Oracle highlights strong demand for its SPARC T4 servers in India

Infotech Lead India:Oracle said that SPARC T4 servers are witnessing strong demand in India, nearly four times the number announced a year ago, with over 3,000 enterprises worldwide running these servers for mission-critical workloads.Highlighting a sustained growth in its hardware business, Oracle’s SPARC T4 servers featuring Oracle have been adopted by customers across industries, including Reliance BIG Entertainment, Tata Sky, Reliance Mumbai Metro, Rico Industries, Cairn Energy, Tata AIA Life Insurance, Tata Consultancy Services, Tata Communications, Tech Mahindra and Tata AIG.Unlike competitive servers, SPARC T4 servers come with built-in OS, virtualization and system management featuring Oracle Solaris, Oracle VM Server for SPARC, and Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center 12c, enabling customers to simplify cloud deployments, and automate and optimize their data centers at no additional cost.

Venkatesh Krishnan, vice president, Systems Business, Oracle India said, “Our growing customer base is proof that enterprises find a compelling value proposition in SPARC T4 servers with Oracle Solaris to power their most critical systems and to deliver outstanding business growth. With over 25 years of enterprise reliability and scale, SPARC servers and Oracle Solaris continue to be the preferred solution for running mission critical workloads. Our customers also choose SPARC T4 server for its full binary compatibility, which makes it easier for them to run and move their applications across other SPARC/Solaris OS based servers.”

Oracle Solaris 11.1 on SPARC T4 gives customers the best platform to deploy Oracle software by delivering unique database and Java features only available on Oracle Solaris systems. Demonstrating Oracle systems run Oracle software best, the Oracle Optimized Solution for JD Edwards EnterpriseOne, which uses the SPARC T4-1 server, delivers 3x faster interactive queries than the IBM Power 720 with only one-third the processor utilization.

“Mumbai Metro is running its critical enterprise applications on Oracle SPARC T4 Servers.  These applications will ensure a seamless experience, enhanced safety and timely delivery of service to our esteemed customers on the Versova-Andheri-Ghatkopar metro line. The SPARC T4 servers have allowed us to implement solutions faster and better and enabled us to be more agile to respond to the dynamic requirements of the business,” said Hemant Garg, head IT, Reliance Metro.

Oracle’s hardware and software engineers have worked side-by-side to build fully integrated systems and optimized solutions, which are designed to achieve performance levels that are unmatched in the industry. Oracle had committed to deliver new SPARC processors and server hardware every 12 to 18 months. However, Oracle has delivered more than what was committed on the SPARC and Oracle Solaris roadmap, with shorter lead times to major SPARC delivery milestones and a better-than-promised performance.

“We are committed to sustain our leadership position as a provider of the latest and most efficient systems that protect investments of our customers and drive disruptive efficiencies in the datacenter, and Oracle SPARC servers therefore are a natural fit in our portfolio. We have been able to deliver our customers significantly improved performance levels that are unmatched in the industry through our partnership with Oracle,” said Rohit Adlakha, vice-president and business unit head, ITS, Wipro Limited.
