Welcome and thanks for coming today. In this session we will show how Oracle’s new SPARC servers provide the highest levels of application performance and reliability, at the lowest Total Cost of ownership. Even lower than x86 servers running RedHat Linux And Vmware, and dramatically lower than HP or IBM.
Slide Transition: Managing legacy,complex I.T. environments consumes resources that otherwise could be used to exploit new technology trends. All of you are aware of the growing costs of increased IT complexity and the impact it has on IT. More time and money spent on datacenter operations means less resource to innovate and respond to the massive shifts in IT that we are seeing.
Slide Transition: Oracle’s strategy is to SIMPLIFY I.T. so customers can use technology for business innovation, not just for business as usual.
Slide Transition: Oracle is unique in the industry in that we have the broadest portfolio of systems and software, and are investing heavily the integration and optimization of systems that run Oracle Software better than any other platform.The combination of our industry leading server performance, extreme low latency network fabric, and our extreme performance storage provides unmatched Database, Middleware, and Application performanceAND value, through lower cost of ownership, faster time to production, and enterprise class reliability and security. All this leads to simpler, more efficient, more reliable service delivery.
Slide Transition: The way Oracle Simplifies IT is through Engineering HW and SW to work together. When we say that Oracle hardware and software is engineered to work together, this refers to our unique ability to offer customers a complete hardware and software stack, from applications through middleware and databases, and all the way down into servers and storage.Integration Inside Each Layer Within each layer of the Oracle technology stack, all components are engineered to work together—either individually or as part of a product family or suite. Oracle tests everything within the layer, including interactions between the applications, middleware, and database. For example, thousands of developers spent millions of hours developing code, stress testing, cluster testing, and regression testing all the components in Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g. This level of investment ensures that all Oracle products—in every product family and every product suite—can interoperate with each another.Integration Between LayersOracle integrates all layers of the technology stack—from the applications down to servers and storage. Every layer is tested and certified to work with every other layer: applications are tested with middleware, middleware is tested with databases, and databases are tested with servers and storage. Oracle certifies the complete stack, so customers know which versions of software are designed to work together.For example, every major application product line that Oracle delivers—including Oracle E-Business Suite, PeopleSoft, JD Edwards EnterpriseOne, JD Edwards World, Siebel CRM, and Oracle Fusion Applications—is certified with Oracle Fusion Middleware. Customers running other Oracle Applications can also take advantage of Oracle’s common set of technologies (such as business intelligence, security and identity management, and the latest user experience tools) through Oracle Fusion Middleware. Oracle packages these technologies into standardized solutions that customers can deploy and upgrade together. Because Oracle owns the entire technology stack, and because Oracle engineering teams work together closely, Oracle can optimize the entire stack’s best-of-breed components for performance, scalability, security, business intelligence and manageability, and can share these technology advances throughout the stack.Integration With Other SystemsAlthough you get the greatest benefit from running a technology stack that uses Oracle products for all the layers, most Oracle customers have heterogeneous environments that include legacy and third party products. No problem.Each layer in the Oracle stack—and each product within each layer—is engineered according to open industry standards, so customers can integrate Oracle technology into their existing IT landscape and still realize significant benefits from using Oracle products anywhere in their technology stack.Oracle is investing over $4 billion per year in R&D to deliver best of breed and engineered systems and to provide complete end to end performance and value. We are able to deliver greater innovation more quickly than our competitors, because we coordinate development across all of our engineering teams responsible for different layers of our stack.
Slide Transition: Oracle is making massive investments in the core technologies that make up the Oracle Stack, over $4B a year in R&D including the development, integration, and test of the entire Oracle stack.Areas of specific focus for the Systems division:Microprocessors that are optimized for Database, Middleware, and Java. Solaris, the Leading enterprise cloud operating systemLeading edge System level and cross system networkingBest of breed systems and highly integrated and
Slide Transition: The new Oracle SPARC Server portfolio provides the foundation for building the Modern Data Center and addressing the most critical IT challenges and opportunities of today AND tomorrow.Many Data Centers are struggling to keep the “lights on” in their current IT operations, while at the same time are under enormous pressure to modernize the data center to address the massive growth in data, the flexibility of virtualized service delivery, consolidation of costly and outdated systems. And eventually, many would aspire to implement Software as a Service through public and/or private Clouds.
Slide Transition: The new Oracle SPARC Server portfolio has been completely refreshed to address the complete range of compute requirements of the Modern Data CenterStarting with the T4 systems released last year, and then with the introduction of T5, M5 and M6 systems, Oracle now has the most complete portfolio and highest performing servers in the industry. With over 20 World Record performance benchmarks, Oracle SPARC servers are clearly the leader in performance. And that superior performance provides better price/performance and a lower overall Total Cost of Ownership. And these new systems running Oracle Solaris are 100% compatible with previous generations of Solaris Applications. We guarantee it!
Slide Transition: Here you can see how Oracle is out innovating against the competition by delivering 100% application performance improvement with each new generation of processor. This is far beyond typical IBM and x86 improvements of 30-50%. And Oracle has delivered at a much fast pace than the competition, with 4 new SPARC processors delivered in just over 3 years since the acquisition of Sun Microsystems and SPARC.
SlideTransision: And the results we’ve achieved are nothing short of spectacular. The recently released T5 systems increase performance over previous generation of T4s by more than 100%, and scales linearly up to 8 sockets for an extremely powerful and versatile line of servers. Doubling of processor cores and increasing processor clock speed were key to improving performance, while sing the same S3 from T4 allows us to kept the best benefits of the T-Series the same with integrated no-cost virtualization, systems management and security feature. Ultimately we have achieved over 20 World record benchmark for Database, Middleware and Applications.
Slide Transition: And going forward, we have an aggressive and focused roadmap that continues to deliver 2X performance increase with every new processor released. We already have M7/T7 processors in the lab up and running, and our designers are working on M8/T8 processor designs
Slide Transition: One of Oracle’s key strategic advantages is the ability to design and build “Software in Silicon” to provide Oracle Database and Java software acceleration in hardware. Future processor designs include acceleration of Oracle Database query and Java applications, as well as support for accelerated data protection and data decompression. No other systems vendor in the industry is able to deliver this level of integration and customer value.
Slide Transition: The Analyst community has begun to take note of Oracle’s focused investment and it’s unique position in the industry to deliver increased customer value though integration across the entire stack.Analysts see clear customer benefit for existing SPARC/Solaris customers, providing very compelling reasons to replace legacy systems with dramatically improved performance and price performance, but also they are convinced that the new family of SPARC/Solaris systems will to significantly increased competition in the Unix server marketplace. We couldn’t agree more.
Slide Transition: And the analysts are recognizing that the new Oracle SPARC servers are particularly well positioned against Ibm Power systems, in both performance and the value Oracle SPARC Servers provide with our strong track record of delivering new processors on an aggressive schedule, as well as the clear value of Oracle’s commitment to maintain binary compatibility. This combination of 2X performance increase with each generation and commitment to binary compatibility provides unparalleled benefits of investment protection and consistent performance improvement over time. Only Oracle provides this level of performance improvements and backwards compatibility.
Slide Transition: Here is an example of an Oracle Customer that chose to expand their SAP R/3 implementation using SPARC T4’s, T5’s, Solaris 11 and Oracle Database.Through careful planning and engagement of Oracle Advanced Consulting Services, this customer was able to:increase their SAP system performanceReduce the number and cost of Oracle Database serversProvide scalable capacity on demand in a cost effective mannerModernize their legacy storage architecture to Oracle Pillar Axiom Storage 600, with native support of Oracle Database Hybrid columnar compression.In this account, Oracle beat IBM on servers and EMC on the storage. Oracle’s key differentiatiors were:Integrated, tested solution (servers, storage, OS, Database)Single point of contact for solution design, implementation and supportReduced implementation risk and highly reliable solution for Mission Critical Enterprise applicationsThis program was implemented on time, within budget, and with minimal customizations thanks to Oracle Advanced Consulting Services.
Slide Transition: So you’ve seen what we’ve achieved with the T4 and T5 processor, now let’s talk about the new M6 processor and M6-32 server.The New Oracle M5 and M6 servers provide a huge leap forward with massive gains in performance compared to prior generation servers and deliver the same levels of uptime and reliability customers have come to expect from Oracle Mission Critical systems. Here you see the massive scale and bandwidth capabilities of the new M6-32 system and the industry leading cost-performance metrics compared to IBM P795 and previous generation SPARC servers
Slide Transition: The new Oracle M6-32 server is a game changing addition to high-end enterprise computing market, with unmatched scale, capacity, and availability.M6-32 is well suited for the largest database and consolidation deployments, and offers highest levels of flexibility with very low overhead system partitioning and no-cost, highly efficient virtualization. And your existing solaris applications will run on M6-32 without modification or recompilation, through our guaranteed application binary compatibility for Solaris.And with the recently announced Oracle In-memory database for 12C, combined with the massive 32 terabytes of memory, and over a terabyte of memory bandwidth, M6-32 is the highest performing server for Oracle Database.
Slide Transition: Historically, you have had to pay a significant premium for the scalability and performance of larger SMP systems, but with T5-8 and M6-32, Oracle has redefined the economics of large SMP computing. We used a number of published benchmark results from IBM and from us to determine performance for the various servers. By graphing these publicly available benchmarks and publicly available pricing, we are able to show that the Oracle Server portfolio has near cost/performance, while IBM charges a significant premium for their larger SMP systems.Other publishedbenchmarks, including for 3rd party ISV applications, show the same trends, but unfortunately we are not allowed to show the publishedbenchmark data in any relative price/performance comparison publicly.
Slide Transition: The Oracle SPARC Server portfolio is specifically designed to meet the RAS requirements of our customer’s enterprise application, and you can see we have built the highest levels of RAS in to our larger SMP systems for “Mainframe class” availability.One very important feature of our integrated system is our ability to do secure, live migration of Virtual Machines using our on chip encryption and Live Migration for OVM for SPARC. This may seem like a small feature, but it is available on all our SPARC servers at no additional cost, and we are certain that this is critical functionality that most of you require.
Slide Transition: Since the introduction of the M5-32 and the M6-32, we have been winning new business across a broad range if vertical industries. From Government agencies, to financial services, Oil and Gas, and Manufacturing, Oracle Customers have seen massive improvements in performance, large savings in operating expense and floor space, and exceptional value over competition systems such as Power 7/7+ servers from IBM.
Slide Transition: Here is an example of an early win we had with M5-32 in the Financial Services sector:This Large Financial Services customer is one of the largest financial institutions in the Middle East, with a strong corporate and retail banking franchise. This customer operates over 250 branches and has grown to become a lead financier and arranger of syndicated loans.The F.S. customer has been planning to redefine its strategic direction for the online banking, business support and decision support critical applications in order to increase customer loyalty and become a center of excellence for its customers. Part of that strategy is to transform its banking infrastructure to operate more efficiently and reduce operating cost.Opportunity:- Consolidate the legacy environment: three SunFire 25K servers, three SunFire 6900 systems and close to 50 midrange Sun Sparc Systems Consolidate Oracle Databases and Siebel on different IBM systems to reduce operating costs and operate more efficiently Customer wants to modernize current infrastructure of 1Gig Ethernet to 10Gig Ethernet IBM proposed IBM Mainframe, IBM zLinux system and IBM AIX system Oracle team helped raise the bank’s confidence and excitement in the future of Sparc technology, Oracle’s commitment and support for Oracle Solaris OS and new Oracle Virtual Networking products for network virtualizationSolution: The customer decided to deploy Oracle software on Oracle technology, including plans to migrate Oracle DB and Siebel on IBM (Power5 systems and mainframe) and Oracle DB on Window OS tothree x Oracle Sparc M5-32 Systems across two sites.- Oracle Solaris 11: new Optimized Shared Memory (OSM), which allows dynamic resizing of the Oracle Database system global area (SGA) without having to reserve memory and reboot the Oracle Database, unlike other operating systems such as IBM AIX or Red Hat Linux. Oracle Virtual Networking: to enable the dynamic networking between Oracle Sparc M5 domains, provide high-bandwidth and low-latency fabric and security with network isolation.
Slide Transition: So what are the anticipated results?Customer chose Oracle solution because we showed that we could save them $6M in OPEX over the next 5 years and achieve ROI in just 24 months.4x the current online transactionperformance at 1/8 of the data center footprint by collapsing 24 current racks into 3 racks of SPARC M5 + Oracle Virtual Networking (OVN) 40x more network bandwidth (new 40Gbps with Oracle Virtual Networking vs. old 1Gig Ethernet) Cut number of compute cores by 50% (new 288 cores compared to previous 616 cores) 92% reduction in infrastructure complexity (now 2 ports/cables vs. previous 24 ports/cables) Reduce database encryption overhead with Oracle SPARC’s built-in hardware crypto-accelerator Reduce application and database network latency with Oracle Virtual NetworkingThis is a clear example of how our new systems provide great value and performance gains not only to our legacy SPARC deployments, but also in consolidation of Oracle Database and applications running on competitor systems.
Slide Transition: On top of powerful virtualization capabilities, Oracle Solaris is the most powerful and reliable operating system for Enterprise ApplicationsOracle Solaris has greater market share than IBM AIX and HP UX, and is out-shipping Red Hat Linux (IDC Server Tracker, total revenue, CY2012). It’s the first OS designed specifically to support cloud services with built in support for fully virtualized servers, storage, and networking. Massively scalable for cloud scale deployments, secure and simple to manage.Oracle Solaris is engineered to work together with the underlying hardware beneath it, and Oracle software that depends on it, above it.
Slide Transition: To manage Oracle SPARC Servers, Oracle Solaris and our virtualization solutions, we also provide a complete management tool: Enterprise Manage Ops CenterOur Enterprise Manager Ops Center solution offers our customers the most comprehensive lifecycle management for your infrastructure. From data center discovery to management of oracle virtualization and configuration, EM Ops center greatly simplifies lifecycle management. In addition, additional features including proactive system analytics, health checks and remote management provide advance warning before problems occur and pro-active alerts. Our number one priority is to offer you tools that will allow you to bring your servers, storage, and networking into production as quickly and efficiently as possible. After that we want to make sure you are using that equipment to the best of its ability. We want to offer you the assurance that you are operating at the lowest cost of ownership. Ops Center delivers on these fulfilling these needs and more.
Slide Transition: Bringing this all together, Oracle Support Services provide unmatched value versus the competitionOracle Premier Support services provide complete system licensing and support for all the critical components of the system, including Hardware, Operating System, Systems Management SW, and Virtualization. This is very different than our competitors who charge separately for OS license and Virtualization license, and also charge additional support fees for OS, Virtualization, and systems management support on top of their HW support. When you look at the total costs of acquisition and support, Oracle’s Support Advantage is clear. And we provide a single point of contact, single accountability, and integrated engineering and support teams that can provide fastest response and highest levels of SW release testing, patch release, bug fix, and on going maintenance best practices. This is clearly one of Oracle’s most valuable offers to our customer.
Slide Transition: So you can see that Oracle has a very unique advantage over the competition when it comes to the value we build in to our SPARC/Solaris Servers.Our servers are engineered to deliver the highest performance and the lowest cost, to give our customers maximum value. We do this through integrating within and across the many layers of the Oracle “Stack”
Slide Transition: Moving up the stack to the Database, Middleware, and Applications layers, we have also created Oracle Optimized Solutions and Engineered Systems to enhance the customer benefits of running Oracle Software on Oracle Systems. For each enterprise application environment, our engineering teams identify the best environment for running those applications – in some cases, that’s based on our Engineered Systems, in others we’re picking individual best-in-class server and storage components (SPARC, x86 or combinations). The engineering teams across the software and hardware products work together to identify, integrate and conduct full stack testing – resulting in documented best practices for deployment, tuning and getting the most out of your IT investments.You don’t have to run Oracle Software on your Oracle Systems to get better performance and lower cost, but your results will be even better if you do.
Slide Transition:Through Oracle’s unique capabilities to co-engineer Hardware and Software to deliver greater run time attributes around performance, availability, security, and management combined with TCO advantages, Oracle delivers 14 different Optimized Solutions that deliver significant differentiation and value over the competition. These astounding results are the proof that Oracle is uniquely positioned to deliver unparalleled customer benefits like no one else. No other competitor is capable of engineering optimizations into a single vendor solution like Oracle by applying engineering enhancements to specific areas of the stack where the results are greatest from firmware to application code.(All claims used on this slide have substantiations coming from respective Solutions.See Substantiations slides at the end of this presentation.
