“As a leading provider of service performance assurance and optimization software solutions for IP-based network and application services, Oracle Solaris continues to be critical to the success of our business. With Oracle Solaris 11, we have measured strong memory performance increases for both Java applications and the Oracle Database. We have also successfully tested Oracle Solaris 11 on Oracle’s new SPARC T4-4 Server and our central storage and consolidation layer, based on Oracle Database 11GR2, has shown major performance increases. In addition, we have successfully tested vertical scalability through Oracle Solaris Zones and found deployment and administrations have been tremendously simplified in Oracle Solaris 11. Last but not least, our applications are storage I/O intensive and we have improved our performances thanks to ZFS on hybrid storage pools and mechanisms such as LogBias, ZIL and L2ARC.”
