RED HAT announce that
>
> a new world-record 4-processor result on Linux on the two-tier SAP
> Sales and Distribution (SD) standard application benchmark. The results
> achieved were on the IBM System x3850 X5 running IBM DB2 9.7, Red Hat
> Enterprise Linux 6, and SAP enhancement package 4 for the SAP ERP
> application Release 6.0. With more capabilities available in smaller
> systems and the option of integrated virtualization, enterprises can
> more flexibly and cost-effectively deploy leading enterprise
> applications on Red Hat Enterprise Linux with the confidence of
> industry-leading performance
>
> The new result beats the previous-best 4-processor result of 12,204 SAP
> SD benchmark users on Linux achieved by the HP ProLiant DL580 G7 running
> SUSE Linux Enterprise Server.

Why this announcement is wrong/bad/unfair

1 - Dis-similar Hard Ware.. IBM System x3850 X5 is a better HW then HP
ProLiant DL580 G7
https://www.ibm.com/developerworks/m.../x3850?lang=en

2 - Redhat used IBM DB2, which is better then MaxDB

3 - Redhat is comparing RHEL 6(2012) which must be running newer kernel
version then SLES 11 SP1(in 2011)
