Oracle Announces New, Highly Optimized x86 Servers
Posted on 12-Jun-2014 14:30. | Tags Filed under: News.



Oracle is announcing the latest in its line of workload-specific, enterprise-class servers, the Sun Server X4-4 and Sun Server X4-8. Co-engineered with Oracle software, these servers are the first to include elastic computing features, maximizing performance by adapting to different workload demands in real time.

The Sun Server X4-4 is designed specifically for business intelligence and analytics and server consolidation, while the Sun Server X4-8 is the best x86 platform for Oracle Database In-Memory option and scale-up applications. Oracle’s x86 servers are key building blocks for Oracle Engineered Systems.

The company says its Sun Server X4-4 and Sun Server X4-8 are the first and only systems to offer unique elastic computing features in the hardware, which dynamically adapts to workload specific requirements to maximize system utilization and improve efficiency.

With Oracle’s x86 elastic computing capabilities -- achieved by engineering together the server design based on Intel Xeon Processor E7-8895 v2 with Oracle Solaris and Oracle Linux -- customers can configure these systems to dynamically optimize for core count or core performance to support optimal performance for a given workload.

The Sun Server X4-8 is ideal for running Oracle Database and, when combined with the Oracle Database In-Memory option, can speed up query processing by allowing even more of the database to be memory-optimized.

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 memory and I/O requirements for mission-critical workloads. The systems also offer excellent performance for virtualization and high density, clustered computing in enterprise cloud environments.
