Had a fantastic day one at Oracle OpenWorld.
Some of the specifics/features
12 S3 Cores running @3.6 GHz
48MB shared L3 Cache
Scalable to 32 processors
2 integrated 2×8 PCIe 3.0
4.27 billion transistors
3 Terabytes per second bandwidth
1.4 Terabytes per second memory bandwidth
1 Terabyte per second I/O bandwidth
32 Terabyte system memory
This thing is quite the beast.
We were told that the M7/T7 chip is running in the lab now. It extends the software on silicon to include:
Database query acceleration
Application data protection
The first day shows us that Oracle continues it’s growth in the SPARC space. Exciting things coming real soon in the Solaris/SPARC world.
