Oracle expands Sun Blade Systems portfolio for cloud, virtualised environments

Available with Oracle's Solaris, Linux and VM pre-installed

By CBR Staff Writer

Oracle has expanded its Sun Blade systems portfolio with new SPARC and x86 blade products and supporting integrated offerings.

The expanded Sun Blade systems portfolio provides customers with optimised and integrated systems for cloud and highly-virtualised environments.

The enhanced portfolio adds the SPARC T3-1B blade server and a dual-node Sun Blade X6275 M2 server module to existing blades, storage networking modules, and an Oracle VM blade cluster reference configuration and optimised offering for its WebLogic Suite.

The portfolio featured in the SPARC Solaris-based Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud T3-1B, enables Sun Blade modular systems to offer extreme compute density and reduced power consumption, simplified management and reliability, availability and serviceability (RAS) features for enterprise customers.

Oracle said the Sun Blade server modules will also be available with its Solaris, Linux and VM pre-installed.

In addition, when it is included with Oracle Enterprise Manager 11g, the complete application-to-disk infrastructure can be easily deployed, managed and maintained.

The dual-node Sun Blade X6275 M2 server module is an ideal choice for highly virtualised environments and cloud infrastructure, increasing compute density and improving performance while reducing power consumption.

Oracle’s network fabric provides integration with Ethernet and InfiniBand over a single switched fabric, delivering unique virtualisation capabilities and extreme application performance using its own silicon capabilities.

Oracle VM blade cluster reference configuration provides a documented best practice guide that speeds VM deployment time for customers implementing Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) clouds or any highly virtualised software infrastructure.

Oracle systems executive vice president John Fowler said they continue to expand their Sun Fire x86 clustered systems with new SPARC and x86 blade and network products and these enhancements help facilitate integration into existing datacentres and support new application-to-disk offerings that address their customers’ most challenging cloud requirements.
