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.

11 Feb 2011 Overview of Oracle Solaris Studio Compilers & Tools [23918]
Get to Know the Components and Features

The "Compile My Code blog" contains a link to a pdf that provides an overview of Oracle Solaris Studio Compilers and Tools. Oracle Solaris Studio is the solution that provides everything required to develop C, C++, and Fortran applications to run in Oracle Solaris 10 on SPARC or x86 and x64 platforms, or in Oracle Linux on x86 and x64 platforms. The compilers and tools in Oracle Solaris Studio are engineered to make applications run optimally on Oracle Sun systems. The blog notes that Oracle Solaris Studio tools are designed to leverage the capabilities of multicore CPUs including the Sun SPARC T3, UltraSPARC T2, and UltraSPARC T2 Plus processors, and the Intel Xeon and AMD Opteron processors. The tools allow users to more easily create parallel and concurrent software applications for these platforms.

06 Dec 2010 Oracle Processor Core Factor for SPARC Systems [23739]
SPARC64 VII+ Now a Core Multiplicator of 0.5

For many systems, the cost of the solution can be dominated by the Oracle license fee. A systems solution with CPUs that have a lower Core Processor Licensing Factor may end up with a lower overall cost than one with a smaller number cores that have a higher Oracle Licensing Factor (aka multiplier).

Oracle has set the multiplier for the newest SPARC chips - the SPARC T3 and the SPARC64 VII+ - very aggressively. The SPARC T3 has a multiplier of 0.25 - the same as the 1.0 GHz UltraSPARC T1 (as featured in the T1000 and T2000). The SPARC64 VII+ has a multiplier of 0.5, which is less than the 0.75 multiplier of the UltraSPARC IV, IV+ or the SPARC64 VI, VII which powered older systems like the V490, E6900 and E25k servers.

Note: the IBM POWER6 and POWER7 systems have a multiplier of 1.0. The latest AMD and Intel systems a have multiplier 0.5, twice that of the SPARC T3.
