Oracle Unveils New Entry-Level Big Memory Machines

Oracle_SuperCluster_MS-32Oracle has unveiled the SPARC M6-32 server and SuperCluster M6-32 engineered system, based on new 3.6 GHz, 12-core SPARC M6 processors.

John Fowler (Executive vice president, Systems, Oracle):  With our big memory machines you can run huge databases and applications in memory to accelerate performance 10 or 20 times, and experience mainframe-like reliability without paying the high premiums built into other vendor’s high-end systems.

Oracle SuperCluster M6-32 running Oracle Solaris has 32 TB of main memory. It can run entire business applications and databases in memory and can deliver up to 7x better database performance when using in-memory computing, compared to standard practices, according to Oracle.

Powered by the new SPARC M6 processors, the SPARC M6-32 server offers twice the throughput of its predecessor and up to 32 terabytes of memory for running databases and applications completely in-memory, says Oracle. The SPARC M6-32 server also supports electrically isolated Dynamic Domains, and allows the creation of up to 128 virtual machines per Dynamic Domain.
