OpenWorld product releases: SuperCluster M7, M7, T7, Solaris 11.3, Solaris Cluster 4.3, etc.

I'm listening to the keynote speech @ OOW and reading up on reaction to our M7 / T7 / SuperCluster M7 launch.

Chuck's blog sums it up nicely. Well worth reading.

And the Infosys CEO just told the audience that they are running their Pinnacle banking software on an M7 SuperCluster and it's able to support 2 billion accounts.  2 billion.  On one SuperCluster. Pretty impressive.

The 20 world record performance benchmarks for M7/T7 are detailed on http://blogs.oracle.com/BestPerf

But it doesn't stop there.  For the first time, there's a "small config" option with M7 SuperCluster, so even if your company isn't big enough to need a half or full rack SuperCluster, there's now an entry level option at a lower price point than with T5-8 SuperCluster.

At roughly 2.2x price/performance of T5-8 SuperCluster.

My team has been working hard on the M7 SuperCluster installation and configuration tools and it's nice to finally be able to blog about it.  It's a phenomenal machine.  There's a queue in front of the M7 SuperCluster outside the keynote Hall D @ OOW from early morning to closing time each night.

Bring it on!
