Oracle has delivered a complete refresh of its SPARC enterprise server product line and has unveiled SPARC Solaris-based Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud T3-1B.

The SPARC Solaris-based Exalogic Elastic Cloud T3-1B engineered system is an integrated hardware and software system tested and tuned by the company to run Java and non-Java applications with extreme performance.

The SPARC Solaris-Based Exalogic Elastic Cloud System is designed for large-scale, mission-critical deployments, and consists tested hardware and software system that run Java and non-Java applications with extreme performance.

The Exalogic Elastic Cloud T3-1B combines SPARC servers running Solaris 11 Express with InfiniBand-based I/O fabric, the WebLogic Server and other enterprise Java-based Oracle middleware products.

The new Exalogic Elastic Cloud T3-1B supports thousands of Java and non-Java applications; and is optimised for multi-threaded applications, enabling customers to achieve increased performance for multi-threaded enterprise Java software, such as Oracle WebLogic Server.

In addition, the Exalogic Elastic Cloud T3-1B also provides customers with in-depth hardware analysis and helps detect hardware failures before they happen through the integration between SPARC T-Series servers running Oracle Solaris, and features Solaris Predictive Self Healing.
