New SuperCluster M7 for SAP Whitepaper Available

This new whitepaper describes the Oracle SuperCluster M7 technology in detail and how it helps boost SAP performance.

SAP landscapes are complex, with many layers of infrastructure benefiting from consolidation to reduce total cost of ownership and improve SAP application performance, manageability and availability. Traditional SAP landscapes evolve to complex, segregated infrastructures for production, development, and quality assurance.

Oracle SuperCluster provides a simplified, consolidated cloud infrastructure for SAP landscapes as an architectural foundation. Oracle SuperCluster combines compute for SAP applications, middleware and Oracle database in a single systems, with networking and storage hardware, virtualization, operating system and management software in a complete, high performance infrastructure that is extremely secure, easy to deploy, manage and maintain.  For many customers, particularly those already running their SAP deployments on UNIX systems from IBM and HP, SuperCluster can be the  platform of choice.

This whitepaper is available for Exadata Community members in the community workspace.

ESG report: Redefining Database Performance with SPARC M7

Mike Leone, ESG Lab Analyst, documents the results of recent testing of the Oracle SPARC M7 processor with a focus on in-memory database performance for the real-time enterprise.

Leveraging new advanced features like columnar compression and on-chip in-memory query acceleration, ESG Lab compared the Oracle Database In-Memory option performance of a SPARC T7 system with a SPARC M7 processor to an x86-based system.

  • The SPARC system was 5.4x faster than the x86-based system.
  • Another metric of measurement, queries per minute, yielded the same 5.4x speed up with the SPARC system when compared with the x86 server. On a per chip level, this performance advantage improves even further to 10.8x for the SPARC system.
  • With memory bandwidth and achievable throughput being key to in-memory performance, the SPARC system scanned over 7x faster than the x86 system.”

Taneja Group report: ZDLRA Light-Years Ahead

A new research report on the Oracle Recovery Appliance from influencers at the Taneja Group highlights how the product is "light-years ahead of alternatives such as EMC Data Domain appliances and NetApp filers." 

Key highlights from this report include:

  • Oracle has turned the idea of backups on its head. Instead of relying on “nightly full backups,” only incremental backups ever need be taken—an 'incremental forever' approach. This eliminates several major pain points for companies of all sizes. The big question of being able to recover a good copy of the database from last week or yesterday is no longer an issue.”
  • “Recovery Appliance offloads backup processes from production database servers which can increase performance in Oracle environments. Adopting this new backup and recovery solution will actually give CPU cycles back to the business.”
  • “Bottom line—if finally eliminating the pain of outdated full backup approaches or the increasing risk of data loss at scale doesn’t move you, the many benefits in operational ease and manageability shown in this report are significant enough to easily justify the Recovery Appliance’s acquisition and deployment by Oracle Database owners. There are simply no more excuses for not fully protecting your critical Oracle Database assets as they should be protected.”
