Tech titan Oracle recently introduced at Oracle Open World an all-new family of SPARC systems built on the revolutionary 32-core, 256-thread SPARC M7 microprocessor.
The new SPARC M7 processor-based systems, including the Oracle SuperCluster M7 engineered system and SPARC T7 and M7 servers, are designed to integrate with existing infrastructure and include fully integrated virtualization and management for cloud.
All existing commercial and custom applications will run on SPARC M7 systems unchanged with significant improvements in security, efficiency, and performance.
In addition, SPARC M7 is an open platform that developers can utilize to create new software that takes advantage of Security in Silicon and SQL in Silicon capabilities.
?Until now, no computing platform has been able to tackle security without significantly impacting application performance and efficiency,? said John Fowler, executive vice president for systems at Oracle.
?Today, Oracle is delivering breakthrough technology for memory intrusion protection and encryption, while accelerating in-memory analytics, databases and Java. Oracle?s SPARC T7 and M7 systems and Oracle SuperCluster M7 are starting a new era in delivering secure computing while increasing efficiency.?
