21 Nov 2016 How Oracle's Data Analytics Accelerator Turbocharges SPARC [58454]
By Carol Hildebrand , November 21st, 2016

Carol writes, "It's hardly a secret that Oracle's SPARC processor technology is built for speed. 'It is the fastest commercial processor on the planet - nothing comes close,' said Rick Hetherington, Oracle vice president of hardware development, during an Oracle OpenWorld 2016 session.

But that's just the start. By adding Software in Silicon to Oracle's latest SPARC processors, the M7 and S7, the company has created technology custom-tailored for today's data-fueled economy..."

22 Apr 2013 SPARC T5-8 Server Delivers World Record TPC-C Single System Performance Results [30424]
Bests the Performance of IBM's Top Contenders

Oracle's SPARC T5-8 server equipped with eight 3.6 GHz SPARC T5 processors achieved a world record result of 8,552,523 tpmC for a single system on the TPC-C benchmark, demonstrating this world record database performance running Oracle Database 11g Release 2 Enterprise Edition with Oracle Partitioning. This result shows that the SPARC T5-8 server is 2.4 times faster per chip compared to IBM Power 780 three-node cluster results for TPC-C tpmC and is 2.5 times less expensive per $/tpmC. The SPARC T5-8 server delivers 1.4 times better performance than the 32-processor IBM Power 595, at one-fifth the price/performance. This configuration will be available 09/25/13.

22 Apr 2013 SPARC T5-2 Performance Running Oracle Fusion Middleware SOA [30432]
Delivers 2.1X to 2.4X Improvement in Performance over SPARC T4-2

Oracle's SPARC T5-2 server running Oracle Fusion Middleware SOA Suite 11g on Oracle Solaris 11 demonstrated an impressive 2.1x to 2.4x throughput improvement with 2x concurrency over a similarly configured SPARC T4-2 server for Fusion Order Demo and Oracle Service Bus (OSB) benchmark workloads using 5 KB message size. Oracle Fusion Middleware SOA was deployed on virtualized environments using Oracle VM for SPARC to demonstrate consolidation of multiple SOA services onto a single system. The benchmark demonstrates SPARC hardware crypto performance within an OSB service using 100-byte element encrypted with AES and signed with RSA128.

22 Apr 2013 SPARC T5-8 Delivers Oracle OLAP Perf Version 3 World Record [30435]
Processes 2.93 Million Analytic Queries per Hour

Oracle's SPARC T5-8 server delivered world record query performance with near real-time analytic capability using the Oracle OLAP Perf Version 3 workload running Oracle Database 11g Release 2 on Oracle Solaris 11. Maximum query throughput on the SPARC T5-8 server is 1.6x higher than the 8-chip Intel Xeon E7-8870 server. The SPARC T5-8 server is clearly able to support at least 600 concurrent users querying OLAP cubes, processing 2.93 million analytic queries/hour with an average response time of 0.66 seconds/query. With a 60 second think time between query requests, the SPARC T5-8 server can support approximately 49,450 concurrent users.

29 Mar 2013 Oracle Releases SPARC Servers with the T5, World’s Fastest Microprocessor [30339]
SPARC T5 Processor Holds 17 World Records

Oracle has just released the new SPARC T5 and M5 servers running Oracle Solaris. The SPARC T5, the world’s fastest microprocessor, has set 17 world records and is the world’s best platform for enterprise computing at any scale. Oracle’s SPARC M5-32 high end server is up to 10x faster than previous generations and offers superior hardware domaining and RAS capabilities. It delivers a 2.5x cost advantage over a comparable IBM system. The new servers enable near linear scalability from 1 to 32 sockets, with one common core, one operating system, and one common set of systems management and virtualization tools.
