Oracle-Sun 08/2010 Systems Strategy
John Fowler, Executive Vice President, had a web conference concerning the systems strategy for the merged Oracle & Sun company. The full PDF of slides was made available. For those who are more interested in systems oriented news, captured [high resolution] screen shots are captured with the interesting highlights.
Solaris 11 is coming next year, with multiple upgrades scheduled for the next 5 years.
Oracle understands what Solaris is - this is the operating system where if the data needs to be secure and the business must function, this is the advocated direction for the business.
Systems based upon the open SPARC central processors with the Solaris operating system will continue to receive upgrades to deliver performance improvements over the next 5 years.
A hardware announcement is scheduled to happen later this year and the roadmap shows a doubling of perforance before the end of the year.
One SPARC architecture, one operating system, one systems management, one virtualization strategy, more memory, more threads, more cores, and system aggregate throughput increases of 2x every 2 years.
Substantial "order of magnitude" improvements over the net 5 years.
Oracle Storage Roadmap:
Industry leading now, will continue to do so into the future.
Oracle is number 1 or first to market on an increasing number of technologies.
Oracle is the one to trust and the one who will deliver the goods for the next 5 years!
It will shortly be a very good time to build out a Network Operations Center, to get the most advanced and stable operating system on the latest next generation SPARC architecture.
