You're invited : Solaris 11.2 Launch, Apr 29th, NYC

Please join Mark Hurd, John Fowler and Markus Flierl for the global launch of Oracle Solaris 11.2 on April 29, 2014 in New York City. Oracle Solaris 11.2 adds new capabilities in advanced virtualization, software-defined networking (SDN) and OpenStack support to the enterprise-grade Solaris operating system already known for its unmatched scalability, reliability and security.

Thanks to the robust and guaranteed Solaris Binary Compatibility, our ISV partners and their customers have been able over the years to right away enjoy the new run-time features that each release of Solaris brings to market. Which Solaris 11.2 feature will be the killer feature that most customers will quickly adopt? Time will tell but I have my own idea...

Space at this exclusive event is limited, register today!

Oracle DB 12c runs best on Sparc

Oracle's vision of Engineered Systems is transforming into reality with every new product that Oracle is launching. Oracle Database 12c, which was launched in 2013, is an example on how Oracle software is optimized for Oracle Solaris SPARC. Oracle Database 12c is co-engineered with Solaris engineering team and Oracle’s world record SPARC T5 servers have best performance and maximum ROI.

Independent Software Vendors (ISV) who are developing applications using both Oracle DB 12c and Solaris are taking advantage of one core technology, one operating system, one virtualization tool for all the range of SPARC servers. An ISV application can boost its performance, flexibility and security just by using SPARC high numbers of cores and big memory, combined Oracle 12c/Solaris/SPARC multi-tenancy,  zones and LDoms light-weight virtualization technologies, SPARC and Solaris build-in encryption, etc.

Let’s take a look at how all this is translated into technical features. What makes Solaris and SPARC servers the best infrastructure for Oracle 12c enterprise databases?

Solaris Studio 12.4 Beta is live

The Oracle Solaris Studio 12.4 Beta release is out. Oracle Solaris Studio is a suite of compilers and code analysis tools that assist developers in creating highly optimized, robust, and secure applications for the Oracle Solaris and Linux Operating Systems. These tools help application developers achieve the best performance on Oracle's newest T-series and M-series SPARC servers, Fujitsu's M10 servers, and Intel-based servers. 

New features and enhancements in Oracle Solaris Studio 12.4 include:

  • New C++ compiler and dbx debugger that support the C++ 2011 language standard
  • A completely redesigned Performance Analyzer UI that simplifies identification of key performance issues, plus remote data analysis, cross-architecture support, comparison of results, and improved kernel profiling
  • Code Analyzer for improving your application with static source-code checking, run-time memory access checking (including memory leaks), and identification of un-exercised code. Graphical user interface and command-line provide robust interfaces for reviewing results and historical analysis of data
  • Compiler and library optimizations for Oracle's SPARC T5, M5, M6, Fujitsu's M10, and Intel's Ivy Bridge and Haswell servers
  • Support for new OpenMP 4.0 standard including Region Cancellation, Thread Affinity, Tasking Extensions and Sequentially Consistent Atomics
  • Integrated Development Environment (IDE) that includes C++ 2011 support, improved response time, and a smaller memory footprint to efficiently handle very large source repositories.
