Compaq cluster makes Top 10 benchmark

Author: JT Smith

The Register: "A Compaq Proliant server cluster is capable of running up a billion transactions a day - apparently a
first in TPC-C (Transaction Processing Council) validated benchmark.

In real life, this is equivalent to the requirements of "more than triple the transactions handled daily,
worldwide, by a large consumer credit card payment processing system", Q helpfully points out."
