Oracle is all set to launch its enterprise-class servers – Sun Server X4-4 and Sun Server X4-8, the first ever servers to include elastic computing features.
In a statement Oracle said that Sun Server X4-4 is designed specifically for business intelligence and analytics, while Sun Server X4-8 is the x86platform for Oracle Database In-Memory option and scale-up application.
Oracle said that these are the first and only systems to offer unique elastic computing features in the hardware, which dynamically adapts to workload specific requirements to maximize system utilization and improve efficiency.
“Through close collaboration with Intel, we are the first to announce servers based on the new Intel® Xeon® E7-8895 v2 processors and the first with unique capabilities that allow customers to dynamically address different workloads in real time,” said Ali Alasti, senior vice president, Hardware Development, Oracle.
The Sun Server X4-4 is well suited for applications requiring large memory footprint virtual machines and is ideal for running real time analytics software.
The new servers optimize valuable data center space and are able to manage extreme memory and I/O requirements for mission-critical workloads. The systems also offer excellent performance for virtualization and high density, clustered computing in enterprise cloud environments, Oracle said.
