Oracle Unveils Netra SPARC T3 Servers

New Carrier-Grade Blade and Rackmount Servers Deliver Better Performance

Bringing the performance, scalability and power efficiency of the SPARC T3 to the communications market, Oracle today announced two new carrier-grade, NEBS Level 3-certified servers -- Oracle's Netra SPARC T3-1 rackmount server and Oracle's Netra SPARC T3-1BA ATCA blade server.

The new Netra SPARC T3 servers further expand Oracle's complete portfolio for the communications industry, which includes carrier-grade servers, storage and application software to run operations support systems and service delivery platforms with easy migration capabilities and unmatched investment protection via the binary compatibility guarantee of the Oracle Solaris operating system.

With advanced reliability, networking and security features built-in to Oracle Solaris -- the most widely deployed carrier-grade OS -- the systems announced today are uniquely suited for mission-critical core network infrastructure and service delivery.

For service providers faced with the rapid growth of broadband networks and the dramatic surge in global smartphone adoption, the new Netra SPARC T3 systems deliver continuous availability with massive scalability, and are tested and certified to run in the harshest conditions.

Netra SPARC T3 Server Details

  • The world's first carrier-grade system using the 16-core, 128-thread SPARC T3 processor, the Netra SPARC T3-1 server supports 2x the I/O bandwidth, 2x the memory and is 35 percent faster than the previous generation.
  • With integrated on-chip 10 Gigabit Ethernet, on-chip cryptographic acceleration, and built-in, no-cost Oracle VM Server for SPARC and Oracle Solaris Containers for virtualization, the Netra SPARC T3-1 server is an ideal platform for consolidation, offering 128 virtual systems in a single server.
  • The Netra SPARC T3-1BA ATCA blade server delivers industry-leading scalability, density and cost efficiency with up to 36 SPARC T3 processors (3456 processing threads) in a single rack -- a 50 percent increase over the previous generation.
  • The Netra SPARC T3-1BA blade server also offers high-bandwidth and high-capacity I/O, with greater memory capacity to tackle the increasing business demands of the communications industry.
