SPARC SuperCluster: Engineered Systems Powered by SPARC and Solaris
SPARC SuperCluster versus IBM
Twice as Fast—SPARC SuperCluster T4-4 runs Java Applications and Oracle Database twice as fast as IBM Power 795.
$3.3 Million Lower Purchase Price—A sample deployment of a similar IBM Power 795 and SPARC SuperCluster T4-4 can be $3.3 million less.
8X Better Price/Performance—Based on the SuperCluster T4-4 performance and price advantage, SuperCluster results in 8 times better price to performance than the IBM Power 795
Sources for Comparison of Systems:
Systems cost based on server, software and comparable storage list prices (without discounts), as well as third party research. Performance comparison based on Oracle internal testing together with publicly available information about IBM Power 795 TurboCore system with highest processor speed commercially available (4.25 GHz) as of Sept 28, 2011.
Oracle’s SPARC SuperCluster T4-4 is the first general purpose engineered system that combines the computing power of the new SPARC T4 processor, the performance and scalability of Oracle Solaris 11, the optimized database performance of Oracle Exadata storage, and the accelerated middleware processing of the Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud.
