Oracle Servers

Customers’ on-premises enterprise workloads achieve the highest performance, security, and reliability when using Oracle’s extensive portfolio of x86 and SPARC servers. Each server is optimized to run enterprise applications, Java applications and Oracle Database workloads at peak performance. Companies reduce the number of servers they need and lower total cost of ownership (TCO) with Oracle servers.

Increase performance and security with Oracle SPARC servers

Learn how companies improve the performance, efficiency, and security of UNIX environments with Oracle SPARC M8 and T8 servers.

The Oracle Server difference

  • Optimized for Oracle software

    Customers achieve breakthrough performance, cost efficiencies, and security for business-critical workloads with Oracle servers. Customers also increase uptime for Oracle applications by running them on any Oracle server and Java applications run 2X faster on Oracle SPARC servers using unique, built-in accelerators.1

  • Integrated, end-to-end security

    Oracle servers mitigate security threats against customers’ data and applications without compromising performance. Built-in encryption, application memory protection, and advanced security features protect customer databases and applications data throughout its lifecycle. Trusted boot capability on Oracle x86 servers protects companies from malware and undetected intrusions.

  • Maximum availability

    Oracle servers maximize uptime for all customer databases and applications. Built-in redundancy and partitioning improve system availability while reducing deployment risks. Organizations reduce downtime with Oracle servers’ real-time monitoring, fault management architecture, and hot-swap components that require zero downtime for upgrades or repairs.

  • Lower cost and better value

    Customers reduce capital expenses and management costs by consolidating enterprise workloads on fewer systems with high-performance Oracle servers. Organizations’ total cost of ownership is lower because operating system and virtualization software are incorporated at no extra charge. Oracle Premier Support for systems includes Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center, simplifying administrative workloads and reducing expenses.

  • Silicon Secured Memory protect against common security attacks
  • Cryptographic accelerators in every core increase data security
  • 4X scalability with up to 256 cores and 8 TB of memory improves UNIX application consolidation efficiency

Midrange and scale-out UNIX servers

SPARC T8 and S7 servers reduce the cost of modernizing customer data centers with scale-out UNIX capabilities that include extensive software at no additional cost. Customers achieve exceptional enterprise application performance with built-in acceleration of Java applications and Oracle Database with a low TCO.

  • Record per-core critical Java performance runs customer applications faster
  • Up to 128 cores and 4 TB of memory in SPARC T8 systems for departmental consolidation of UNIX applications
  • SPARC S7 servers with 8 to 16 cores and up to 1 TB of memory support scale-out UNIX environments
  • Built-in, no-cost virtualization reduces customer UNIX consolidation costs
  • The Oracle Solaris Binary Guarantee ensures that current applications will run on future SPARC systems

Modular computing for demanding enterprise workloads

Scale on-premises UNIX infrastructure with Oracle Fujitsu SPARC servers’ modular architecture and run enterprise workloads with high performance, reliability, and availability.

  • High per-core performance increases application speed
  • Flexible 16X scaling meets virtually any level of demand
  • In-silicon acceleration for Oracle and non-Oracle databases
  • Capacity-on-demand scaling enables customers to activate individual cores as needed
  • Full redundancy and memory mirroring maximize reliability for business-critical applications
  • Up to 384 cores, 32 TB of memory, and thousands of VMs to efficiently consolidate UNIX applications
