What happens when software moves into silicon?

On September 30, 2014 Oracle announced Oracle Software in Silicon Cloud which provides early access to revolutionary Software in Silicon technology that dramatically improves reliability and security, and accelerates application performance.

Oracle Software in Silicon Cloud provides developers a ready-to-run virtual machine environment to install, test, and improve their code in a robust and secure cloud platform powered by the revolutionary Software in Silicon technology in Oracle’s forthcoming SPARC M7 processor running Oracle Solaris.

Oracle Software in Silicon Cloud is available today and was introduced at Oracle OpenWorld by John Fowler in his keynote speech today. It is also featured in DEMOgrounds booth SC-170 in Moscone South.

“Oracle’s Software in Silicon technology in the SPARC M7 processor is the result of close co-engineering between our software and microprocessor teams and the benefits it will bring to customers are dramatic,” said John Fowler, executive vice president, Systems, Oracle. “With the Software in Silicon Cloud, developers can take advantage of this revolutionary technology, bulletproof their code, and develop and run databases and applications faster.”

One example of the great features of the SPARC M7 Software in Silicon technology is in-memory query acceleration of the Oracle Database. Read this blog to learn more.

What happens when software moves to silicon?

Find out by testing your applications on the Oracle Software in Silicon Cloud which provides developers a secure environment to test and improve their software and exploit the unique advantages of Oracle’s Software in Silicon technology.
