Will Oracle’s new platform SPARC customers to update?

Why is SPARC 8 so much better than the previous models?

By April Slattery

Oracle has announced its eighth generation SPARC platform today, which is designed to offer better performance, security and efficiency, according to the company.

Customers will be provided with higher levels of security capabilities, performance and availability for their workloads with Oracle’s new SPARC platform.

The eighth edition platform will deliver a modern enterprise platform to customers, powered by a new SPARC M8 microprocessor, new Oracle systems and IaaS. With this, Big Red claims that customers will be able to cost-effectively deploy their business applications with extreme high performance on-premises systems and in Oracle Cloud.

SPARC M8 will give 2-7 times higher performance to customers.

With the growing threat of cyber security across all different industries, Oracle’ new SPARC platform offers security systems that are two to seven times as fast at encryption and hashing than Oracle’s x86 and SPARC M7 microprocessors giving customers the best possible security system.

Additionally, Oracle’s new platform has an individual design that provides always-on security and internal data structures are protected from hacks and programming errors with a built-in protection system.

Edward Screven, Chief Corporate Architect at Oracle, said: “Oracle has long been a pioneer in engineering software and hardware together to secure high-performance infrastructure for any workload of any size.”

As well as higher levels of performance Oracle’s new processors based systems, such as SPARC M8, are designed to join together with already existing infrastructures and include virtualisation and management for private cloud.

Commercial and custom applications customers may already have will run on SPARC M8 systems but even better, with new performance levels, security capabilities and availability, making the user experience much more efficient.

Screven said: “SPARC was already the fastest, most secure processor in the world for running Oracle Database and Java. SPARC M8 extends that lead even further.”
