Oracle will host a Webcast on April 30 at 11 am PT to provide a deeper dive into Oracle Virtual Networking and today’s news.
Oracle Virtual Networking Support for Oracle’s SPARC Servers and Oracle Solaris
Using Oracle Virtual Networking, SPARC T5 and T4 server customers can build and deploy cutting-edge applications and deliver new cloud services.
Oracle Virtual Networking enables SPARC customers to consolidate older SPARC/Oracle Solaris applications onto a flexible fabric based on SPARC T-series and M-series servers without downtime.
Oracle Virtual Networking is the only data center fabric that can deliver larger server pools with scalable I/O. Configuration with eight Oracle Fabric Interconnects can scale up to 1,000 servers and 128,000 cores using Oracle’s SPARC T5 systems.
Ideal for virtualization, Oracle Virtual Networking enables customers to run more VMs per server and get predictable performance for mission-critical applications with granular quality of service controls.
For cloud deployments, customers can create up to 16,000 private Ethernet layer-2 networks inside a single fabric and maintain necessary network security in multi-tenant cloud environment.
Additionally, the new release of Oracle Fabric Manager 4.1 unifies management for SPARC and x86 systems deployed with the Oracle Fabric Interconnect.
“As the industry’s fastest data center fabric, Oracle Virtual Networking enables increased performance and agility while virtually eliminating the complexity in traditional data centers,” said Raju Penumatcha, vice president, Product Development, Netra Systems and Networking, Oracle. “Now with added support for the fastest processors on the planet and the first cloud OS, customers can leverage the benefits of Oracle Virtual Networking in both SPARC and x86 environments.”
