Oracle SUN SPARC Server T8-2 and Server accessories

Oracle's SPARC T8-2 server is a resilient, two-processor system that enables organizations to respond to IT demands with extreme security and performance, at a lower cost compared to alternatives. It is ideal for a wide range of enterprise-class workloads, including databases, applications, Java, and middleware, especially in a cloud environment. This system is based on the SPARC M8 processor, using the revolutionary Software in Silicon technology from Oracle.

Oracle's SPARC servers are coengineered with Oracle software for the best performance, efficiency, and security when running enterprise applications, OLTP, and analytics. With up to 2x better performance than competitor products, Oracle’s SPARC servers allow IT organizations to make the most of their investment in Java applications and database software.

    product description

    Software in Silicon technology is a breakthrough in microprocessor and server design, enabling databases and applications to run faster and with unprecedented security and reliability. Now in its second generation, this innovative Software in Silicon design includes Data Analytics Accelerator (DAX) engines designed directly into the SPARC M8 processor silicon to handle SQL primitives, such as those used by Oracle Database In-Memory in Oracle Database 12c. The DAX units can also be leveraged by Java applications operating on streams of data through the use of open APIs. The accelerators operate on data at full memory speeds, taking advantage of the very high memory bandwidth of the processor. This produces extreme acceleration of in-memory queries and analytics operations while processor cores are freed up to do other useful work. In addition, the ability of the DAX units to handle compressed data on the fly means that larger databases can be kept in memory, or that less server memory needs to be configured fr a given database size. Lastly, the SPARC M8 processor introduces Oracle Numbers units, which greatly accelerate Oracle Database operations involving floating point data. Consider the result: you can run fast in-memory analytics on your database, using much less memory than the size of your data, without significantly increasing server utilization rates or affecting your OLTP operations.
    The Silicon Secured Memory feature of the SPARC M8 processor provides the capability of detecting and preventing invalid operations on application data, through hardware monitoring of software access to memory. This can stop malware from exploiting software vulnerabilities, such as buffer overflows. The hardware approach of Silicon Secured Memory is much faster than traditional software-based detection tools, meaning that security checks can be done in production without significant impact to performance. In addition, each processor core contains the fastest cryptographic acceleration in the industry, allowing IT organizations to deliver end-to-end data encryption and secure transactions with near-zero performance impact. In summary: you can easily activate data protection and encryption security, by default, without additional hardware investment.
