Oracle’s SPARC M8-8 server is an eight-processor system based on the SPARC M8 processor, using the revolutionary Software in Silicon technology from Oracle.


The SPARC M8 processor, and the servers and engineered systems that it powers, delivers more efficient software utilisation. Oracle has published benchmark information to demonstrate that SPARC M8 processor-based systems outperform Intel’s latest processors and systems by 2-7x, placing Oracle years ahead of the competition.

Oracle will continue to advance our SPARC platform. Organisations with mission-critical applications have come to depend on the performance, security, and reliability that these systems provide. In the coming years, customer should expect continued advancements in I/O devices, memory, and storage options, as well as in Oracle Solaris, to push Oracle Database and Java performance to new extremes. Oracle has adopted a continuous delivery model for Oracle Solaris 11 enhancements that ensures easy and low-risk updates.

With Oracle’s SPARC platform and the new SPARC M8 processor-based systems our customers’ investment is well protected. Oracle has publicly committed to supporting Oracle Solaris 11 until at least 2034. Oracle’s Lifetime Support Policy for hardware ensures that customers do to not have to replace their existing environment before they and their applications are ready for an upgrade. When they are ready, the Guaranteed Binary Compatibility enables seamless expansion to either modern on-premise SPARC-based systems or to Oracle’s SPARC Dedicated Compute IaaS in the Oracle Cloud. Either way, customers can rest assured that Oracle respects their investment, and will be here to support them for the long-term.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]For more information on First Distribution’s range of SPARC T8 or M8 servers, please contact us on [/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
