CUSTOMERS MANAGE TRANSACTIONS AND DATA WITH ASE 12.5.

Sybase, Inc., Emeryville, Calif., has announced an industry-leading price/performance benchmark for Unix-based systems with its Adaptive Server Enterprise (ASE) 12.5. database manager.

This benchmark represents the best price/performance ratio for Unix-based systems tested by the Transaction Process Performance Council.

ASE 12.5 achieved 140,239.97 transactions per minute (tpmC) with a price/performance ratio of $16.31/tpmC utilizing the recently announced HP Server rp8400.

"These benchmark results demonstrate Sybase's technology leadership in the database market and our dedication to delivering solutions at a lower cost," said Dr. Raj Nathan, senior vice president and general manager, Sybase Enterprise Solutions Division. "Sybase is continuing to deploy technologically advanced database management systems that support our commitment to providing a cost-effective platform to handle intense, Web-based transaction processing."

"HP is focused on bringing the scalability, flexibility and lasting value of the HP Server rp8400 to its customers," said Mark Hudson, worldwide marketing manager, HP Business Systems and Technology Organization. "This benchmark shows that customers utilizing the HP Server rp8400 with Sybase ASE 12.5 will have the powerful and reliable solution they need to manage their data."

As an online transaction processing (OLTP) system benchmark, TPC-C simulates a complete environment where a population of terminal operators execute transactions against a database. The benchmark is centered on the principal activities of an order-entry environment including entering and delivering orders, recording payments, checking the status of orders and monitoring the level of stock at warehouses.

Sybase's flagship product, ASE 12.5, supports the heavy data processing needs of traditional OLTP and the complex data manipulation needs of decision support systems, while providing the flexibility, scalability, performance and security needed to support new, e-Business applications. ASE 12.5's commitment to openness and performance gives customers a robust choice for managing their transaction-intensive applications and mission-critical data.

"When customers are selecting a database, they tend to look for products that offer high throughput with a low pricing structure," said Mark Shainman, senior research analyst at META Group. "Companies delivering solutions that balance price and performance immediately help organizations eliminate upfront concerns and are going to be an obvious choice for that customer."
