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!

Record Performance and Seamless Scalability in Core Banking with Infosys Finacle and Oracle SuperCluster

New White Paper                               

Demonstrating extraordinary performance and scalability, an Infosys Finacle core banking solution version 10.2.13, running on an Oracle SuperCluster T5-8 system recently set a new global benchmark for the number of transactions processed across key banking functions. In a test that was audited and reviewed by a global business consulting and audit firm, the solution supported more than 1.9 billion bank accounts with near linear scalability. The test also saw Infosys Finacle processing 726 million effective transactions in four hours, or more than 50,000 average transactions per second. The press release was issued by Infosys a while back.

A new whitepaper describers the technical details behind the testing and results of this work and how it sets a new standard of scalability for core banking infrastructure.

Taking advantage of multiple cores

I just got a new computer with an i7 processor ( 4 cores x 2 threads per core). I am now far more aware of the dismal state of user software that is not multi-threaded. Many tasks that I expected to run much faster, are just as slow since they are not able to take advantage of the extra cores.[Read More]
