REDWOOD SHORES,CA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/27/13 -- Oracle (NASDAQ: ORCL)
Oracle extends its lead in hardware and software engineered together with the new Oracle SuperCluster T5-8, Oracle's fastest engineered system. Based on the world's fastest database server, ultra-fast database storage, and the world's fastest microprocessor, it delivers extreme performance and 10x better price performance than a comparable IBM Power7+-based solution(1).
•Oracle today announced the Oracle SuperCluster T5-8 engineered system. •Oracle SuperCluster T5-8 delivers extreme performance by co-engineering SPARC T5-8 servers and Oracle Exadata Storage Server hardware with Oracle database, middleware and systems software to provide:•Up to 10x faster database and application performance than a build-your-own IT approach. •2.5x better performance than the previous generation SuperCluster.•Versus a build-your-own IT approach, Oracle SuperCluster T5-8 helps increase data center efficiency through:•5x lower TCO by running Oracle Database and enterprise applications together on a single system •5x faster time to value •32x faster deployment of database cloud services.•Oracle will host a Webcast today at 10 a.m. PT to discuss SuperCluster T5-8 in more detail. •Engineered with no single point of failure, SuperCluster T5-8 enables the high availability needed for enterprise-critical databases and applications. •Oracle SuperCluster T5-8, with built-in zero-overhead virtualization and security, combined with database and infrastructure-as-a-service capabilities, is ideal for consolidation and enterprise private cloud deployments. •Industry-leading state-of-the-art design integrates over 16 TB of high-performance flash storage along with hundreds of compute cores of the world's fastest microprocessor and hundreds of terabytes of accelerated database storage(2). The system is tightly coupled with an extreme low-latency fabric and delivered, managed and optimized for unprecedented database and application performance. •Oracle accelerates application and database cloud service deployments on SuperCluster with Oracle Optimized Solutions for the Oracle E-Business Suite, Oracle PeopleSoft Human Capital Management, Enterprise Database Cloud, Oracle WebCenter Content and SAP. •Engineered, tested and integrated together, Oracle SuperCluster T5-8 provides best of breed technology at every level, and enables customers to avoid the risks associated with build-it-yourself systems.•New features in Oracle Solaris 11 provide unique capabilities for Oracle Database Administrators and Java Application Architects. Co-engineered with Oracle software and hardware, Oracle Solaris delivers the highest service levels through self healing capabilities and helps meet demanding compliance requirements for enterprise cloud deployments. •Oracle VM Server for SPARC enables provisioning of databases and applications across a range of performance, capacity and availability attributes to cost effectively manage SLAs. Combining the provisioning capabilities of Oracle Solaris 11 with Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center makes it possible to rapidly configure, deploy, monitor and manage the most sophisticated and secure agile mission-critical service environments •Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center 12c uses a holistic approach to manage Oracle SuperCluster and provides comprehensive lifecycle management from monitoring to management and ongoing maintenance for the entire system. •Oracle's Sun ZFS Storage 7320 Appliances provide the high throughput, high performance to power Oracle Database and I/O-intensive enterprise applications, as well as maximum levels of efficiency to help reduce capacity and enable storage consolidation.
