  • SPARC Server Customers “Each successive SPARC server generation delivers even greater value to our organization. With SPARC T4-1B we improved performance and density per blade for approximately the same cost. We’ve been able to achieve a three-to- one server consolidation, which has eased our management burden and reduced energy costs by the same ratio.” – Burt Gedney, Principal Systems Engineer, SirsiDynix “Our testing of the ING application stack on Oracle‘s SPARC T4 servers running Oracle Solaris proves Oracle’s Sun servers deliver quality, predictability and complete backwards compatibility while greatly enhancing system performance.” “SPARC T-Series of servers and processors underpin OTP’s ability to provide some of the most advanced banking solutions in the Hungarian market and a rich user experience for our customers.” – Géza Boros, Head of IT Development, OTP Bank Plc “SAS® Business Analytics enables faster, more accurate data-driven decisions. Whether it is risk analysis, fraud detection or complex optimization mathematics, implementing SAS Business Analytics on SPARC T4 solves critical business issues in transformational ways. SPARC has long been a proven platform for SAS applications; T4 delivers SPARC performance at its best.” Paul Kent, SAS Vice President of Platform Research and Development “With Oracle’s SPARC Enterprise M9000, we’ve achieved the highest possible availability, enabling us to provide better services to our clients.” Salvador Sierra Hernández, Director of Technical Support15 Copyright © 2012, Oracle and/or its affiliates.

  • Dynamic Threading  Core resources are shared between the active threads – Load-buffers, store-buffers, pick-queue, working-register-file, reorder-buffer, etc.  Resources can be statically or dynamically allocated  Dynamic allocation enables higher throughput by seamlessly adjusting resourcing based upon thread behavior – Applications scale better – Increased throughput especially on heterogeneous workloads  Thread hog: If a thread occupies a resource, it must release the resource in a timely fashion – If not, thread is considered a “hog” and hardware limits the resources available to it – High and low watermarks for various core resources – High watermark reached by allocation, low watermark by de-allocation – Upon reaching high watermark, thread resource allocation stalls until low watermark reached70 Copyright © 2012, Oracle and/or its affiliates.
