Oracle: Its Fastest Engineered System
Oracle in June unveiled the company's Oracle SuperCluster T5-8 engineered system, part of the company's series of engineered solutions that combine its server hardware with software or middleware as tightly integrated appliance-like offerings.
Oracle SuperCluster T5-8 combines the company's SPARC T5-8 servers and the Oracle Exadata Storage Server hardware with Oracle database, middleware and systems software.
As an integrated system, Oracle claims the Oracle SuperCluster T5-8 offers up to 10 times faster database and application performance and 32 times faster deployment of database cloud services than traditional solutions that are integrated in the field. They also offer 2.5 times better performance than the previous-generation SuperCluster, Oracle said.
