Oracle’s SPARC M6-32 server is a highly reliable, easy-to-manage, vertically scalable system with many of the benefits of traditional mainframes—without the associated cost, complexity, or vendor lock-in. In fact, this server delivers a mainframe-class system architecture at open-systems prices. With symmetric multiprocessing (SMP) scalability from one to 32 processors, memory subsystems as large as 32 TB, and high-throughput I/O architectures, the SPARC M6-32 server easily performs the heavy lifting required by consolidated workloads. Furthermore, the server runs the powerful Oracle Solaris 10 and Oracle Solaris 11 operating systems that include leading virtualization technologies. By offering Dynamic Domains, Oracle VM Server for SPARC, dynamic reconfiguration, and Oracle Solaris Zones technology, the SPARC M6-32 server brings sophisticated mainframe-class resource control to an open-systems compute platform.
