11 Feb 2011 Overview of Oracle Solaris Studio Compilers & Tools [23918]
Get to Know the Components and Features

The "Compile My Code blog" contains a link to a pdf that provides an overview of Oracle Solaris Studio Compilers and Tools. Oracle Solaris Studio is the solution that provides everything required to develop C, C++, and Fortran applications to run in Oracle Solaris 10 on SPARC or x86 and x64 platforms, or in Oracle Linux on x86 and x64 platforms. The compilers and tools in Oracle Solaris Studio are engineered to make applications run optimally on Oracle Sun systems. The blog notes that Oracle Solaris Studio tools are designed to leverage the capabilities of multicore CPUs including the Sun SPARC T3, UltraSPARC T2, and UltraSPARC T2 Plus processors, and the Intel Xeon and AMD Opteron processors. The tools allow users to more easily create parallel and concurrent software applications for these platforms.

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.

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.
