SPARC T5-Based Servers Specialization Criteria

 

SPARC T5-Based Servers is a Qualifying Specialization.

This qualifying Specialization launched March 26, 2013.

The SPARC T5-Based Servers Specialization recognizes partner organizations that are proficient in selling and implementing SPARC T5-Based servers.

SPARC T5-Based servers with Oracle Solaris are an enhancement to the existing product line, and are optimized for Oracle enterprise software. Oracle’s new SPARC T5 product family expands the current T-Series product family offering improvements over SPARC T4 performance leadership like 2.5X throughput improvement, 30% Clock frequency increase, and 4X increase in overall scalability.

Topics covered in this Specialization include hardware installation, setup, and configuration.

Oracle partners who achieve this Specialization are differentiated in the marketplace through proven expertise in SPARC T5-Based server-based solutions.

Effective April 1, 2014, this Product Mapping document has been updated with guidance on which types of transactions and references will be counted towards specialization criteria for on premise versus cloud specializations. As a courtesy during this notification period, the on premise and cloud transactions and references will count towards both the cloud and on premise version of this specialization until October 1, 2014. After October 1, 2014, the criteria must be fulfilled with the correct versions of the product transactions and customer references.

*U.S. and Canada: Partners in the U.S. and Canada may include transactions with public sector entities for the purposes of achieving Specialization status. However, transactions with public sector entities will not be included in determining any benefit associated with either Specialization or Oracle PartnerNetwork membership (other than Specialization status and use of the associated logo) that is based on the number of transactions, revenue amounts, or any other metric based on sales. Public sector entities include any government, legislature or decision making body, judiciary, court, instrumentality, department, or agency at any level (national, state, city, local, municipal or otherwise); entities managed, controlled or majority owned by government interests; public organizations or foundations of any kind (including political parties, political organizations, or political candidates); and any public international organization, such as, but not limited to, the International Red Cross, United Nations, or the World Bank; and public utilities, public higher education, public K-12 schools, or public healthcare business entities. Availability of Specialization Benefits and Tools is subject to the OPN Policies.
