The write up on the system notes that it "packs enough memory and CPU power to deliver up to four times higher performance per watt at about one-fifth of competitive servers." With up to 256 threads and 512 GB of memory in just 4 RU, the SPARC Enterprise T5440 server is an ideal platform for virtualization and consolidation and ably handles traditional midrange apps like Oracle databases, Siebel CRM and SAP ERP.
The SPARC Enterprise T5440 server has set seven world records on key enterprise and HPC benchmarks, including a world record on Oracle's Siebel CRM 8.0 PSPP benchmark. Supporting 14,000 concurrent Siebel CRM users, the T5440 server delivers not only serious compute density, but energy savings as well, consuming only 1,276 watts
during the benchmark. More information on Siebel CRM on the T5440 is available here.
