Oracle Solaris Brings Mission-Critical Applications and Cloud Agility Together on a Single Fujitsu M10 Server, Supporting the Needs of Today’s Datacenters
Bangalore, India – March 25, 2015 – IT organizations today face increasingly intense demands for greater performance, scalability and efficiency due to massive data growth and often turn to server virtualization and private/hybrid cloud infrastructure to meet evolving service level requirements. Fujitsu M10 servers running Oracle Solaris 11.2, a fully-integrated enterprise OpenStack® distribution, are an ideal match for today’s IT requirements. The combination of the mission-critical strength of Oracle Solaris and its integration of OpenStack open-source cloud software enables IT leaders to build efficient, compliant, secure, open and affordable clouds and allows cloud and legacy applications to co-exist on a single system, to easily transition datacenter infrastructures to on-premise/hybrid cloud models.
According to Alex Lam, vice president of Enterprise Products Business at Fujitsu America, Inc., “Few datacenters in the U.S. are truly greenfield, meaning the majority of datacenters are required to support mission-critical legacy workloads, while at the same time supporting the development and deployment of new applications for the cloud. Fujitsu M10 servers with Oracle Solaris offer a powerful solution to help IT leaders transition their datacenters to the cloud, while maintaining critical SLAs around performance and mission-critical capabilities.”
Fujitsu M10 servers are flexible and scalable systems that deliver high performance and mission-critical reliability for enterprise-class workloads. These high performance servers are based on Fujitsu SPARC64® X+/X processors, run Oracle Solaris and offer dynamic scaling in a pay-as-you-grow model supporting up to 1,024 cores and 32 TB of memory in a single system image – among the industry’s largest capacity available on the market today, delivering extreme in-memory compute performance.
The Fujitsu M10 server recently set new world records on key industry benchmarks.
Oracle Solaris 11.2 on Fujitsu M10
Oracle Solaris 11.2 complements the Fujitsu M10 server’s capabilities by offering complete built-in virtualization, application-driven, software-defined networking (SDN), and a full OpenStack distribution. This powerful combination creates a highly efficient, compliant, secure, open and affordable foundation for private cloud computing for a broad range of industries including financial services, communications, healthcare, media and entertainment, retail and the public sector. Deep integration of Fujitsu M10 server hardware and Oracle Solaris with Oracle Database, Java and Oracle Applications further enables organizations to deliver the most reliable, high-performance and secure IT services to accelerate datacenter transformation.
Oracle Solaris 11.2 adds even more flexibility to its built-in, extremely efficient virtualization and consolidation capabilities with Kernel Zones. Using Kernel Zones with Oracle Solaris’ guaranteed application compatibility, customers can easily run existing legacy applications – even those created on older Solaris releases – along with new cloud-based services, on a single new and more powerful server platform.
Fujitsu M10 servers have a significant global install base with customers enjoying the benefits of the system across a range of industries including the North Carolina Community Colleges and Swedish power utility Svenska Kraftnät.
