Five Ideas: Hardware
A new standard for extreme performance
On March 26, 2013, Oracle CEO Larry Ellison and Executive Vice President John Fowler unveiled SPARC servers with the world’s fastest microprocessors, setting a new standard for extreme performance. Here, watch a replay of the webcast, plus find out how to attend an event in one of 100 different locations to learn how your organization can benefit from the latest SPARC servers. Also, read on for insight about how other Oracle hardware solutions, including Oracle Exadata 3, Oracle Exalytics and Oracle Big Data Machine, are helping executives keep pace with the speed of business.
“Oracle has refreshed its SPARC family with the world's fastest processor and launched the world's fastest single server for Database, Java and multi-tier applications. The new SPARC T5 and M5 systems leapfrog the competition with up to 10x the performance of the previous generation, offering an unbeatable value for midrange and high-end enterprise computing.” — John Fowler, executive vice president, Systems, Oracle
“Leveraging the success of its predecessor, Oracle's new SPARC servers offer new levels of performance and scalability that allow partners to drive further value to customers managing critical application workloads — from Cloud deployments to large database and business analytics projects. With SPARC T5 and M5, and the vast array of OPN resources, partners have a great opportunity to transform customer environments with higher performance and a lower total cost of ownership.” — Joel Borellis, group vice president, Partner Enablement, Oracle
“The big highlight is that we’ve put a lot more memory into Oracle Exadata X3—both flash memory and RAM. Technology advances very quickly between generations, but normally very quickly means 20 to 30 percent a year. In Oracle Exadata X3, we’ve quadrupled the amount of flash memory.” — Juan Loaiza, senior vice president of systems technology
“We are delivering the latest techniques for managing large volumes of unstructured data with Oracle Big Data Appliance and are tightly integrating this with Oracle Database 11g, Oracle Exadata, and Oracle Exalytics In-Memory Machine—so organizations can do deeper analysis and quickly get real business value from big data,” — George Lumpkin, vice president of product management at Oracle
“Oracle Exalytics enables a more free-form analysis of data. So all users can quickly explore massive stores of enterprise-relevant data, rapidly uncover issues, and then conduct root-cause analyses across a wide range of possible scenarios in just a fraction of the time it takes today.” — Gaurav Rewari, vice president of product management at Oracle
