Announcing Oracle VM Server for SPARC 2.2 Release

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 T-Series 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.

Please review the Oracle VM Server for SPARC 2.2 Documentation for specific details of required and minimum software and supported platforms. Visit the download page for instructions to download the required software.
