HP ProLiant servers: Java rock star performances in both metrics on SPECjbb2013-MultiJVM benchmark


Another set of Java performance records and industry-first achievements have been delivered by the HP 1P, 2P, 4P, and 8P ProLiant Servers on the new SPECjbb2013 benchmark.  In the 4-processor and in the 8-processor category, HP is the first vendor in the industry publishing results, and is currently the only vendor with an 8-processor result published by SPEC. These results follow previous record-setting results published just two weeks earlier with HP ProLiant Servers.


The new SPECjbb2013 benchmark replaces SPECjbb2005 and is the first time a SPEC Java benchmark contains metrics that encourage competition for both response time and full-capacity throughput. This is especially important for customers interested in throughput-oriented performances (max-jOPS) as well as throughput under response time constraint (critical-jOPS).


Performance results on the SPECjbb2013-MultiJVM benchmark include:


  • #1 1P Java performance -  HP ProLiant ML310e Gen8 Server

1st 1P server to break 12,000 max-jOPS and 3,000 critical-jOPS


HP ProLiant ML310e Gen8, a single socket 4U tower server, delivers essential availability and expansion needed to accommodate changing business needs.


  • #1 2P performance - HP ProLiant ML350p Gen8 Server

1st server to break 40,000 max-jOPS and 10,000  critical-jOPS


The HP ProLiant  ML350p Gen8 offers increased performance and capacities with processors, memory, and storage; it is ideal for remote branch offices of large enterprises, growing businesses, and data centers.


  • #1 4P performance - HP ProLiant DL560 Gen8 Server

1st server to break 60,000 max-jOPS and 15,000 critical-jOPS and 1st 4P results accepted and published by SPEC.


The HP ProLiant DL560 Gen8 redefines density-optimized four-socket rack server technology without compromising on performance, scalability, and expandability. The DL560 Gen8 scale-up server is ideal for virtualization, server consolidation, database, business processing, and general 4P data-intensive applications where optimization of data center space and price/performance is paramount.


  • #1 overall performance leadership and first 8P - HP ProLiant DL980 G7 Server

1st server to break 100,000 max-jOPS and 20,000 critical-jOPS


HP ProLiant DL980 G7 with HP PREMA Architecture is an eight-socket server built to handle the largest x86 enterprise environments with confidence. The DL980 G7 blends industry standard economies with advanced mission critical capabilities to deliver balanced scaling, self healing resiliency, and breakthrough efficiencies needed in essential enterprise compute environments.



These stellar SPECjbb2013-MultiJVM results demonstrate that HP ProLiant servers are designed to handle this latest industry-standard workload with world record performance.


Only with HP:


Latest technology with HP ProLiant optimized memory. The HP ProLiant Gen8 servers were configured with HP SmartMemory, and HP innovation. HP SmartMemory is qualified to run at speeds up to 25 percent faster than industry standards (1).


Converged Infrastructure: HP is the only vendor offering Converged Infrastructure, architected for any workload from client to cloud  and delivering a single common, modular architecture across the data center.
