Oracle unveils new line of servers

The new servers expand the company's SPARC portfolio.

By CBR Staff Writer

Oracle has unveiled a new line of servers, with the new SPARC T5 and M5 machines running Oracle Solaris.

The company said the new midrange servers are based on the SPARC T5, which it claims is the world’s fastest microprocessor.

The new servers, which expand the company’s SPARC portfolio, include "zero-overhead" virtualisation through Oracle VM Server for SPARC, and unified systems management via Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center 12c.

Oracle said the servers will address multiple application requirements and meet demanding service level agreements.

Oracle executive vice president of systems John Fowler said: "Oracle has refreshed its SPARC family with the world’s fastest processor and launched the world’s fastest single server for database, Java and multi-tier applications. The new SPARC T5 and M5 systems leapfrog the competition with up to 10x the performance of the previous generation, offering an unbeatable value for midrange and high-end enterprise computing."

The company has also introduced two new Oracle Optimized Solutions to exploit the performance of SPARC T5 servers, Oracle storage, Oracle Database and Oracle Middleware. The new solutions include Oracle Optimized Solution for Oracle Database and Oracle Optimized Solution for WebLogic Server.

Oracle said the new solutions will help maximise application performance and availability while lowering acquisition cost and operating expenses.
