Fujitsu and Oracle today announced the launch of Fujitsu SPARC M12, a new lineup of enterprise servers now available worldwide.
Featuring Fujitsu’s new SPARC64 XII processor, the SPARC M12 servers achieve the world’s highest per CPU core performance in arithmetic processing, offering dramatic improvements for a wide range of database workloads, from mission-critical systems on premises to big data processing in the cloud.
The new SPARC M12 servers join the vibrant SPARC technology ecosystem, and together with Oracle’s SPARC systems they leverage the unique security and scalability features of the Oracle Solaris operating system, as well as the efficiency and versatility of the Oracle VM Server for SPARC virtualization software.
The SPARC M12 servers are offered in two models: the two-processor Fujitsu SPARC M12-2 server, and the Fujitsu SPARC M12-2S server, which can be expanded incrementally to a maximum of 32 processors.
The new servers can help customers optimize investments in ICT infrastructure and create new value based on cutting-edge digital technology.
The forerunner of the SPARC M12 servers, the Fujitsu M10 server line, has been adopted by many customers as the core of their ICT infrastructure. Fujitsu M10 servers have contributed to optimized ICT investments by providing stable processing power for mission-critical databases at the foundation of corporate business, and reduced search time for information databases used in corporate marketing to 1/300th that of previous technology.
In recent years, as the Internet of Things (IoT), big data and artificial intelligence (AI) have become more prevalent in companies and society, there has been an ever-increasing volume of data to be processed, leading to demands for even greater performance, combined with a reduction in operational and management costs.
