SPECvirt_2013 Result

Oracle's SPARC T7-2 server delivered a world record SPECvirt_sc2013 result for systems with two to four chips.

  • The SPARC T7-2 server produced a result of 3198 @ 179 VMs SPECvirt_sc2013.

  • The two-chip SPARC T7-2 server beat the best four-chip x86 Intel E7-8890 v3 server (HP ProLiant DL580 Gen9), demonstrating that the SPARC M7 processor is 2.1 times faster than the Intel Xeon Processor E7-8890 v3 (chip-to-chip comparison).

  • The two-chip SPARC T7-2 server beat the best two-chip x86 Intel E5-2699 v3 server results by nearly 2 times (Huawei FusionServer RH2288H V3, HP ProLiant DL360 Gen9).

  • The two-chip SPARC T7-2 server delivered nearly 2.2 times the performance of the four-chip IBM Power System S824 server solution which used 3.5 GHz POWER8 six core chips.

  • The SPARC T7-2 server running Oracle Solaris 11.3 operating system, utilizes embedded virtualization products as the Oracle Solaris 11 zones, which in turn provide a low overhead, flexible, scalable and manageable virtualization environment.

  • The SPARC T7-2 server result used Oracle VM Server for SPARC 3.3 and Oracle Solaris Zones providing a flexible, scalable and manageable virtualization environment.

12 Mar 2010 Review: Oracle Sun Fire X4170 Server [22888]
Lots of Punch in this 1U Server

For the most part, the Oracle Sun Fire X4170 found favor with the reviewer for V3.co.uk, Alan Stevens, who pronounced the server " ... A good choice for companies looking for maximum performance from a 1U package," and a prime candidate for virtualization service. The X4170 compares quite favorably with its chief competition, the HP ProLiant DL360 G6 and the Dell PowerEdge R610. Stevens gives the Oracle Sun product such high marks in part because " ... it's a dual-processor server capable of accommodating the same range of dual-core and quad-core Xeon 5500 Nehalem chips."

16 Oct 2009 PC Pro Reviews Sun Fire X4170 [22426]
Holds Its Own Against Dell's PowerEdge R610, HP's ProLiant DL360 G6

The glowing review of the Sun Fire X4170 in PC Pro by Dave Mitchell cites little to find fault with in Sun's Xeon-5570 powered processors, allowing that there is merit in the claim that the X4170 holds its own against competing 4U solutions. This level of performance, he notes, comes with a TDP of 95 watts while also supporting Hyper-Threading and Turbo-Boost. He adds that the 5570s support memory speeds up to 1,333MHz and have the highest speed QPI of 6.4GT/sec.

Watch Out Dell and HP, Here Comes Some Serious Competition

Five out of six stars and the comment that the Sun Fire X4140 is one classy 1U rack server that has more of everything than the competition and is very competitively priced is the verdict pronounced by PC Pro's Dave Mitchell on this Sun solution. In Mitchell's assessment, with the Sun Fire X4140, Sun has come up with a server that will give both Dell and HP some serious competition at the lower end of the server market.
