11 Oct 2012 Running Solaris 11 as a Control Domain on a T2000 [28013]
Installing Logical Domains 1.2 Solves the Problem

As increasing numbers of users running older T1-processor-based systems like T1000 and T2000 upgrade to Solaris 11, there are few problems since Solaris 11 runs on any T-series or M-series SPARC server. One case presents an exception, however: running Solaris 11 in a control domain on a T1000 or T2000 hosting logical domains. Jeff Savit addresses this complication in his post that, in fact, proves Solaris 11 can be installed on T2000 servers and used as a control domain by removing the preinstalled Oracle VM Server for 2.2 and installing Logical Domains 1.2 - the last version of LDoms to support T1-processor systems.

18 Aug 2011 Oracle RAC DB 11gR2 on Oracle VM Server for SPARC (LDoms) [24452]
A 'Cookbook' Approach to the Installation and Configuration

The blog post "Deploying Oracle RAC DB 11gR2 on LDoms Virtualization" is a "cookbook" approach to configuring and installing Oracle Real Application Cluster (RAC) Database on Solaris 10 and Logical Domains on Sun CMT servers (also using ZFS). He concludes that LDom is a good choice for RAC deployment for, among other reasons, it is a virtualized hosted environment; it permits easy reallocation/deallocation of system resources dynamically; it allows for optimized system utilization and space/utility consumption.

16 Feb 2011 Virtual Network - Part 3 [23914]
Creating Vitual Network Elements

The series on the network virtualization features of Oracle Solaris 11 Express written by Jeff Victor continues with his third post, which deals with the creation of virtual network elements (VNEs). Victor explains that his example employs an old Sun Fire T2000 with a single SPARC CMT (T1) chip and 32GB RAM. He pretends to be implementing a 3-tier architecture in this one system, where each tier is represented by one Solaris zone. This mythical example provides access to an employee database, he continues, and the 3-tier service is named 'emp' and VNEs will use 'emp' in their names to reduce confusion regarding the dozens of VNEs created for the services this system will deliver. Victor remarks on the convenience of the dladm(1M) command in Solaris that one can use to create, destroy and configure datalinks such as VNICs. He illustrates his post with numerous code samples.

06 Dec 2010 Oracle Processor Core Factor for SPARC Systems [23739]
SPARC64 VII+ Now a Core Multiplicator of 0.5

For many systems, the cost of the solution can be dominated by the Oracle license fee. A systems solution with CPUs that have a lower Core Processor Licensing Factor may end up with a lower overall cost than one with a smaller number cores that have a higher Oracle Licensing Factor (aka multiplier).

Oracle has set the multiplier for the newest SPARC chips - the SPARC T3 and the SPARC64 VII+ - very aggressively. The SPARC T3 has a multiplier of 0.25 - the same as the 1.0 GHz UltraSPARC T1 (as featured in the T1000 and T2000). The SPARC64 VII+ has a multiplier of 0.5, which is less than the 0.75 multiplier of the UltraSPARC IV, IV+ or the SPARC64 VI, VII which powered older systems like the V490, E6900 and E25k servers.

Note: the IBM POWER6 and POWER7 systems have a multiplier of 1.0. The latest AMD and Intel systems a have multiplier 0.5, twice that of the SPARC T3.

05 May 2010 Sybase Adaptive Server Enterprise (ASE) on Sun Storage 7000 Systems [22953]
White Paper Reports Easy, Straightforward Configuration

"Setup, Tuning, Workload Performance Guide for Sybase Adaptive Server Enterprise (ASE) on Sun Storage 7000 Systems" by Sanjay Gianchandani outlines the procedure for configuring the Sybase Adaptive Server Enterprise (ASE) database server to use Oracle's Sun Storage 7000 Unified Storage Systems as a storage unit.
