These certified systems take advantage of Supermicro’s superior system designs and high-performance 2nd Generation Intel Xeon Scalable processors. Also, by leveraging Intel Optane DC persistent memory users can support larger datasets and higher availability with database restarts. The systems enable users to derive outstanding performance and value from their Oracle database and applications with up to 28 cores and 2933MHz memory speed. New and existing customers are taking full advantage of Supermicro’s enterprise-class servers, leveraging their resource-saving architecture to power their mission-critical Oracle software-based solutions for the most demanding cloud and hybrid Oracle workloads.
“Supermicro’s launch of certified solutions with Oracle Linux and Oracle VM across their server lines highlights the value and demand that mutual customers are experiencing from the combined solutions,” said Robert Shimp, product management group vice president, Oracle Linux and Virtualization at Oracle. “Oracle and Supermicro’s collaboration focuses on helping customers to achieve great performance for their data center, cloud, and enterprise deployments.”
