December 3, 2010 – Oracle unveiled a SPARC Solaris-based model of its Exalogic Elastic Cloud System and new editions of its SPARC servers.

Use with multi-threaded enterprise applications over large-scale deployments is the prime capability of running the new Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud T3-1B with Solaris, the company stated in a news release.
“With the SPARC Solaris model of Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud, customers who have standardized on SPARC Solaris can easily obtain the extreme benefits of Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud and consolidate their data center, while leveraging their existing investment and skills,” said Hasan Rizvi, Oracle Fusion Middleware senior vice president.

Along with the new cloud hardware, Oracle launched updates to its SPARC Supercluster database systems.
Available in 2011, the Supercluster will be available in T3-2, T3-4 and M5000-based configurations, and all three will include SPARC T3 or M5000 servers, Sun ZFS Storage 7420 servers, and Sun Network ZFS InfiniBand Gateway Switches, the company stated. The new infrastructure solutions are connected to releases from Sun Microsystems, which Oracle acquired in 2009.

Oracle also touted the speed and processing of the Superclusters compared against competitor IBM. In a news release, Oracle CEO Larry Ellison said the updated SPARC servers and other recent company releases will run Oracle databases “faster than anything ever before.”
