Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 – Setting World Records At Launch
June 10, 2014
The Red Hat Enterprise Linux Team
Today’s announcement of general availability of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 marks a significant milestone for Red Hat. The culmination of a multi-year effort by Red Hat’s engineering team and our partners, the latest major release of our flagship platform redefines the enterprise operating system, and is designed to power the spectrum of enterprise IT: applications running on physical servers, containerized applications, and also cloud services.
Since its introduction more than a decade ago, Red Hat Enterprise Linux has become the world’s leading enterprise Linux platform, setting industry standards for performance along the way, with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 continuing this trend. On its first day of general availability, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 already claims multiple world record-breaking benchmark results running on HP ProLiant servers, including:
SPECjbb2013 Multi-JVM Benchmark
- One processor world record for both max-jOPS (16,252) and critical-jOPS (4,721) metrics
- Two processor world record for both max-jOPS (119,517) and critical-jOPS (36,411) metrics
- Four processor world record for both max-jOPS (202,763) and critical-jOPS (65,950) metrics
The SPECjbb2013 benchmark is an industry-standard measurement of Java-based application performance developed by the Standard Performance Evaluation Corporation (SPEC). Application performance remains an important attribute for many customers, and this set of results demonstrates Red Hat Enterprise Linux’s continued ability to deliver world-class performance, alongside support from our ecosystem of partners and OEMs. With these impressive results to its name already, we like to think that this is only the tip of the iceberg for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7’s achievements, especially since the platform is designed to power a broad spectrum of enterprise IT workloads.
