Oracle has just announced a new microprocessor, and the servers and engineered system that are powered by it. The SPARC M8 processor fits in the palm of your hand, but it contains the result of years of co-engineering of hardware and software together to run enterprise applications with unprecedented speed and security. The SPARC M8 chip contains 32 of today’s most powerful cores for running Oracle Database and Java applications. Benchmarking data shows that the performance of these cores reaches twice the performance of Intel’s x86 cores. This is the result of exhaustive work on designing smart execution units and threading architecture, and on balancing metrics such as core count, memory and IO bandwidth. It also required millions of hours in testing chip design and operating system software on real workloads for database and Java. Having faster cores means increasing application capability while keeping the core count and software investment under control. In other words, a boost

Modern technology initiatives are driving IT infrastructure in a new direction. Big data, social business, mobile applications, the cloud, and real-time analytics all require forward-thinking solutions and enough compute power to deliver the performance required in a rapidly evolving digital marketplace. Customers increasingly drive the speed of business, and organizations need to engage with customers on their terms. The need to manage sensitive information with high levels of security as well as capture, analyze, and act upon massive volumes of data every hour of every day has become critical. These challenges will dramatically change the way that IT systems are designed, funded, and run compared to the past few decades. Databases and Java have become the de facto language in which modern, cloud-ready applications are written. The massive explosion in the volume, variety, and velocity of data increases the need for secure and effective analytics so that organizations can make better

The Software in Silicon design of the SPARC M7 processor, and the recently announced SPARC S7 processor, implement memory access validation directly into the processor so that you can protect application data that resides in memory. It also includes on-chip Data Analytics Accelerator (DAX) engines that are specifically designed to accelerate analytic functions. The DAX engines make in-memory databases and applications run much faster, plus they significantly increase usable memory capacity by allowing compressed databases to be stored in memory without a performance penalty. The following Software in Silicon technologies are implemented in the SPARC S7 and M7 processors: Note: Security in Silicon encompasses both Silicon Secured Memory and cryptographic instruction acceleration, whereas SQL in Silicon includes In-Memory Query Acceleration and In-Line Decompression. Silicon Secured Memory is the first-ever end-to-end implementation of memory-access validation done in hardware. It

Business Enterprises today need to become more agile, meet new and increasing workload and security requirements, while reducing overall IT cost and risk. To meet these requirements many companies are turning to cloud computing. To remain competitive companies need to formulate a strategy that can easily move them from traditional on-premises IT to private or public clouds. A complete cloud strategy will likely include both private and public clouds because some applications and data might not be able to move to a public cloud. Moving to the cloud should not create information silos but should improve data sharing. Any cloud strategy should make sure that it is possible to integrate on-premises, private cloud and public cloud data and applications. Furthermore, any on-premises cloud deployments must be able to easily migrate to public cloud in the future.

With the growing size and importance of information stored in today’s databases, accessing and using the right information at the right time has become increasingly critical. Real-time access and analysis of operational data is key to making faster and better business decisions, providing enterprises with unique competitive advantages. Running analytics on operational data has been difficult because operational data is stored in row format, which is best for online transaction processing (OLTP) databases, while storing data in column format is much better for analytics processing. Therefore, companies normally have both an operational database with data in row format and a separate data warehouse with data in column format, which leads to reliance on “stale data” for business decisions. With Oracle’s Database In-Memory and Oracle servers based on the SPARC S7 and SPARC M7 processors companies can now store data in memory in both row and data formats, and run analytics on their operatio

This whitepaper explores the new SPARC S7 server features and then compares this offering to a similar x86 offering. The key characteristics of the SPARC S7 to be highlighted are: ? Designed for scale-out and cloud infrastructures ? SPARC S7 processor with greater core performance than the latest Intel Xeon E5 processor ? Software in Silicon which offers hardware-based features such as data acceleration and security The SPARC S7 is then compared to a similar x86 solution from three different perspectives, namely performance, risk and cost. Performance matters as business markets are driving IT to provide an environment that: ? Continuously provides real-time results. ? Processes more complex workload stacks. ? Optimizes usage of per-core software licenses. Risk matters today and into the foreseeable future, as challenges to secure systems and data are becoming more frequent and invasive from within and from outside.

"Oracle SPARC systems are engineered from the cloud and provide customers with effortless security, breakthrough efficiency, and straightforward simplicity. “Cloud is the way to go and we try to deliver that in the form of a platform that you can rely upon, that can scale, scale massively, scale reliably. The thing about SPARC in contract to other chips is the software that runs on it is highly reliable. You can heat it, you can beat it, you can give it a lot of load, but it doesn’t break, it just keeps running.”

"With the introduction of Oracle Database In-Memory and servers with the SPARC S7 and SPARC M7 processors Oracle delivers an architecture where analytics are run on live operational databases and not on data subsets in data warehouses. Decision-making is much faster and more accurate because the data is not a stale subset. And for those moving enterprise applications to the cloud, Real-time analytics of the SPARC S7 and SPARC M7 processors are available both in a private cloud on SPARC servers or in Oracle’s Public cloud in the SPARC cloud compute service. Moving to the Oracle Public Cloud does not compromise the benefits of SPARC solutions. Some examples of utilizing real time data for business decisions include: analysis of supply chain data for order fulfillment and supply optimization, analysis of customer purchase history for real time recommendations to customers using online purchasing systems, etc. "
