09 Sep 2012 Ethernet Switch Sales Sizzle [27569]
Channel Register August 31, 2012

"The server market may have stalled a bit as Intel, AMD, IBM, Oracle, and Fujitsu work through various stages of processor transitions, but the Ethernet switch market is going gangbusters.

According to the box counters at IDC, the worldwide market for Layer 2 and 3 switching gear that adheres to the Ethernet protocol accounted for $5.52bn in revenues in the second quarter as companies begin the transition to from Gigabit to 10 Gigabit Ethernet switching in the data center – that's an increase of 8.5 per cent year-over-year across all Ethernet port speeds..."

06 Feb 2012 Oracle's SPARC T4-1B Server Module [25381]
For Sun Blade 6000 Infrastructure

Oracle's SPARC T4-1B Server Module runs Oracle Solaris on the Oracle Sun Blade 6000 chassis to provide an integrated platform that delivers deployment flexibility and high performance for single- and multi-threaded enterprise and mission-critical applications. The SPARC T4-1B features up to 10 single-socket SPARC T4-1B blades, enabling it to deliver extreme compute density and deliver a 5x increase in single-thread performance and 7x increase in floating point performance over previous generation. 10 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) is part of the package. In addition, the SPARC T4-1B features 100% Oracle SPARC/Solaris binary compatibility for easy migration and ongoing investment protection.

12 May 2011 Oracle Reports Superior Cryptographic Performance with SPARC T-3 vs. Xeon [24170]
Test Run Gets Near-line Speed over 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10 GbE) Network

Benchmark testing shows that the SPARC T3 processor running the IPsec AES-256-CCM can operate at near-line speed over a 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10 GbE) network, blogs Joerg Moellenkamp, who goes on to write that these results demonstrate more than 2x the throughput of the latest generation Intel Xeon processor. He adds that, with dedicated hardware support for encryption/decryption for AES and eleven other ciphers, the SPARC T3 processor is 12 times faster than the Intel Xeon processor for in-memory RSA decryption. Oracle's own announcement of these results asserts that, "This outstanding cryptographic throughput performance makes servers equipped with SPARC T3 processors an attractive platform for applications requiring secure network communications."

11 Mar 2011 Enabling End-to-End 10 Gigabit Ethernet in Oracle’s Sun Netra ATCA Product Family [24000]
The Coming Off-the-shelf Era in Telcom

The Oracle white paper "Enabling End-to-End 10 Gigabit Ethernet in Oracle’s Sun Netra ATCA Product Family" gives readers an overview of Oracle’s 10 Gigabit Ethernet-enabled Advanced Telecom Computing Architecture (ATCA) platforms and the spectrum of available Oracle Sun blades. With the Telcom industry moving to meet its needs for timing-dependent, high-throughput packet-processing applications with off-the-shelf hardware that typically have required custom hardware, the paper outlines the full ecosystem of ATCA products, highlighting how 10 GbE Ethernet is integrated into the Oracle ATCA blade family. The paper also provides an architectural overview of the SPARC T3, UltraSPARC T2, Intel Xeon, and AMD Opteron processor-powered ATCA blades, the 10 GbE Ethernet ATCA switch, the 10 GbE Ethernet System Platform, available Advanced Rear Transition Modules, and carrier-grade software that can be used to enhance and manage ATCA platforms. An additional appendix discusses considerations for power planning.
