Oracle?s new SPARC T5 midrange servers are based on the SPARC T5, which is said to be the world?s fastest microprocessor. So far, the servers have set 17 world records. The company said its SPARC T5-8 is the fastest single server for Oracle database. Oracle?s SPARC T5 and M5 servers join its entry-level SPARC T4 servers to complete Oracle?s new SPARC family, spanning entry-level, midrange, and high-end. The new SPARC M5-32 server is up to 10x faster than previous generations and offers superior hardware domaining and RAS capabilities. The new servers expand Oracle?s SPARC portfolio and enable near linear scalability from 1 to 32 sockets, with one common core, one operating system, and one common set of systems management and virtualization tools, making them ideal platforms for building clouds. The servers also address multiple application requirements and quickly meet demanding service level agreements. The new SPARC servers and Oracle Solaris deliver mainframe-class reliability, availability, and serviceability (RAS), with the Oracle Solaris Guarantee Program for binary and source compatibility to ensure the highest levels of enterprise application availability and backwards compatibility to run a broad range of new and existing enterprise applications. Additionally, Oracle?s new SPARC T5 and M5-32 servers include zero-overhead virtualization via Oracle VM Server for SPARC and unified systems management via Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center 12c at virtually no extra cost with Oracle Premier Support services. Oracle also announced two new Oracle-optimized solutions that exploit the performance of SPARC T5 servers, Oracle storage, Oracle Database and Oracle Middleware. Oracle also announced two new solutions ? the Oracle Optimized Solution for Oracle Database and the Oracle Optimized Solution for WebLogic Server. ]]>
