Why Move to Oracle?
To ensure our customers are fully prepared to compete in their markets, Oracle is making significant engineering investments to ensure that Oracle systems coupled with Oracle software deliver the best possible business results. Integrated hardware, accelerated virtualization, and encryption ensure that cloud deployments benefit from the utmost agility and security without suffering performance losses. Enhancements made to the Oracle Database, Oracle Middleware and Oracle Applications enable them to take advantages of our processor and memory architecture, delivering better results at a lower cost than competing solutions.
Comparing IBM Power AIX environments to Oracle systems and Oracle SuperCluster, benchmark tests demonstrate:
- Up to 2.4x greater database performance1
- Up to 3.4x faster Java application server performance2 3
- Increased Oracle application performance : 1.9x faster for Siebel CRM4 and 3x faster for JD Edwards5
Oracle SuperCluster engineered systems deliver:
- Up to 10x faster database and application performance
- 32x faster deployment of database and cloud services
- 2x the memory capacity of IBM's largest Power server
- 5x better price/performance than the IBM Power 795 based solution 6
Innovation Delivers Advantages
Oracle SuperCluster and SPARC systems offer best-in-class technology and solutions to help you innovate while reducing risk and costs.
- Full featured cloud management provides advanced provisioning, security, and virtualization capabilities, making Oracle SuperCluster and Oracle SPARC Systems the ideal platforms for both private and service provider cloud deployments
- Compute, storage, and network resources can be quickly assigned and reallocated, with extreme efficiency and higher workload density per system than IBM Power VM6
- Large-scale memory and leading memory bandwidth enable you to take full advantage of today's in-memory offerings and prepared to take full advantage of current and future in-memory technology
- Oracle offers automated migration as well as world-class assistance and education services for DBAs and Power/AIX administrators to ensure a successful and risk free transition to Oracle Solaris
Making the Move
The Oracle Migration Factory goes beyond the standard migration and upgrade process. Oracle experts deliver an integrated solution designed to accelerate your new technology adoption, reduce migration deployment risk, and ensure optimized system performance.
