More Cost Effective than Both IBM and HP Solutions September 29, 2012,
Volume 175, Issue 4
The newly released Oracle Optimized Solution for Oracle E-Business Suite, optimized for the Oracle E-Business Suite, which is in turn based on Oracle SPARC SuperCluster T4-4, Oracle Solaris and Oracle VM Server for SPARC, is ideal for customers looking to modernize their mission-critical Oracle E-Business Suite environments, lower operating expenses and maximize user productivity. The Oracle Optimized Solution for Oracle E-Business Suite can deliver significant cost savings versus both new and existing hardware infrastructure. For example, it has an up to 56 percent lower acquisition cost versus new IBM POWER7 and HP Superdome2-based configurations, and it offers up to 40 percent lower five-year TCO when consolidating existing IBM and HP infrastructure, while reducing rackspace footprint up to 73 percent. A half-rack SPARC SuperCluster easily supports hourly throughput of approximately 200,000 Oracle Financials transactions with 2,000 concurrent users in the application tier domain with 80 percent additional capacity available for higher loads or further consolidation.
