Oracle’s SPARC M6-32 server is best described as a big memory machine: it is the largest scale server in Oracle’s SPARC system portfolio, and provides up to 32 terabytes of memory for hosting databases and applications entirely in system memory. That is twice as much memory per processor than any other data center server. With the new SPARC M6 processors containing 2X more processor cores than its predecessor, the SPARC M6-32 server delivers extreme performance for large mission critical workload, with dramatically better price/performance over comparable enterprise class servers. This system helps maximize IT resources with the industry’s most comprehensive suite of built-in, no cost virtualization technologies bringing new levels of server utilization and efficiency. The SPARC M6-32 can minimize downtime offering the highest levels of system availability for Oracle software and core business applications.

The SPARC M6-32 server is the largest scale and highest availability enterprise server of Oracle’s SPARC portfolio. The SPARC M6-32 big memory server is designed to meet current and future mission-critical workload requirements by utilizing a highly configurable server enclosure that is optimized for reliability, availability, and serviceability. The SPARC M6-32 server can expand up to 32 processors, 32 TB of system memory, 32 internal disk storage devices, and 64 PCIe 3.0 I/O expansion slots. With the SPARC M6 processor including 12 cores and an extra large shared 48 MB level 3 cache, the SPARC M6-32 server doubles the system throughput performance from the previous SPARC M5-32 server. Unmatched system virtualization capabilities on the SPARC M6-32 server include Dynamic Domain hardware partitions, and Oracle VM Server for SPARC logical domains. Additionally, Oracle Solaris Zones can be used with both Dynamic Domains and Oracle VM Server for SPARC logical domains for greater workload isolation and increased system utilization. Up to four Dynamic Domains are supported on the SPARC M6-32 server, and up to 512 logical domains can be created. All SPARC M6-32 server virtualization technologies are built-in at no additional cost, and introduce zero overhead.

The SPARC M6-32 server provides the highest level of enterprise-class RAS features including redundancy and hot-plug capability of most major components. Other key high-availability features include use of Dynamic Domains for hardware fault isolation, end-to-end ECC memory protection, and Oracle Solaris Fault Management Architecture. These capabilities enable server self-healing, and no single system failure can prohibit system recovery, which is a requirement for mission-critical computing.

The SPARC M6-32 server is part of Oracle's most powerful and efficient SPARC-based server family ever. Oracle’s SPARC-based server family provides seamless scalability from 1 up to 32 processors and is designed with mission-critical applications in mind. All of the servers in the SPARC-based family run the Oracle Solaris operating system. They share the same virtualization capabilities through Oracle VM Server for SPARC and leverage the same systems management framework through Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center. This leads to unprecedented simplicity in the deployment of all enterprise workloads, enabling reduction of business risk, delivering savings in management costs, and unlocking flexibility to grow your business to any scale, while maximizing reliability and uptime.
