Sinosure Core Business System Excels on Oracle SPARC T5 and Solaris

China Export & Credit Insurance Corporation (SINOSURE) is China's only policy-oriented insurance company specializing in export credit insurance. It began operations on December 18, 2001. Since then SINOSURE has formed a nationwide service network. 

SINOSURE Core Business System 6.0 is the main platform for insurance product operation & risk control, covering the execution & management of all of the insurance business.

Recently Oracle and SINOSURE worked together to test and certify SINOSURE Core Business System 6.0 on Oracle Solaris 11 and SPARC T5. This application is based on Oracle Weblogic 12c, JVM HotSpot JDK7 and Oracle Database 11gR2.  Oracle Solaris Zones, the built-in, no-cost, no-overhead virtualization technology in Solaris, was used to consolidate the application, middelware and database on the same SPARC T5 server. Oracle Solaris delivers unique innovation and optimization for Oracle database and middleware that helped increase the application performance.

The tests demonstrated that SINOSURE Core Business System6.0 runs extremely well on the Oracle SPARC T5 server.  The speed to start-up was much faster than any previous deployment and the combined solution proved to be very stable and fast!
