Red Hat and IBM Achieve Leading Performance Benchmark ResultsMarch 1, 2013 No Comments
Last week, Red Hat announced the availability of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.4, which provided updates to the leading open source operating platform to enable optimal performance and scalability across physical and virtual environments. In addition to several performance enhancements and the inclusion of new performance tools such as tuna and numad that are used to adjust internal operating system settings, the latest minor release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux has also achieved performance records on industry-standard benchmarks and scalability tests.
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.4 with its Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM) hypervisor on an IBM x3650-M4 server running DB2 posted the first and only official TPC-C benchmark result conducted to date entirely in an x86 virtualized environment(1). This industry-leading achievement showcases to customers the potential of running their entire IT infrastructure virtualized and the strength of KVM technology. Previously reserved for bare-metal deployments only, databases have represented one of the last strongholds within a datacenter to be virtualized.Featured Blogs
