07 Apr 2014 Oracle DB 12c runs best on SPARC [35739]
What makes Solaris and SPARC servers the best infrastructure for Oracle 12c enterprise databases?

Oracle's vision of Engineered Systems is transforming into reality with every new product that Oracle is launching. Oracle Database 12c, which was launched in 2013, is an example on how Oracle software is optimized for Oracle Solaris SPARC. Oracle Database 12c is co-engineered with Solaris engineering team and Oracle's world record SPARC T5 servers have best performance and maximum ROI.

Independent Software Vendors (ISV) who are developing applications using both Oracle DB 12c and Solaris are taking advantage of one core technology, one operating system, one virtualization tool for all the range of SPARC servers. An ISV application can boost its performance, flexibility and security just by using SPARC high numbers of cores and big memory, combined Oracle 12c/Solaris/SPARC multi-tenancy, zones and LDoms light-weight virtualization technologies, SPARC and Solaris build-in encryption, etc.

Let's take a look at how all this is translated into technical features. What makes Solaris and SPARC servers the best infrastructure for Oracle 12c enterprise databases?...

05 Mar 2014 SPARC T5-2 Delivers World Record 2-Socket SPECvirt_sc2010 Benchmark [35182]
two-chip SPECvirt_sc2010 result of 4270 @ 264 VMs

Oracle's SPARC T5-2 server delivered a world record two-chip SPECvirt_sc2010 result of 4270 @ 264 VMs, establishing performance superiority in virtualized environments of the SPARC T5 processors with Oracle Solaris 11, which includes as standard virtualization products Oracle VM for SPARC and Oracle Solaris Zones.

The SPARC T5-2 server has 2.3x better performance than an HP BL620c G7 blade server (with two Westmere EX processors) which used VMware ESX 4.1 U1 virtualization software (best SPECvirt_sc2010 result on two-chip servers using VMware software).

The SPARC T5-2 server has 1.6x better performance than an IBM Flex System x240 server (with two Sandy Bridge processors) which used Kernel-based Virtual Machines (KVM).

This is the first SPECvirt_sc2010 result using Oracle production level software: Oracle Solaris 11.1, Oracle WebLogic Server 10.3.6, Oracle Database 11g Enterprise Edition, Oracle iPlanet Web Server 7 and Oracle Java Development Kit 7 (JDK). The only exception for the Dovecot mail server.

By Chris Kawalek

Chris writes, "If you missed Virtual Sysadmin Day last month, it is available in replay mode. It's not quite the same as the real-time environment where you could ask questions, but you do get recorded versions of the presentations that were given to give you some extra context for working through the Hands On Labs. Also, if you are in EMEA friendly time zones, there is a second live Virtual Sysadmin Day coming up on March 18. You can register here.
