03 Jun 2014 Sun Server X4-8 [36756]
Supports 120 cores (or 240 threads), 6 TB memory, 9.6 TB HDD capacity or 3.2 TB SSD capacity

Kelvin Gee writes, "We are excited to announce the release of Oracle's new 8-socket server, Sun Server X4-8. It's the most flexible 8-socket x86 server Oracle has ever designed, and also the most powerful. Not only does it use the fastest Intel Xeon E7 v2 processors, but also its memory, I/O and storage subsystems are all designed for maximum performance and throughput. Like its predecessor, the Sun Server X4-8 uses a 'glueless' design that allows for maximum performance for Oracle Database, while also reducing power consumption and improving reliability...

07 May 2014 Make Your Database Run Faster on Oracle Linux [36264]
By Rick Ramsey

Rick writes, "If you can get your hands on a Sun Flash Accelerator F40 PCIe Card, and you're running Oracle Database 11g Release 2 or later on Oracle Linux, you can use the Oracle Database Smart Flash Cache to improve performance and response times. That was a mouthful, so let me say it again.

  • Configure Sun Flash Accelerator F40 PCIe Card as a file system.
  • Configure Oracle Automatic Storage Management, a feature of Oracle Database, to use multiple Sun Flash Accelerator F40 PCIe Cards.
  • Configure the Database Smart Flash Cache capability of Oracle Database."

28 Feb 2014 Accelerating MySQL on Oracle Linux with Flash [35175]
Leveraging Oracle's Sun Flash Accelerator F80 PCIe card

Chris Kawalek writes, "Our spotlight this week is on a brand new white paper that can help you get the most out of MySQL running on Oracle Linux, with the help of Oracle's Sun Flash Accelerator F80 PCIe card. To give you an idea of the Oracle Linux part of this, here is an except from the paper's intro:..."

"Oracle Linux with Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel (UEK) was chosen for this study for several key reasons including its upstream support for the latest hardware relevant to modern data center operations, and SSD support and performance features such as SSD detect. In addition, MySQL database workloads benefit from the platform's deep integration with the solution stack, optimizations resulting from industry collaborations and enhancements in the UEK."
