DB2 sets industry performance record on an x86-64 server

DB2 9.5 just set a new industry record on the TPC-C benchmark of online transaction processing (OLTP) performance, running on an IBM server powered by standard x86-64 Intel Xeon processors. This is the first time that a database running on an Intel or AMD x86-64 system has ever broken the 1 million tpmC barrier. DB2 has exceeded that barrier by over 20%.

DB2 also broke new ground in the price/performance category, being the first database software to come in lower than $2 USD/tpmC.

The free DB2 Express-C database is built on the same codebase as this record-breaking edition of DB2.
