03 Oct 2013 Oracle Introduces New x86 Servers [33099]
Sun Server X4-2 and Sun Server X4-2L

New Sun Server X4 Systems Offer Outstanding Performance and Reliability for Oracle Software

Designed for high performance, reliability and eco-responsibility, Oracle's new two-socket Sun Server X4 systems can deliver the versatility to address clustered computing and virtualization as well as the full spectrum of enterprise applications. With Oracle's new x86 servers, customers can increase application performance, reduce operating expenses and improve IT productivity running Oracle software on Oracle hardware.

Oracle announced new x86 servers, based on the latest Intel® Xeon® processors E5-2600 v2 product family.

Oracle's new Sun Server X4-2 and Sun Server X4-2L have set a SPECjEnterprise2010 world record for the best result achieved on a two-socket x86 server. Running Oracle WebLogic Server 12c and Oracle Database 12c on Oracle Linux, the Sun Server X4-2 delivered 11,259 EjOps.

Available now, Oracle's new Sun Server X4-2, Sun Server X4-2L and Sun Blade X4-2B systems are ideal for a broad range of mission-critical business workloads, such as database, middleware and enterprise business workloads in virtualized environments, as well as high-density, clustered computing in an enterprise cloud environment.

25 Sep 2013 Sun Server X4-2 Delivers Single App Server, 2-Chip x86 World Record SPECjEnterprise2010 [33008]
Using the Intel Xeon E5-2697 v2 processor,

Oracle's Sun Server X4-2 and Sun Server X4-2L servers, using the Intel Xeon E5-2697 v2 processor, produced a world record x86 two-chip single application server SPECjEnterprise2010 benchmark result of 11,259.88 SPECjEnterprise2010 EjOPS. The Sun Server X4-2 ran the application tier and the Sun Server X4-2L was used for the database tier.

  • The 2-socket Sun Server X4-2 demonstrated 16% better performance when compared to the 2-socket IBM X3650 M4 server result of 9,696.43 SPECjEnterprise2010 EjOPS.

  • This result used Oracle WebLogic Server 12c, Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server 1.7.0_40, Oracle Database 12c, and Oracle Linux.

Complete benchmark results are at the SPEC website, SPECjEnterprise2010 Results.

12 Sep 2013 Sun Server X4-2L [32836]
Unrivaled Performance and Scalability for the Data Center

Unrivaled Performance and Scalability for the Data Center

Oracle's Sun Server X4-2L system is the perfect integration of compute and storage in a single two rack unit (2U) enclosure for clustered databases and virtualized business applications. It is a unique and scalable enterprise-class, two-socket Sun x86 server.

Oracle's new x86 servers pack in 50 percent more compute power than the previous generation. This performance boost comes while remaining within the same power profile as the prior generation of servers, making them some of the greenest servers for running mission-critical Oracle software.

With the new Sun Server X4-2, Oracle has designed in the perfect balance of compute power, I/O bandwidth, and memory footprint in one rack unit, making it the best platform for high-density, clustered computing in an enterprise cloud environment.

Oracle raises the bar with the new Sun Server X4-2L, supporting more than 50 TB of internal storage and 24 CPU cores in two rack units. By maximizing storage and compute density simultaneously, Sun Server X4-2L is the ideal platform for compute-intensive applications requiring large amounts of direct-attached storage.

Oracle's Sun x86 servers come included with advanced system management tools, Oracle Integrated Lights Out Manager and Oracle System Assistant.

Oracle's new Sun x86 servers include the Oracle Advanced Cooling System. This innovation uses cooling zones to maximize airflow at lower fan speeds while minimizing power consumption to ensure the maximum lifetime of temperature-sensitive components.
