Oracle's SPARC T4, 007 Style

The names 4, T4, and this power house travels hand in hand with its good friend SPARC. About 6 years ago on-chip encryption acceleration was first shipped in a commercial system, the SPARC T1. Today, thanks to Oracle SPARC innovative leadership in on-chip encryption acceleration, complex cryptographic computations was born and has since rapidly evolved. Customers can now have security with performance because we my friend, are in the Age of Big Data.

If you need some high speed action in your life, listen here. The SPARC T4 systems offer customers much more value for applications than just increased performance through its cross sell opportunity. This is done by enabling partners to integrate your own applications to Oracle’s SPARC T4 Servers for Cloud deployments, and providing direct business benefits that supersedes the commodity approach to data center computing such as security, performance and optimization.

As companies continue down this complex path of big data, eCommerce, and mobility, the need to provide better and more in-depth security is more prominent than ever. Oracle’s SPARC T4 processor allows customers to deliver the highest levels of application security, as well as deliver the necessary level performance without added cost, and complexity.

Anchors Away

Last Friday marked Opening Day in the Bay, a fun San Francisco tradition which celebrates the official opening day of the Northern Californian sailing season. Just as captains will spend the next few months sailing around the bay for a win; Oracle partners have already been winning by driving customer success with Oracle’s SPARC T4 Servers and Oracle Solaris 11. No amount of tail wind could slow down these mates because nearly 500 partners have already sold Oracle’s SPARC T4 Servers with Oracle Solaris 11… And the boat isn’t docking anytime soon!

Thanks to this sea of server opportunities, Oracle partners have been moving quickly, at well over 50 knots of speed, so that their customers can benefit from the increased performance needed to run their most demanding enterprise applications in private, hybrid or public clouds. Starboard ahead!

But don’t jump ship for one of these servers just yet, OPN also has two exciting Specializations to consider. Instead, hop on board and watch as Joel Borellis, GVP of Oracle's Worldwide Alliances and Channels, highlights the OPN Specializations for both SPARC T4 and Oracle Solaris 11 and takes a deeper dive into Oracle’s SPARC T4 enterprise servers.

Bon Voyage,
