Oracle-Sun 08/2010 Systems Strategy

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 Roadmap:
Solaris 11 is coming next year, with multiple upgrades scheduled for the next 5 years.
Solaris Features:
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.
SPARC Trajectory:
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.
SPARC Roadmap:
A hardware announcement is scheduled to happen later this year and the roadmap shows a doubling of perforance before the end of the year.
SPARC Direction:
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.

Storage Trajectory:
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 Storage:
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.
