Supporting BMC’s efforts to employ a “virtualization first” approach in its IT organization, Oracle’s built-in, no-cost virtualization technology provides BMC the flexibility to deploy new system images in an hour or less, while maximizing data center floor space and driving down power and cooling costs.
Over a three-year period, Oracle’s Sun SPARC Enterprise T5240 server has saved BMC on average between $20,000 and $35,000 in power costs per server. Oracle’s SPARC T3-2 server is expected to nearly double those savings, consuming one-eighth the power and emitting one-eighth the CO2 of existing UltraSPARC IIIi-based servers.
“Oracle’s SPARC Enterprise T-Series servers are a mainstay in our data centers, supporting our R&D efforts with virtualized high density compute that enables us to quickly respond to requests for new resources and keep costs down,” said Steve Carl, Senior Technologist, BMC Software. “The powerful combination of Oracle hardware and software not only enables us to reach our aggressive energy reduction goals, but it also will allow us to expand our core center of innovation -- our R&D department.”
