29 Mar 2011 SPARC T3-1B Doubles Performance on Oracle Fusion Middleware [24047]
WebLogic Avitek Medical Records Sample Application

Running a sample application of the Avitek Medical Records and Oracle WebLogic Server 11g software, a configuration using Oracle SPARC T3-1B and SPARC Enterprise M5000 servers, the latter running the Oracle database, showed excellent scaling of different configurations. The configuration had 2.1x times the transactional throughput over the previous generation UltraSPARC T2 processor based Sun Blade T6320 server module. The SPARC T3-1B server shows linear scaling as the number of cores in the SPARC T3 processor used in the SPARC T3-1B system module are doubled, writes Brian Whitney in a BestPerf blog. He notes that the Avitek Medical Records application instances were deployed in Oracle Solaris zones on the SPARC T3-1B server, allowing for flexible, scalable and lightweight architecture of the application tier.

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.
