The ’Software In Silicon’ Edge

—By Chris Murphy, Director of Cloud Content at Oracle


In the cloud era, why does Oracle still pour so much talent and money into engineering its own microprocessors? “Our religion here is fairly straightforward: we want to build the best hardware products in the world,” said John Fowler, Oracle executive vice president of systems, at Oracle OpenWorld Latin America last week. Building the best means eliminating any barriers to performance and cost-effectiveness. Increasingly, many problems related to security, efficiency, and simplicity must be solved at the “software in silicon” level, Fowler explains in this article

Oracle last week announced its new SPARC S7 processor, designed to bring Oracle’s most powerful microprocessor innovations to smaller, scale-out workloads at commodity prices. Companies can tap the SPARC S7’s innovations in three ways: as a cloud service running in Oracle’s data center; as an engineered system that bundles hardware, software, and networking (SPARC MiniCluster S7-2); and as SPARC S7-based servers. Read more on how SPARC S7 technology helps companies with both cloud and on-premises workloads.
