Linux on Power - Doubling your performance Using open source to improve the price / performance dynamics of managing data Robin Porter Business Development Manager James Freeman Enterprise Architect Inspired open source solutions 19th November 2013
Established 2007 One of the fastest growing Red Hat partners in UK Open source software development house 2011 launched solutions and services Specialists in Virtualisation and Database I/S Technical solutions focus
Data Explosion and the need for open source 90% of the worlds data was created in the last two years Majority is unstructured Oracle dominate RDBMS PostgreSQL is the fastest growing open source database
Open Source is the future All organisations are looking to cut costs - Database infrastructure is #1 Open source technologies deliver substantial cost savings EnterpriseDB have made PostgreSQL Enterprise ready and delivered Oracle compatibility 80% savings on licensing - is x86 the best hardware platform ? Proof of concept - performance benchmarking
Linux Performance on Power Power7+ CPU Platform has huge potential - CISC vs. RISC Especially for large multi-threaded workloads But - development effort is still focussed on x86 Dont expect best performance out of the box Tune. Tune. Tune.
Case Study - PostgreSQL PostgreSQL Big performance improvements over 9.1 and earlier Especially multi-user workloads Two types of benchmark pgbench SELECT - simple reporting query benchmark HammerDB - based on industry standard TPC-C benchmark simulating OLTP workloads Reference system IBM X3650 M4 - 2 x Xeon E core, 512GB RAM Equivalently priced x86 tin
pgbench - Step 1 - Out of the box Compiled from source Default toolchain Factory configuration on hardware Power7 = 31% more TPS than x86 ! 31 %
But.. we can do better All tuning work undertaken in house at Quru No source code changes Under the guidance of IBM Raleigh / Montpellier We managed to beat their results !
HammerDB - TPC-C Benchmarks Tuning gives PowerLinux competitive advantage Power7 = 58% more NOPM than x86 ! 58 %
Quru tuning unlocks the performance of PowerLinux SPEC CPU2006 Publicly available at Base figures are untuned - strict guidelines Peak figures are tuned - freedom for tuning allowed
Conclusions Quru achieved a significant uplift in performance Every environment is unique so tuning is essential Our integrated solution is the future of Oracle cost containment in the enterprise To find out more check out Two whitepapers to follow and an event 10th December at IBM Southbank
PostgreSQL - The worlds most advanced open source database Evolved from Ingres project 1982 University of California First Open Source version 1996
EnterpriseDB Providing enterprises with the cost-performance benefits of Postgres by offering the products, resources, support and dependability required for high-level commercial applications 140+ employees 2,500+ customers across all market segments Global presence with offices in North America, Europe, Asia Fast growing: 60%+ YOY sales growth in 2012, 80%+ YOY ,000+ downloads/week of PostgreSQL and related products Strong financial banking
EnterpriseDB - Oracle Compatibility Run applications written for Oracle virtually unchanged No need to re-train Oracle DBAs and developers Support for SQL,PL/SQL,OCI and Pro*C Replication for easy sharing of data Dramatic cost savings No vendor lock-in
EnterpriseDB - Oracle cost containment
EnterpriseDB - Magic Quadrant Gartner Comments: Community leadership EnterpriseDB is the primary contributor to the PostgreSQL community and is responsible for many new features of PostgreSQL, including JSON Functionality The functionality of EnterpriseDB's Postgres Plus has increased greatly, and with the Oracle Compatibility Feature is now more than sufficient to run both mission-critical and non-mission- critical applications. Stability and compatibility References specifically call out compatibility with Oracle, the stability of the DBMS and product support as strengths.
