SGI/VoltDB Benchmark- More Details

written by Tim Callaghan on October 13, 2010 with no comments

Yesterday’s press release documented a 30 node SGI Rackable Cluster running VoltDB achieving 3.4 million transactions per second (at 10ms latency) running the “Voter” application.

Impressive numbers, indeed. And the numbers are even more interesting when you understand the transactions. Each Voter transaction consists of: 2 selects 1 insert (table with an index) 2 updates (materialized views, each with an index) Therefore, the SGI Cluster was performing 17 million SQL statements per second!
