Announcing Oracle VM Server for SPARC 2.2 Release

Honglin Su
Sr. Director of Product Management

We are excited to announce Oracle VM Server for SPARC 2.2, the latest release of Oracle’s
enterprise-class server virtualization solution. The
new release delivers significant enhancements that improve workload
agility and performance, maximize the availability of business-critical
applications, and increase flexibility in provisioning and deployment.
Oracle VM Server for
SPARC takes advantage of the massive thread scale offered by SPARC
servers and the Oracle Solaris operating system.

See the key features and benefits delivered in Oracle VM Server for SPARC 2.2:

  • Secure live migration is now available across different generations of SPARC T-Series servers for flexibility
    of workload deployment and migration. Customers continue to benefit
    from their existing investment as they add SPARC T4 servers into the
    environment for increased capacity with minimal downtime or disruption to
    their operation. Secure live
    migrations are as simple as point and click using Oracle Enterprise
    Manager Ops Center
    ’s console. Read more about Cross-CPU Secure Live Migration here and watch a video demo.
  • Single-Root
    I/O Virtualization (SR-IOV) delivers superior I/O throughput to
    guest domains that have SR-IOV on Oracle's SPARC T4 and SPARC T3 platforms. SR-IOV enables the efficient sharing of PCIe
    network devices among I/O domains so application workloads can achieve native
    I/O performance. Read more about SR-IOV feature and SR-IOV Virtual Function (VF).

  • Integrated optimization with SPARC T-Series servers, especially for SPARC T4 and SPARC SuperCluster T4-4, provides administrators with fine-grained control of
    server resources and the ability to tailor CPU performance across business-critical enterprise workloads
    for better throughput. Read more about whole core allocation enhancements here.
