With such a performance upgrade, SPARC Enterprise has once again proved it is the best platform for accommodating high workloads and slashing running costs. For example, an upgrade to M3000 from PRIMEPOWER 450 with no application recompilation requirements, will improve application performance by around 30 per cent, based on Fujitsu’s OLTP performance test results.
In addition to the performance upgrade, M3000 is also aimed at reducing server running-costs to the lowest level possible. Upgrading to M3000 will therefore also dramatically improve cost performance.
Max. power consumption can be reduced to less than 50% and space requirements also halved.
M3000’s use of a dense quad-core processor, enables software license and support charge reductions. For instance, Oracle support charges can be less than 1/12th those compared with PRIMEPOWER 450 (*1)
