Oracle has achieved a record-breaking result on the two-tier SAP Sales and Distribution (SD) Standard Application Benchmark running on the mySA ERP 2005
application.

This new milestone showcases Oracle Database 10g’s superior performance, as it continues to outperform IBM DB2 and Microsoft SQL Server.
On a system configuration of an HP Integrity Superdome server with 64 Dual-Core Intel Itanium 2 1.6-GHz processors, Oracle Database 10g achieved 30 000 SAP SD Benchmark users.
This world record is the highest ever measured result on the two-tier SAP SD Standard Application Benchmark based on the number of SAP SD Benchmark users, surpassing the best performance of IBM DB2 and Microsoft SQL Server.
The two-tier SAP SD Standard Application Benchmark measures the system performance to process dialog steps and order line item postings per hour for SAP solution-based transactions.
A transaction consists of a full business process that captures activities from the full order processing cycle from order creation to delivery to invoicing.
