Will the Oracle SPARC SuperCluster work for me and my business?
The Oracle SPARC SuperCluster T4-4 is a good fit for a number of database deployments. Examples include consolidation of smaller database servers into a single cluster, a turnkey development and test platform for customers moving to Oracle Database 11g Release 2. For smaller databases, the SPARC SuperCluster T4-4 includes the newest SPARC T4-4 series servers suitable for consolidating a number of smaller Oracle databases. It also allows you to run smaller applications in secure Solaris Zones on virtual machines supported by Oracle VM Server for SPARC. However, for high end database deployments Oracle recommends the SPARC Enterprise M-series servers or Oracle Exadata. These solutions provide maximum scalability and extreme performance.
