Leo Kilfoy, General Manager at MSC Software, spoke to us on video at Oracle OpenWorld 2015 about the "amazing results" his company is seeing in recent tests on the Oracle SPARC T7 processor. MSC is seeing SPARC T7 throughput peaking out at over a 2x improvement over some of the SPARC and Intel processors they have used in the past.
In recent tests with Oracle engineers, MSC Software was able to
perform a remarkable 60,000 simulations in a single day by consolidating
12 instances of SimManager onto a single core of the SPARC T7
processor, which was also supporting the Oracle Database. SimManager is
MSC Software’s engineering simulation technology, and is a very
database intensive application, which made these results even more
Watch this 5-minute video to learn more about how MSC Software found SPARC T7 to be extremely scalable and able to deliver better core-to-core throughput than an Intel Xeon X5 v3 server running a SimManager workload.
