“In our testing we found that the SPARC T5 server had 30 percent better response time compared to a similarly configured SPARC T4 server running our T24 banking application. This will dramatically reduce the time it takes our banking customers to run the end of day, end of month and end of quarter calculations. We expect our customers will also find a nearly 3x increase in online transaction processing (OLTP) throughput, resulting in improved value from the overall solution.” 
–– Simon Henman, Technology Manager, Temenos

Your existing applications just run on the new SPARC T5 and M5-32 systems thanks to the Oracle Solaris Compatibility Guarantee.
