Double Maximum Memory Capacity for SPARC T5-1B & T5-2 Servers

Oracle announces the availability and support of 32 GB DIMMs for the SPARC T5-2 and T5-1B servers thereby doubling the maximum memory capacity of these servers. The SPARC T5-2 server now supports a maximum of 1 TB; the SPARC T5-1B server module supports a maximum of 512 GB. Increased memory capacity is generally one of the most effective means to provide higher levels of consolidation and virtualization as well as improve overall performance.
