Key Features
World’s Fastest Microprocessor

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.

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

Ensures 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.

Oracle 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.
