Everything is cloud, and the technologies supporting the infrastructure are evolving at a rapid pace. Rapid innovation and technology lifecycles has resulted in a broad set of choices, leading to uncertainty when companies are making investments in infrastructure meant to last several years. The ability to develop services and capabilities is not just a strategic advantage but rather a critical capability necessary to remain competitive.
Oracle's SPARC T4-4 server delivered world record performance
with subsecond response time
on the Oracle OLAP Perf Version 2 benchmark using
Oracle Database 11g Release 2
running on Oracle Solaris 11.
The SPARC T4-4 server achieved throughput of
with an average response time of 0.85 seconds and the
median response time of 0.43 seconds.
This was achieved by using only 60% of the available CPU resources
leaving plenty of headroom for future growth.
Oracle's SPARC T4-4 server running Oracle's PeopleSoft HCM 9.1
combined online and batch benchmark achieved a world record 18,000
concurrent users experiencing subsecond response
time while executing a
PeopleSoft Payroll batch job of 500,000 employees in 32.4 minutes.
This result was obtained with a SPARC T4-4 server running
Oracle Database 11g Release 2,
a SPARC T4-4 server running PeopleSoft HCM 9.1
application server and a SPARC T4-2 server running
Oracle WebLogic Server in the web tier.

There’s been a lot of discussion lately surrounding energy consumption and data centers. Did you happen to catch the New York Times post about it? There’s no doubt about it – reading about waste and pollution from “cloud computing” is difficult to digest. But rest assured, here at AMD, we take energy efficiency seriously.
The thing about cyber security is the good guys – that’s us and the rest of the technology industry, as well as law-abiding users of technology everywhere – have to be right about securing technology 100 percent of the time. The bad guys – the thieves, mischievous hackers, and other nefarious types – only have to be right one time to break-in and steal someone’s sensitive data or cause other problems.
Those are tough odds.
