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.

24 May 2010 Oracle VM Server for SPARC [23156]
Reintroduction to the Former Sun Logical Domains

The once Sun Logical Domains is now the Oracle VM Server for SPARC. Leveraging the built-in SPARC hypervisor to subdivide supported platforms' resources (CPUs, memory, network, and storage) by creating partitions called logical (or virtual) domains, the Oracle VM Server allows for the creation of up to 128 virtual servers on one system to take advantage of the massive thread scale offered by the Sun SPARC Enterprise Systems with Chip Multithreading (CMT) technology. Honglin Su writing for Oracle's Virtualization Blog recapitulates the solution's features, architecture, and systems support.
