The results are in— Microsoft SQL Server 2005 delivers the #1 price/performance for 3TB TPC-H non-clustered benchmark. The recent TPC-H benchmark study with HP demonstrates Microsoft SQL Server’s ability to deliver enterprise scalability and performance enabling our customers to run large scale, mission critical applications with the best price/performance.

This result is twice the size of previous SQL Server benchmarks achieved for the launch of SQL Server 2005 demonstrating Microsoft’s increasing price/performance leadership that SQL Server continues to push the performance envelope.  Furthermore, SQL Server 2005 outperformed the previous best result on Windows with performance of 60,359 QphH@3TB (queries per hour) compared to the previous record of 37,813 with a much better price/performance of $32.60 compared to $38.00.*
