06 Feb 2012 Oracle's SPARC T4-1B Server Module [25381]
For Sun Blade 6000 Infrastructure

Oracle's SPARC T4-1B Server Module runs Oracle Solaris on the Oracle Sun Blade 6000 chassis to provide an integrated platform that delivers deployment flexibility and high performance for single- and multi-threaded enterprise and mission-critical applications. The SPARC T4-1B features up to 10 single-socket SPARC T4-1B blades, enabling it to deliver extreme compute density and deliver a 5x increase in single-thread performance and 7x increase in floating point performance over previous generation. 10 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) is part of the package. In addition, the SPARC T4-1B features 100% Oracle SPARC/Solaris binary compatibility for easy migration and ongoing investment protection.

03 Oct 2011 Third-Generation Sun ZFS Storage 7420 Appliances Delivers Best-in-Class Performance and Efficiency [24696]
Outperforms NetApp’s FAS 3270A on SPC-1 Benchmark

The third-generation Sun ZFS Storage 7420 Appliance, newly announced by Oracle, delivered twice the performance at less than half the cost per SPC-1 IOPS of NetApp’s FAS 3270A on the SPC-1 benchmark. The Sun ZFS Storage 7420 Appliance turned in a result of 137,066 SPC-1 input/output operations per second (IOPS) at $2.99/ SPC-1 IOPS more than doubles the NetApp 3270A’s 68,035 SPC-1 IOPS at a fraction of its $7.48/ SPC-1 IOPS.

21 Sep 2011 SAS Grid omputing with the Sun Blade 6000 Modular System and the Sun ZFS Storage 7420 Appliance [24615]
Strong I/O Scalability Makes this Configuration a Winner

In her OTN article on creating a robust platform for SAS Grid Computing that uses the Sun Blade 6000 Modular System and the Sun ZFS Storage 7420 Appliance, Maureen Chew concludes that this particular blade/storage appliance combination and the Solaris 10 OS constitute an ideal environment for SAS Grid Computing applications. She writes that 30 compute hours in the SAS Grid Mixed Analytic workload finished in approximately 45 minutes, adding that a mirrored pool across two disk shelves was found capable of delivering more than 3 GB/sec of I/O throughput. Tests using a single PCIe, dual-ported, InfiniBand connection from the Sun ZFS Storage 7420 appliance performed roughly equivalent to a quad 10 GbE link aggregation despite the expectation that the quad 10 GbE might perform 20% to 25% better.

27 Jul 2011 Oracle x86 Infrastructure TCO Study [24393]
Oracle's Vertical Integration Carries the Day, Edison Group White Paper Finds

The Edison Group's white paper, "Oracle x86 Infrastructure: The Optimized Stack: Reducing Total Cost of Ownership through Vertical Integration" examines the cost structures across a range of system sizes and deployments for the core x86 system stack by comparing Oracle's integrated complete infrastructure with alternatives from HP and HP, all deployed with Red Hat Enterprise Linux and VMware vSphere, both together and separately.

Among the findings is that TCO with an Oracle solution is as much as 57 percent lower than comparable deployments. Edison evaluated two, four and eight socket systems over three and five year periods using the Oracle Sun Fire X4170 M2 server for the two socket study and the Sun Fire X4470 M2 for the four socket system.

The white paper concludes that, "By engineering the entire infrastructure with service and support in mind, Oracle can deliver lower TCO in the design and operation of its system, in the ease of deployment enabled by VM Templates and Validated Configurations ... and in the efficiency and effectiveness of its ... Premier Support package."
