Redwood Shores, Calif. – April 10, 2012
Oracle today announced its new Netra x86 M3 servers, extending its broad portfolio for the fast-paced communications market.
Oracle’s new Netra x86 M3 servers are up to 2.5 times faster than the previous generation and are designed to support increasing network infrastructure workloads, cloud-based deployments, and help reduce costs with operating system, virtualization, cloud provisioning, and systems management built-in at no additional charge.

With Oracle Solaris or Oracle Linux, Oracle VM and Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center built-in, Oracle’s new Netra servers also allow simplified control, streamlined deployment of new services and offer maximum efficiency to help customers meet the demands of today’s telecommunications market.
“Oracle’s new Netra x86 M3 systems combine industry leading carrier grade designs with the new Intel Xeon processor E5-2600’s speed and efficiency to provide high performance, help enable low TCO and provide the massive scalability required for 4G network infrastructures and cloud-based deployments,” said Raju Penumatcha, vice president, Netra Systems and Networking, Oracle. “With these new systems, Oracle is continuing to raise the bar for next generation network infrastructure, offering the most complete, reliable portfolio of carrier-grade servers on the market.”
