Oracle's SPARC T4 server momentum expands demand for SPARC systems

31 Jan 2012 Redwood Shores - Oracle has shipped thousands of midrange SPARC T4 servers with Oracle Solaris, making it one of the fastest ramping server products in Oracle history, and enabling customers to power their enterprise and mission-critical applications on Oracle Solaris 10 or 11, with full binary compatibility back to Oracle Solaris 2.6 guaranteed through the Oracle Solaris Binary Application Guarantee Programme.

Oracle's SPARC T4 servers have been adopted by more than 800 customers across industries, including BBVA, Core Services Corporation, Emerson, iXtend, Motorola Solutions, Portugal Telecom, Qualcomm, SirsiDynix, SkyOnline, SuperValu, TCS, Telefonica de Espana, United Telephone Mutual Aid Corporation, Wipro and Ziggo BV.

Oracle's SPARC T4 servers deliver superior performance versus IBM and HP and currently hold more than a dozen world records on key application workloads and industry standard benchmarks.

Designed for mission-critical applications, Oracle's SPARC T4 enterprise servers are engineered with Oracle's complete software stack to enable customers to consolidate multiple application tiers onto a single server, reduce system complexity, and improve utilization.

With Oracle Solaris 11, the first Cloud OS, SPARC T4 server customers can take advantage of Cloud-scale life cycle management with secure, fail-safe boot environments, safe roll-backs, 4x faster upgrades and 2.5x faster system re-boots.

Oracle's SPARC T4 servers deliver better value and help reduce cost with extensive built-in capabilities, including integrated on-chip cryptographic acceleration, as well as Oracle VM Server for SPARC and Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center at no additional cost with systems support.

Oracle's SPARC T4 servers are also available as part of Oracle Optimized Solutions, pre-tested, tuned and fully documented solutions that reduce costs and accelerate deployment times by up to 4.5x.

"Oracle’s SPARC T4 servers with Oracle Solaris provide a combination of performance, scalability and security that's resonating with customers across the globe", stated Masood Heydari, senior vice president, hardware development, Oracle. "There's tremendous momentum behind our SPARC T4 line and it's clear that our ability to engineer hardware and software together is making SPARC T4 the clear choice for next generation data centres."
