TPC Arms Race Continues

Oracle has just become the first company to break a million tpmC on a single box. The price per tpmC is still high, but more disturbing is the cluster result on linux, where Oracle also breaks a million, but gets nearlyfifty percentmore tpmC than SQL Server and at nearly a third the price per tpmC. To our credit, the Oracle result comes two and a half years after the SQL Server result, but it’s proof that Oracle is still in the game with Oracle 10g, and we need to hurry up and ship something new.
