- SPARC T5-8 Delivers SPECjEnterprise2010 Benchmark World Record Performance
- SPARC T5-2 Achieves SPECjbb2013 Benchmark World Record Result
And there's a new white paper available, which discusses the specific advantages for Java performance that Oracle (more...)
Last time, I outlined the general issues that must be addressed to achieve operating system scalability. Next I will provide more detail on what we modified in Solaris to reach the M5-32 scalability level. We worked in most of the major areas of Solaris, including Virtual Memory, Resources, Scheduler, Devices, (more...)
In response to the release of Oracle's SPARC T5 and M5 chips, which are dramatically faster than those of IBM, IBM responded by saying that speed was not as important as other qualities. Forbes begged to differ:
Continuing on the performance theme: Oracle's SPARC T5-8 server is now the world's fastest single server for Oracle Database. In a server-to-server comparison, T5-8 has a sevenfold price advantage over a similar IBM Power 780 configuration for database.
This is a perfect example of what we can do by (more...)
In the following video, Bart Smaalders, from the Oracle Solaris core engineering team, explains why they decided not to provide a direct upgrade path from Oracle Solaris 10 to Oracle Solaris 11, and the best way for a data center to perform an indirect upgrade.

Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center で始める、次世代 Oracle Solaris 統合管理システムの構築
オラクルのハードウェアと OS、仮想化リソースを包括的に管理するソフトウェアである Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center 12c と Oracle Solaris を組み合わせた統合管理システムについて説明します。
Ops Center 12c を導入することにより、物理ハードウェアやオラクルが提供する仮想化環境を資産として一元化することができ、効率的なシステム運用が可能となります。
また、Oracle Solaris の最新情報も併せて紹介します。

How do you scale a general purpose operating system to handle a single system image with 1000's of CPUs and 10's of terabytes of memory? You start with the scalable Solaris foundation. You use superior tools such as Dtrace to expose issues, quantify them, and extrapolate to the future. You (more...)
On the one hand Oracle is telling you that Solaris is the key component of the Oracle stack, that we've been investing heavily in it, and that it provides the best platform for managing the stack. Watch these videos:
One of the side effects of choosing the name "Solaris" for our OS is that we share it with several other companies in unrelated fields: sunglasses, snack bars, roofing shingles and the like--and the book, of course. I hear there were even movies.
Just for fun, I collected a few (more...)
The Oracle OpenWorld Call for Proposals is now open, through April 12th. What does this mean to you, the Solaris person? This is a chance for you to share your experience with your peers, and to interact with some of the top Oracle Solaris experts in the world.
Oracle OpenWorld San Francisco is a unique experience in a unique city, and if your proposal is accepted, you'll get a complimentary pass to the show (you can also submit proposals for JavaOne and MySQL Connect). OOW is September 22nd-26th this year.

Earlier this month I was able to bought the book “Sun Performance and Tuning: Java and the Internet (2nd Edition)” for only 190pesos at some bookstore
Amazon sells it for 2400pesos..
It’s a pretty old book and was published around 1995-1996 but the content is still interesting. This led me to research more on the author and all of his work. Well hey! This guy is a recipient of the Michelson Award by Computer Measurement Group (CMG) I strongly suggest you subscribe to the monthly MeasureIT publication.. lots of good stuff on performance. The name of the mystery guy is (more...)
