Advantages Of Oracle SPARC Servers Running Oracle Solaris Over Commodity Alternatives
As enterprises accrue exponentially growing amounts of information, data center reliability and efficiency have become more important than ever. Trends toward higher system utilization (through virtualization) show no sign of slowing, making it imperative that enterprises have the IT solutions to capitalize on these trends and ensure that efficient, secure virtualization can be accomplished. While x86 architectures have long been considered safe and cost-effective for virtualization, the performance and value of Oracle’s suite of SPARC processor-based servers, and the Oracle Solaris operating system and virtualization software should prompt enterprises to explore the Oracle stack. An investigation of Oracle stacks reveals them to be a unified data center solution engineered for efficiency and economy; a data center solution that reduces enterprise risk compared to x86 architectures.
