15 Feb 2013 Examining Oracle Solaris 10 1/13 Secure Copy Performance for High Latency Networks [29787]
Findings Reveal Significantly Improved Performance

With Oracle Solaris 10 1/13, the performance of secure copy or scp is significantly improved for high latency networks Brian posts. Oracle Solaris 10 1/13 enabling a TCP receive window size up to 1 MB has up to 8 times faster transfer times over the latency range 50 - 200 msec compared to the previous Oracle Solaris 10 8/11, he writes, adding that the default TCP receive window size of 48 KB delivered similar performance in both Oracle Solaris 10 1/13 and Oracle Solaris 10 8/11. Settings above 1 MB for the TCP receive window size delivered similar performance to the 1 MB results.

05 Feb 2013 Mazda Consolidates IT Infrastructure for Automobile Design and Development SPARC T4 Servers [29678]
Realizes Multiple Economies, Efficiencies

Mazda Motor Corporation has consolidated its Mazda Digital Innovation (MDI) system on Oracle’s SPARC T4-4 and T4-2 servers running Oracle Solaris 10. This deployment has enabled Mazda to achieve the following improvements in its IT profile:

  • 50 percent faster PDM tool response time at peak hours, even with as many as 3,500 users initiating 1 million transactions during peak hours at the beginning and end of each day
  • 40 percent reduction in monthly operational costs
  • 75 percent lower monthly server power consumption
  • 90 percent reduction in its data center footprint. Mazda reduced its MDI system from 12 racks to one

05 Dec 2012 Video Interview: How Oracle Engineers Make SPARC Chips Fast [28784]
Comprehensive Approach to System Design and Integration Pays Off

Rick Ramsey of OTN interviewed Brad Carlile, Senior Director of Performance Engineering, Oracle, at Oracle OpenWorld 2012 on the subject of designing the SPARC T4 Processor. Carlile clarified the nature of several recent benchmarking results, noting that it is not the chip alone that is under scrutiny but an three-tier stack. He further assured Ramsey that, in benchmarking virtualized environments, security measures were solidly in place. Security encryption on the Oracle Database, he said, is very easy on the SPARC T4. Carlile also stressed the comprehensive approach to integrated systems within Oracle that helps ensure customers of no overheads in virtualization operations.

16 Nov 2012 The SPARC SuperCluster: An Overview from the Engineered Systems Point of View [28485]
Learn What Makes the SPARC SuperCluster a Unique Expression of an Engineered Approach to IT

Karoly Vegh provides an overview of the SPARC SuperCluster at a vehicle for discussing the nature of Oracle's engineered systems. He highlights the features, both improved and new, that users will find in the SPARC SuperCluster, including SPARC T4-4 Servers as complete nodes; Exadata storage cells; Infiniband; and unified storage with ZFSSA. If you'd really like to understand the meaning of "engineered systems," spend a few minutes with Karoly Vegh's illuminating discussion.

09 Nov 2012 SPARC T4-4 Delivers New World Record Performance [28397]
Subsecond Response Time on Oracle OLAP Perf Version 2 Benchmark

Oracle's SPARC T4-4 server server with 4 x SPARC T4 processors, 3.0 GHz, and 1 TB memory delivered world record performance with subsecond response time on the Oracle OLAP Perf Version 2 benchmark using Oracle Database 11g Release 2 with Oracle OLAP option running on Oracle Solaris 11. Data storage employed 1 x Sun Fire X4275 (using COMSTAR) and 2 x Sun Storage F5100 Flash Array (each with 80 FMODs). Redo storage used 1 x Sun Fire X4275. The SPARC T4-4 server achieved throughput of 430,000 cube-queries/hour with an average response time of 0.85 seconds and the median response time of 0.43 seconds.
