28 Mar 2011 Traffixsystems' Diameter Router and Load Balancer Scales on Solaris SPARC T3 [24046]
Meets Signaling Demands of Telco Networks Moving to LTE and 4G Networks

Diameter, developed by traffixsystems and a successor to the company's RADIUS product, has been paired with SPARC Enterprise T-Series technology, Oracle Solaris 10 Zones and Oracle Solaris Cluster to enable telco network operators moving to LTE to accommodate the increase in signaling anticipated to accompany the growth in both LTE and 4G networks. Oracle's ISV Engineering staff benchmarked the Traffix Diameter Router and Load Balancer on a SPARC T5220 under a session-based online-charging scenario in which each client sent the following DCCA application commands: Initiate; 10 Updates; Terminate. The typical request size for this benchmarking exercise was 1,000 bytes and response size was 200 bytes. Throughout the testing, the Traffix software proved easily able to linearly scale across the 64 threads available on the 8-core UltraSPARC T2+ processor, to process Diameter transactions in parallel and to deliver extremely high overall throughput.

02 Nov 2010 Timothy Prickett Morgan Says Oracle is Back in the UNIX Game [23633]
With SPARC T3 servers

Timothy Prickett Morgan recently posted an article in "The Register" stating, "Oracle has slashed prices and boosted performance to show IBM and HP that it is indeed back in the Unix game."

He says that two of the four new T-3 servers are now shipping and they are being offered in the Oracle online store and they offer "substantially better bang for the buck than their SPARC T2 and T2+ predecessors."

To show the relative improvement in bang for the buck of the T3 machines, Timothy has built a comparison table which shows the chips, cores, clocks, memory configuration, and a metric he calls Relative Ooomph. That table shows that the T3 servers offer much better price performance than the T5120, T5220, and T5420 machines they replace in the T Series server lineup.

30 Sep 2010 "Oracle Database on Sun SPARC Enterprise T-series Systems" [23526]
Considering When the Sun SPARC Enterprise M-series Server Line Might Be the Better Choice

The Oracle white paper "Oracle Database on Sun SPARC Enterprise T-series Systems" addresses systems architects who are evaluating Oracle Database deployment on Oracle’s T-Series Systems for their environment. While Oracle Database generally scales well on T-series servers, the paper notes, certain single-threaded operations do not. The paper identifies those deployment scenarios that are best suited for Oracle Database deployment on T-series servers and identifies use cases for which Oracle Database deployment on T-series servers is not recommended. In such cases, the paper recommends Oracle’s SPARC Enterprise M-Series servers.

24 May 2010 Oracle VM Server for SPARC [23156]
Reintroduction to the Former Sun Logical Domains

The once Sun Logical Domains is now the Oracle VM Server for SPARC. Leveraging the built-in SPARC hypervisor to subdivide supported platforms' resources (CPUs, memory, network, and storage) by creating partitions called logical (or virtual) domains, the Oracle VM Server allows for the creation of up to 128 virtual servers on one system to take advantage of the massive thread scale offered by the Sun SPARC Enterprise Systems with Chip Multithreading (CMT) technology. Honglin Su writing for Oracle's Virtualization Blog recapitulates the solution's features, architecture, and systems support.
