Oracle has announced its SPARC T4 servers featuring Oracle Solaris power mission-critical workloads in over 3 000 enterprises worldwide, nearly four times the number announced one year ago. 
Oracle’s SPARC T4 servers have been adopted globally across all major industries, including financial services, telecommunications, public sector and retail, delivering double-digit revenue growth in Q2FY13.
Oracle’s SPARC T4 servers deliver superior performance versus comparable servers with 18 world records to date on a wide range of industry standard benchmarks and application workloads, including Oracle Customer Relationship Management and the Oracle E-Business Suite.
Unlike competitive servers, SPARC T4 servers come with built-in OS, virtualisation and system management featuring Oracle Solaris, Oracle VM Server for SPARC, and Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center 12c, enabling customers to simplify cloud deployments, and automate and optimise their data centres at no additional cost.
Oracle Solaris 11.1 on SPARC T4 gives customers the best platform to deploy Oracle software by delivering unique database and Java features only available on Oracle Solaris systems.
Demonstrating Oracle systems run Oracle software best, the Oracle Optimised Solution for JD Edwards EnterpriseOne, which uses the SPARC T4-1 server, delivers three times faster interactive queries than the IBM Power 720 with only one-third the processor utilisation.
With over 25 years of enterprise reliability and scale, SPARC servers and Oracle Solaris continue to power the most critical systems in enterprises delivering excellent business results for mission critical workloads, including the world’s number one database and the leading Java EE platform.
