T-Series & Solaris

According to IDC, Oracle's entry-level and midrange SPARC servers lead the market in unit volume market share for Unix servers – beating both HP and IBM. The new SPARC T4 servers continue the momentum, helping our partners build and deliver infrastructures that are high-performance, secure, available, and highly scalable. While the SPARC T3 servers delivered exceptional price/performance for highly-threaded applications, the new SPARC T4 processor excels at both highly-threaded and mission-critical single threaded workloads. The SPARC T4 servers, with Oracle Solaris and Oracle VM Server for SPARC, enables consolidation of multiple application tiers onto a single server, helping customers reduce system complexity and improve utilization.
