Providing optimized infrastructure for both on-premises and cloud environments

Fujitsu Limited and Oracle announced the launch of Fujitsu SPARC M12, a new lineup of enterprise servers now available worldwide.

Featuring Fujitsu's new SPARC64 XII processor, Fujitsu SPARC M12 servers achieve the world's highest per CPU core performance in arithmetic processing, offering dramatic improvements for a wide range of database workloads, from mission-critical systems on premises to big data processing in the cloud.

The new Fujitsu SPARC M12 servers join the vibrant SPARC technology ecosystem, and together with Oracle's SPARC systems they leverage the unique security and scalability features of the Oracle Solaris operating system, as well as the efficiency and versatility of the Oracle VM Server for SPARC virtualization software.
