Set higher standards for your mission-critical workloads. Oracle SuperCluster delivers an end-to-end solution for applications and databases that provides unbeatable security, availability, and scalability.
Oracle SuperCluster combines the power of Oracle Exadata storage cells with an integrated application tier to maximize the performance of Oracle Database and all applications that run on it. It’s a secure, enterprise cloud infrastructure with impressive scalability that’s ideal for massive server consolidation and TCO savings.
and 16 TB of memory per rack for database and application processing
Up to 11 Oracle Exadata Storage Servers per rack
Integrated Oracle ZFS application storage including 160 TB of storage capacity
40 Gb/sec (QDR) InfiniBand Network
Built-in, near-zero-overhead virtualization using Oracle VM Server for SPARC and Oracle Solaris Zones
Support for Oracle Solaris 11 and Oracle Solaris 10
Up to 4 x 32-core SPARC M8 processors (4.1 GHz)
Up to 64 x 64 GB of memory
Up to 4 x dual-port QDR InfiniBand adapters
Up to 4 x quad-port 10 GbE HCA with pluggable transceivers (2 port) and optical cables
Up to 4 x GbE adapters
Preconfigured, pretested system optimized for all database software and applications
Oracle’s SPARC M8 maximizes performance for general-purpose computing and integrates additional performance enhancements for cryptographic acceleration and Oracle Database 12c directly into the processor design. In-line decompression allows Oracle Database 12c to store databases many times larger than the physical memory, while in-memory query acceleration drives simultaneous real-time analytics and transaction processing performance up to 9x better than x86 or IBM Power systems.Silicon Secured Memory
Protects data in memory from unauthorized access. Cryptographic acceleration provides near-zero-overhead end-to-end data encryption with no performance compromise.Read-Only Virtual Machines
Ensure that application administrators and compromised applications are unable to accidently alter the configuration of virtual machines in ways that would expose systems to attack. End-to-end audit trails provide a holistic view of the activity within your infrastructure.Engineered for Oracle Database
Part of an entire line of coengineered technologies, Oracle SuperCluster is optimized to maximize Oracle Database and application performance compared to generic, general-purpose systems.Integrated Oracle Exadata Storage Server
Leverage Oracle Exadata’s smart scan technology, smart flash cache, and hybrid columnar compression in one integrated system. Co-engineered with Oracle Database to deliver the optimal balance of scalability, transaction processing, and batch performance for all Oracle Database workloads.Oracle’s InfiniBand Fabric
This low-latency, high throughput I/O fabric ties all of Oracle SuperCluster’s system components together, making it possible to horizontally scale the entire system.
