SAS and Oracle - Partnering Innovation on Big Data and Cloud

Oracle was a Platinum sponsor of the 39th SAS Global Forum, which took place at the Gaylord Convention Center, Washington DC on March 23-26th with a record attendance of over 4,500 attendees. SAS Global Forum is the annual gathering of SAS professionals, and has been happening every year since 1976. Here is the Opening Keynote by CEO Jim Goodnight  —good overview in Dr. Goodnight’s 10-minute opening. The theme of this year's conference was celebrating the “potential of one, power of all” around the potential to turn a single data discovery into a better way of doing business.

Oracle’s Platinum sponsorship centered around the partnership with SAS to deliver the convergence of In-Memory and In-Database cloud platforms, for which Oracle’s Engineered Systems are providing unprecedented performance and scalability in SAS environments. Oracle had 2 main conference presentations, 2 SAS partner showcase opportunities and booth tech talks around this theme. David Lawler, Oracle SVP Product Management and Strategy, and Paul Kent, SAS VP Big Data, presented on SAS and Oracle: Big Data and Cloud – Partnering Innovation Targets the Third Platform. Paul and David shared their strategic insight into how SAS High-Performance Analytics solutions are tackling today’s big data challenges and requisite union to “data-optimized cloud platforms”.

The benefits of the collaborative effort between SAS and Oracle enable joint customers to realize tangible value by analyzing all their data, quickly, safely and with the necessary agility to reduce time to insight. As evidence of the SAS and Oracle partnership producing results for customers, a large banking institution in Latin America presented a solution of a global SAS deployment on Oracle SPARC M5 servers. This solution provided the bank impressive scalability for Analytics with 5,000 SAS users consolidating over 50 Oracle Databases onto the same system with a 70% reduction in processors and a 30% performance improvement.

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?

Misys Kondor+ runs best on SPARC T5

Misys is a leading financial software vendor, providing the broadest portfolio of banking, treasury, trading and risk solutions available on the market. At ISV Engineering, we have a long-standing collaboration with the Kondor+ product line, that came from the Turaz acquisition (formerly part of Thomson Reuters) and now part of the Misys Treasury & Capital Markets (TCM) portfolio. Jean-Marc Jacquot, Senior Technical Consultant at Misys TCM, was recently interviewed by ITplace.TV (in French language) about a recent IT redesign of the Kondor+ installed base at a major French financial institution.

The customer was running various releases of Kondor+ over a wide range of SPARC machines, from Sun V240 to M4000. The IT project aimed at rationalizing these deployments for better ROI, SLA and raw performance —to meet the new system requirements of the latest Kondor+ release. In the short list, SPARC & Solaris beat x86 & Linux on …

IPgallery banks on Solaris SPARC

IPgallery is a global supplier of converged legacy and Next Generation Networks (NGN) products and solutions, including: core network components and cloud-based Value Added Services (VAS) for voice, video and data sessions.

IPgallery enables network operators and service providers to offer advanced converged voice, chat, video/content services and rich unified social communications in a combined legacy (fixed/mobile), Over-the-Top (OTT) and Social Community (SC) environments for home and business customers. Technically speaking, this offer is a scalable and robust telco solution enabling operators to offer new services while controlling operating expenses (OPEX).

In its solutions, IPgallery leverages the following Oracle components: Oracle Solaris, Netra T4 and SPARC T4 in order to provide a competitive and scalable solution without the price tag often associated with high-end systems.

"Due to the huge improvements in performance and capacity using the T4-1 architecture, IPgallery has engineered the solution with less hardware.  This means instead of deploying the solution on six T2-based machines, we will deploy on 2 redundant machines while utilizing Oracle Solaris Zones and Oracle VM for higher availability and virtualization"

Shimon Lichter, VP R&D, IPgallery
