Fujitsu Featuring Intel® Xeon® Processor E5 on SAP: Benchmark
Today, energy efficiency is one of the decisive factors when selecting a server for SAP® applications. SAP has thus defined - in close cooperation with its partners - a benchmark that examines the energy-efficiency factor. Back in 2011, Fujitsu was the first company to achieve results on the SAP server power standard application benchmark with the PRIMERGY RX300 S6i. In comparison with this previous benchmark, Fujitsu is now able to demonstrate – through new results achieved on the same benchmark – that the power consumption per SAPS decreased by as much as 43% with the new Fujitsu PRIMERGY RX300 S7 server generation featuring the Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 product family.
In this paper, we discuss the following results achieved by Fujitsu on the SAP server power standard application benchmark that were certified on March 6, 2012.
The key performance indicator of this benchmark is the value "watts per kilo SAPS" (watts/kSAPS). A smaller value therefore means less power consumption for a defined load and thus indicates greater energy efficiency. This benchmark saw consumption of an average of 10.5 watts in order to obtain a throughput of 1,000 SAPS.
