Atos IT Outsourcing Services are optimized by Oracle SuperCluster

SOURCE: Oracle Hardware Blog

ATOS, a leading international IT services outsourcing provider, has implemented Oracle SuperCluster as a complete, high-availability, multi-tenancy infrastructure, increasing performance, increasing profits, and providing higher services levels to customers.
With Oracle SuperCluster support for multi-tenancy through virtualization, and Oracle Exadata Storage engineered and performance optimized, ATOS significantly increased batch processing with more than 10x more IOPS with Oracle Exadata Storage X3-2.

The optimized Oracle SuperCluster engineered system includes Oracle Exadata, Oracle Solaris 11, ran batch jobs 1.5x faster as compared to the former IBM AIX platform, which was consolidated to Oracle SuperCluster.

With Oracle SuperCluster ECC DRAM providing more memory per processor,  it is ideal for in-memory workloads and large vertically scaled multi-tenancy databases and applications including SAP.

Business benefits are significant, with profit margins are projected to increase through a significant reduction of software license costs by 1.5x due to the higher performance and capacity of Oracle SuperCluster. Rapid provisioning increased ATOS service levels, and requires fewer resources to manage incident services.  

As a single Oracle Engineered System, Oracle SuperCluster is intrinsically high-availability, tested and integrated by Oracle, and was rapidly deployed.

CRN Names Oracle SuperCluster One of 10 Coolest Servers Of 2013

CRN recently gathered and reviewed computer systems of all shapes and sizes, including microservers, rack-mount servers, integrated systems, and even mainframes. The result is their list of 10 of the coolest server introductions for 2013 -- which includes the latest Oracle SuperCluster. Oracle has lead the shift from stand-alone servers to converged (or engineered, in Oracle speak) systems, starting over five years ago with the Exadata Database Machine. That accelerated four years ago with the acquisition of Sun Microsystems, as well as the introduction of the Oracle SuperCluster over two years ago.

Oracle in September proved that development of its SPARC processors, and the engineered systems built on top of it, still have the power to push the performance edge when coupled with the right software.

Oracle's new SPARC M6-32 servers are based on the company's new 3.6GHz, 12-core SPARC M6 processors and include up to 32 TB of memory and up to 384 processor cores with one purpose: to run entire applications and databases in memory for optimum performance.

The servers can run entire business applications and databases in memory while supporting electrically isolated Dynamic Domains for improved security, service, and fault and resource isolation. Each Dynamic Domain supports up to 128 virtual machines.

In synthesis, the Oracle SuperCluster family is experiencing triple-digit growth, as customers are shifting their IT spend towards proven, high performance, integrated systems.
