Oracle Expands Sun Blade Portfolio

Oracle's Sun Blade Portfolio has been expanded for both the cloud and for highly virtualized environments, according to a recent release. The expanded portfolio, the press release explains, "... adds the SPARC T3-1B blade server and the dual-node Sun Blade X6275 M2 server module, as well as an Oracle VM blade cluster reference configuration and Oracle's optimized solution for Oracle WebLogic Suite." Best-in-class SPEC CPU2006 results with the Intel Xeon processor 5600 series, and six Fluent world records, demonstrate the clear superiority of the Sun Blade Portfolio to IBM's Power 755 running the NAMD workload. The SPARC T3-1B blade server is powered by the industry's first 16-core processor with up to 128 simultaneous threads and features integrated on-chip cryptographic acceleration to deliver 2x the throughput, 2x the memory, as well as a 4x I/O bandwidth improvement over previous generation models.

28 Dec 2010 Improved Performance of Sun Blade Portfolio [23763]
For Cloud and Highly Virtualized Environments

There is a posting on InfraRed about the enhanced Sun Blade portfolio written by Ferhat Hatay, who tells readers about the several benchmark results set by the portfolio, including best-in-class SPEC CPU2006 results with the Intel Xeon processor 5600 series, six Fluent world records and 1.8 times the price-performance of the IBM Power 755 running NAMD, a prominent bio-informatics workload. "Benchmarks on the Sun Blade X6275 M2 server module demonstrate the outstanding performance characteristics critical for running varied commercial applications used in cloud and highly virtualized environments," he writes.

22 Dec 2010 Sun Blade X6275 M2 Server Module: Oracle's Highest Compute Density Solution [23774]
Designed for Virtualization and for the Private Cloud

Oracle's diskless, dual-node Sun Blade X6275 M2 Server Module with up to 24 cores, is Oracle's highest compute density blade server and, as such, is ideally suited for cloud computing and virtualized environments. The hot-swappable Sun Blade X6275 server modules and Oracle VM, in combination with the Sun Blade 6000 chassis, deliver an elastic scalability solution capable of the rapid deployment and equally rapid scalability required in private clouds. Furthermore, the blade's high IOPS, low voltage Sun Flash modules enable savings in power and cooling costs. Yet another valuable benefit of combining the X6275 with the Sun Blade 6000 Ethernet Switched Network Express Module 24p 10GbE is that this overcomes potential network bottlenecks and reduces networking costs by eliminating an entire tier of datacenter switching and reducing cabling by 4:1.

21 Dec 2010 Sun Blade X6275 M2 Cluster with Sun Storage 7410 Shows 40% Improvement [23775]
Running Seismic Processing Reverse Time Migration

A recent BestPerf blog on performance of the Oracle Sun Storage 7410 system attached via 10 Gigabit Ethernet to a cluster of Oracle's Sun Blade X6275 M2 server modules demonstrated up to a 40% improvement over the previous generation server module in a 3D VTI Reverse Time Migration application, a heavily used geophysical imaging and modeling application for Oil & Gas Exploration. This balanced server/storage combination showed linear scalability for the total application throughput, including the I/O and MPI communication, to produce a final 3-D seismic depth imaged cube for interpretation. The report notes that the final image write time from the Sun Blade X6275 M2 server module nodes to Oracle's Sun Storage 7410 system achieved 10GbE line speed of 1.25 GBytes/second or better write performance. The effects of I/O buffer caching on the Sun Blade X6275 M2 server module nodes and 34 GByte write optimized cache on the Sun Storage 7410 system gave up to 1.8 GBytes/second effective write performance.

20 Dec 2010 Oracle Linux Delivers Top CPU Benchmark Results on Sun Blades [23768]
Exceeds HP ProLiant BL2X220c G5 by Significant Margin

Oracle Enterprise Linux 5.5, running on a dual-node Sun Blade X6275 M2 server module (two compute nodes per blade) delivered the best SPECint_rate2006 and SPECfp_rate2006 benchmark results for all systems with Intel Xeon processor 5000 sequence. The opposition included HP's dual-node blade server and, based on their single node performance, the Sun Blade X6275 M2 server module SPECfp_rate2006 score of 241 outperformed the best published HP ProLiant BL2X220c G5 server score by 3.2x, as reported in Oracle's Linux Blog.
