01 Oct 2013 Impressions from Oracle Open World 2013 [33010]
By Markus Flierl

"4 days of Oracle Open World are over now..., I've had a super-busy week with over 2 dozen customer meetings and 1/2 dozen analyst meetings, not to mention partners and internal colleagues. Oracle Open World is by far my most productive week of the year and I thrive on that! The best summary of the last week is what I heard from one of the analysts from a major analyst firm: 'We are seeing the Renaissance of SPARC and Solaris'.

It all started on Sunday with a customer advisory board in the San Francisco office. Some of my technical leads and I spent 1/2 day with key customers reviewing our key investments and getting their feedback on those. One of the customers gave a talk on their self-provisioning IaaS and PaaS cloud taking advantage of the latest S11 features. They are using a combination of Solaris zones as well as OVM SPARC in order to achieve super-high compression rates and drive the cost/VM well below what they can get with RHEL and VMWare on x86 hardware. Not to mention all of the other benefits of Solaris like higher up-time, security, super-efficient patching etc..."

26 Sep 2013 SPARC M6-32 Server Architecture [32990]
An Oracle Technical White Paper, September 2013 (14 Pages)

Oracle's SPARC M6-32 server is a highly reliable, easy-to-manage, vertically scalable system with many of the benefits of traditional mainframes - without the associated cost, complexity, or vendor lock-in.

In fact, this server delivers a mainframe-class system architecture at open-systems prices. With symmetric multiprocessing (SMP) scalability from one to 32 processors, memory subsystems as large as 32 TB, and high-throughput I/O architectures, the SPARC M6-32 server easily performs the heavy lifting required by consolidated workloads.

23 Sep 2013 SPARC M6-32 and Oracle SuperCluster M6-32 [33005]
Oracle's Big Memory Machines are Ideal for In-Memory Applications and Consolidation

Oracle's new systems dramatically redefine the price/performance equation in the high-end server market, offering customers entry-level price/performance, while maintaining extreme performance and the highest levels of availability. SPARC M6-32 servers with up to 32 terabytes of memory and up to 384 processor cores can run entire applications and databases in-memory to deliver unprecedented performance. Oracle SuperCluster M6-32 is Oracle's fastest and most scalable engineered system and integrates SPARC M6-32 servers with Exadata Storage Servers optimized for Oracle Database performance.

Oracle announced the SPARC M6-32 server and SuperCluster M6-32 engineered system, based on new 3.6 GHz, 12-core SPARC M6 processors.

Oracle SuperCluster M6-32 running Oracle Solaris demonstrates 5x better price/performance than the IBM Power 795 based solution. With 32 TB of main memory, the SPARC M6-32 has 2x the memory capacity of IBM's largest Power server.

13 Sep 2013 Sun Server X4-2 [32835]
versatile two-socket server for clustered computing and virtualization

Unrivaled Performance and Scalability for the Data Center

Oracle's new x86 servers pack in 50 percent more compute power than the previous generation. This performance boost comes while remaining within the same power profile as the prior generation of servers, making them some of the greenest servers for running mission-critical Oracle software.

Oracle's Sun x86 servers come included with advanced system management tools, Oracle Integrated Lights Out Manager and Oracle System Assistant.

Oracle's new Sun x86 servers include the Oracle Advanced Cooling System. This innovation uses cooling zones to maximize airflow at lower fan speeds while minimizing power consumption to ensure the maximum lifetime of temperature-sensitive components.
