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.

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.

30 Dec 2013 How to Control the Zone's Network Bandwidth on Solaris 11 [34210]
Blog by Lingeswaran R

Lingeswaran blogs, "Oracle has made a lot of changes in Solaris 11's network architecture compare to Solaris 10. Solaris 11's network virtualization and network resource control to the OS is absolutely brilliant. The biggest problem with Oracle Solaris 10 is that we have forced to use shared IP type for local zones , since exclusive IP type required a dedicated NIC's for each zone. In shared IP model, you can't be able to separate the network traffic of local zones.For an example if there is an issue with one local zone ,then you have to run snoop command from global zone to capture the network traffic. But in Solaris 11, you can able to run snoop command from local zone itself.

So you no need to capture the unnecessary traffic of global and other local zones..."

10 Dec 2013 Oracle Sponsors OpenStack Foundation [34000]
Offers Customers Ability to Use OpenStack to Manage Oracle Cloud Products and Services

Oracle has become a Corporate Sponsor of the OpenStack® Foundation

Oracle is planning to integrate OpenStack cloud management components into Oracle Solaris,

Oracle Linux, Oracle VM, Oracle Virtual Compute Appliance, Oracle Infrastructure as a Service, Oracle's ZS3 Series, Axiom storage systems and StorageTek tape systems.

In addition, Oracle will also be working to achieve OpenStack compatibility with Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud, Oracle Compute Cloud Service and Oracle Storage Cloud Service.

This integration is intended to enable customers to use OpenStack to manage Oracle technology-based clouds, taking full advantage of the stability, efficiency, performance, scalability and security of these Oracle products.

Oracle Solaris and Oracle Linux provide industry-leading security, performance, scalability and observability for cloud-based deployments, allowing customers to run their most demanding enterprise applications in private or public clouds. Integration with OpenStack will allow customers to integrate Oracle Solaris Zones and Oracle VM environments with other OpenStack platforms.
