Marlborough, Massachusetts-based Sequoia Systems Inc now has the first benchmark on Oracle Corp’s new Parallel Server relational database 6.2 running on a fault-tolerant system – but it’s only the very limited TPC-A Benchmark, developed by the Transaction Processing Performance Council. The Sequoia Series 400 fault-tolerant Unix box achieved 110 transactions per second, claimed to be the highest of any industry-standard database on a fault-tolerant system, a cost per transaction of $26,895. Sequoia also says that it will implement Oracle’s financial, manufacturing and office applications to the 400 – also marketed by Hewlett-Packard Co as the HP 9000 Model 1240 and 1245.
