SUSE sets speed test record

SUSE sets speed test record

July 11, 2014

An optimized SUSE Linux Enterprise Server coupled with the new HP ConvergedSystem 900 for SAP HANA has broken the SPECjbb2013 test mark, operating more than twice as fast as the comparable SPARC solution. SUSE worked with HP to change to improve the performance of the Linux kernel that has set this record for performance on HP hardware.

“Building the ‘fastest ever’ platform is not just a technical achievement – it means real-world benefits that can be used by companies of all sizes running high-performance, mission-critical solutions,” commented Michael Miller, SUSE , vice president of global alliances and marketing. “Working with partners and adapting Linux to unleash the full potential of increasingly sophisticated hardware and software is what SUSE does best. In this case, our close collaboration with HP and SAP delivers spectacular results that will help our customers succeed and also greatly benefit the Linux developer community in the future. “

Paul Miller, vice president of marketing, HP Convergent Systems, said, “Record-breaking performance never happens by chance. The HP ConvergedSystem 900 for SAP HANA is the best platform for real-time computing with in-memory storage, and our work with SUSE helps customers get the most out of the architecture. “

HP and SUSE achieved these results by working together to apply finely tuned HP patches to the Linux kernel, making changes to the locking and semaphore paradigms in the kernel (mutex locks, non-blocking reference count) which allow scaling to large numbers. of processors. The process scheduler was also modified to help maximize device efficiency. These modifications will be available to all users in future releases of SUSE Linux Enterprise.
