, smoother gaming experience. bwin.party also expects to save as much as US$100,000 and is increasing revenue.
This LSI benchmark shows dramatic performance gains using the new SQL Server 2014 in-memory OLTP feature. In addition, the Microsoft SQL Server performance team was tasked with creating an internal test environment that was flexible, stable, and eliminated storage as the performance bottleneck. They did so using SQL Server 2014 and LSI Nytro WarpDrive cards.
Fusion-io has conducted several benchmarks using SQL Server 2014 In-Memory OLTP showing dramatic performance gains.
At over 37,000 transactions per hour, this Accenture and HP benchmark modeled a mix of complex policy administration activities that a large insurance carrier would expect on a peak day of business processing. Based on data collected from three different Tier 1 insurance carriers, it demonstrates that Microsoft SQL Server 2012 offers a material increase in throughput.
OpenText, a global ECM leader, helps organizations manage and gain the true value of their business content. During the benchmark study, the OpenText Email Monitoring solution running on SQL Server 2012 processed 14.8 million messages in 24 hours. This far exceeds any known published benchmark results for email monitoring solutions and is approximately 15 times higher than the typical message ingestion volume for large organizations that process 1-1.5 million messages per day.
Turnkey Converged Billing, built on SQL Server 2012, has been benchmarked to support 250 million subscribers. The 250 million-subscriber test exceeded the performance objectives for both invoicing and mediation, generating 26 million invoices within a six hour billing cycle, and mediating 4.9 billion call detail records within 12 hours, showing a near-linear scalability as the number of subscribers increased.
Performance benchmarks conducted by Siemens PLM validate the performance and scalability of Microsoft SQL Server 2012 as an enterprise-class database management system for Teamcenter. The tests confirm that when running on SQL Server 2012, Teamcenter can easily scale to 10,000 concurrent users while maintaining excellent performance.
Microsoft SQL Server 2012 along with HP and XIO broke the Temenos T24 performance record. At peak performance, the system processed 11,500 transactions per second in online business testing and averaged more than 10,000 interest accrual and capitalizations per second during close-of-business testing, processing 25 million capitalizations and account accruals in less than 42 minutes.
