19 Jan 2016 EMC NetWorker Performance & Scalability with SPARC T5 [49286]
By Mike Mulkey

Mike Mulkey blogs, "EMC and Oracle have thousands of mutual customer installations worldwide who need a storage management suite which centralizes, automates, and accelerates data backup and recovery across their IT environment. The EMC NetWorker software provides the power and flexibility to meet these challenges on Oracle SPARC servers.

A new white paper is now released which reviews how NetWorker takes advantage of the capabilities of the SPARC T5-2 server and performs better compared to previous SPARC or x86 platforms due to the T5-2 server's enhanced resources and capabilities. This paper also highlights the best practices for optimal performance using EMC NetWorker on the SPARC T5-2 server platform."

05 Mar 2014 SPARC T5-2 Delivers World Record 2-Socket SPECvirt_sc2010 Benchmark [35182]
two-chip SPECvirt_sc2010 result of 4270 @ 264 VMs

Oracle's SPARC T5-2 server delivered a world record two-chip SPECvirt_sc2010 result of 4270 @ 264 VMs, establishing performance superiority in virtualized environments of the SPARC T5 processors with Oracle Solaris 11, which includes as standard virtualization products Oracle VM for SPARC and Oracle Solaris Zones.

The SPARC T5-2 server has 2.3x better performance than an HP BL620c G7 blade server (with two Westmere EX processors) which used VMware ESX 4.1 U1 virtualization software (best SPECvirt_sc2010 result on two-chip servers using VMware software).

The SPARC T5-2 server has 1.6x better performance than an IBM Flex System x240 server (with two Sandy Bridge processors) which used Kernel-based Virtual Machines (KVM).

This is the first SPECvirt_sc2010 result using Oracle production level software: Oracle Solaris 11.1, Oracle WebLogic Server 10.3.6, Oracle Database 11g Enterprise Edition, Oracle iPlanet Web Server 7 and Oracle Java Development Kit 7 (JDK). The only exception for the Dovecot mail server.

18 Feb 2014 SPARC T5-2 Produces SPECjbb2013-MultiJVM World Record [34976]
for 2-Chip Systems

The Oracle BestPerf blogs reports that, "The SPECjbb2013 benchmark shows modern Java application performance. Oracle's SPARC T5-2 set a two-chip world record, which is 1.8x faster than the best two-chip x86-based server. Using Oracle Solaris and Oracle Java, Oracle delivered this two-chip world record result on the MultiJVM SPECjbb2013 metric.

The SPARC T5-2 server achieved 114,492 SPECjbb2013-MultiJVM max-jOPS and 43,963 SPECjbb2013-MultiJVM critical-jOPS on the SPECjbb2013 benchmark. This result is a two-chip world record.

The SPARC T5-2 server running SPECjbb2013 is 1.8x faster than the Cisco UCS C240 M3 server (2.7 GHz Intel Xeon E5-2697 v2) based on both the SPECjbb2013-MultiJVM max-jOPS and SPECjbb2013-MultiJVM critical-jOPS metrics..."

06 Feb 2014 SPARC T5-2 server shatters another world record! [34773]
By Claudiac Caramelli

Claudiac writes, "Since their introduction last year, Oracle's T5 servers have topped performance metrics across enterprise workloads. Now SPARC T5 server has just shattered another world record...

In that test, the SPARC T5-2 server:

Showed the best performance per socket for a single system in the application tier Demonstrated 1.5 times higher performance compared to Oracle's 2-socket Sun Server X4-2 systems, running Intel's E5-2600 v2 series processor (Ivy Bridge) Delivered 29% better performance and 20% better price performance compared to a two-socket IBM PowerLinux POWER7+ processor-based server
