Siemens Sees Dramatic Increase in Oracle's SPARC M7 Performance

To date, we have been executing 8,000 concurrent user benchmarks on the M7 in logical domains and are finding significant performance improvements, something that I haven't seen in the 10 or 12 years that I have been doing this. That's a really dramatic improvement for a single generation of platform, from T5 to M7, very impressive.

ivv Achieves Greater Security with Oracle's SPARC T7 Systems

Oracle Solaris 11 together with the SPARC systems that we use have a huge benefit in terms of encryption compared to other platforms that we host here at ivv. Oracle's integrated stack that we're using with the hardware and operating system being Solaris is a key factor for our service that we provide to our customers. SPARC together with Solaris bring us the security features that we definitely need.
