06 Sep 2012 Netra Blade X3-2B Server Module: Ideal Choice for Communications and Cloud Deployments [27513]
Pairs Superbly with Sun Netra 6000 Chassis for High Performance, Long-term Service

Oracle's new carrier grade Netra Blade X3-2B server module (formerly the Sun Netra X6270 M3) is designed for building out 4G networks and cloud-based infrastructures in x86 environments. Paired with I/O architecture of the Sun Netra 6000 chassis, it is available with up to 10 Netra Blade X3-2B server modules. Two Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 Series-based Platform for Intelligent Systems power the Netra Blade X3-2B. Its large memory capacity and unmatched memory bandwidth make it ideal for high performance communication workloads and cloud infrastructure deployments. Low-voltage DIMMs running at true 1,600 MHz enable delivery of high application performance and power savings.

18 Jul 2012 Oracle Aligns x86 Rackmount and Blade Server with Oracle Engineered Systems Naming Conventions [26949]
Changes also Apply to Netra Carrier Grade Servers

Oracle has renamed its Sun x86 servers and Netra servers to align them with the naming conventions of Oracle’s Engineered Systems, which have always used Oracle’s x86 rackmount systems as the basis of its integrated and optimized solutions. Thus, for example, the former Sun Fire X4170 M3 Server is now the Sun Server X3-2 and above; the Sun Netra X4270 M3 is now Netra Server X3-2; the Sun Blade X6270 M3 is now the Sun Blade X3-2B, and so on.

11 Apr 2012 Oracle Launches Five New Sun x86 Servers [25961]
"The Industry’s Best x86 Platform for Oracle Applications"

Timothy Prickett Morgan discusses Oracle's new rack servers and blade servers, based on Intel's Xeon E5-2600 two-socket server processors with three machines in the regular x86 server lineup using AC power and two in the ruggedized Netra line with a DC power option. These are the Sun Fire X4170 M3; the Sun Fire X4270 M3; the Sun Blade X6270 M3; and the ruggedized, DC-powered, carrier grade Netra X4270 M3 and the Netra X6270 M3. Prickett Morgan predicts there will not be any microserver based on the new Intel Xeon E5-2600s, their E5-1600 single-socket offshoots, or the forthcoming "Ivy Bridge" Xeons.

31 Aug 2011 Thinking About an Upgrade to Oracle 11g? [24496]
Might Be a Good ... Make that Very Good ... Idea

How many reasons would it take to convince you to upgrade to Oracle Database 11g? Mike Dietrich offers six worth thinking about ... maybe more than once:

  • Oracle support period will end soon or has ended
  • Oracle EBS, Siebel, Peoplesoft, JD Edwards, even SAP - will require Oracle 11.2 for their currently supported versions

  • The last word in security will be found only ... that is, only ... in 11.2

  • Cost savings: 11.2's advanced compression permits users to eliminate superfluous and costly fast disks; and Active DataGuard allows users to employ standby for a number of purposes.

So how does 11.2 look in this light?

15 Aug 2011 Sun Blade X6270 M2 with Oracle WebLogic Sets World Record on 2-Processor SPECjEnterprise 2010 Benchmark [24448]
Outperforms IBM System HS22 and IBM Power 730 Express Servers

The Sun Blade X6270 M2 two-chip server modules used Oracle WebLogic Server 11g Release 1 (10.3.5) application, Java SE 6 Update 26, and Oracle Database 11g Release 2 to set a world record performance mark against both the IBM System HS22 Server and the IBM Power 730 Express server. The X6270's results were superior to the HS22 and the 730 by 47% and 33%, respectively. The Sun Blade X6270 M2 application server was equipped with 2 x 3.46 GHz Intel Xeon X5690 chips, 48 Gigabytes (GB) of memory, and 4 x 10 GbE NIC.
