June 19, 2014 (Thu): Oracle Corporation, the world’s leading IT solutions and services provider, today launches its latest x86 Servers, the Sun Server X4-4 and Sun Server X4-8, which are being the first and only systems which dynamically adapt to workload specific requirements to maximize system utilization and improve efficiency.
With Oracle’s x86 elastic computing capabilities that achieved by engineering together the server design based on Intel® Xeon® Processor E7-8895 v2 with Oracle Solaris and Oracle Linux, businesses can configure these systems to dynamically optimize performance for a given workload.
Oracle’s Senior Vice President for Hardware Development, Ali Alasti said, “The Sun Server X4-4 and Sun Server x4-8 further Oracle’s goal of simplifying IT and significantly reducing operating expenses for our customers by delivering products that are best for Oracle Database In-Memory Option and business analytics.”
“Through close collaboration with Intel, we are the first to announce servers based on the new Intel® Xeon® E7-8895 v2 processors and the first with unique capabilities that allow customers to dynamically address different workloads in real time,” he added.
Intel Corporation’s VP and GM Datacenter Marketing Group, Shannon Poulin shared, “The Intel® Xeon® processor E7-8895 v2 combines the capabilities of the three highest performing processors in the Intel® Xeon® processor E7 v2 family into a single, adaptable processor. Oracle’s new servers can simplify the process of determining system configurations and purchasing while allowing dynamic repurposing of assets.”
The Sun Server X4-8 is ideal for running Oracle Database and, when combine with the Oracle Database In-Memory option, can speed up query processing. In addition, the Sun Server X4-4 is well suited for applications requiring large memory footprint virtual machines and is ideal for running real time analytics software.
The new servers optimize valuable data center space and are able to manage extreme requirements for mission-critical workloads. The Systems also offer excellent performance for virtualization and high density, clustered computing in enterprise cloud environments.
Oracle’s x86 servers, Oracle Solaris, Oracle Linux and Oracle VM are engineered, tested, deployed and supported together, offering ideal reliability, availability and serviceability. The Oracle’s x86 servers are key building blocks for Oracle Engineered Systems.
