Announcement: New Single Processor Configuration for SPARC T5-2

SPARC Portfolio Update for T5 and T4 Servers

Since introduction last year, Oracle's T5 servers have topped performance metrics in virtually all enterprise workloads. The SPARC T5 processor retains the title of world's fastest microprocessor, and the SPARC T5-2 server has just shattered another world record (see the latest SPECjEnterprise2010 benchmark result). To make it easier for customers to adopt our T5 technology, Oracle announces a new configuration for the SPARC T5-2 server with one SPARC T5 processor, providing a new entry point to the T5 line of rackmount servers.

In addition, Oracle announces the End-of-Life (EOL) of the SPARC T4-4, T4-2 and T4-1B servers along with all unique ATO and Xoption parts. Find more information in the Product Bulletins on Oracle HW TRC:
