Oracle SPARC CPUs compared

Oracle produced several new SPARC CPUs in the recent years.

At JomaSoft we compared the performance using our own VDCF Solaris Management Application.
VDCF is running in a LDom using only 1 core. The VDCF function we used to compare is a typical single thread task. See the results of our tests below. The VDCF function runs around 1.5x faster with each new CPU.

How Oracle goes forward with SPARC & Solaris? New Roadmap available!

Solaris 11.4 is planned for this year and another Solaris 11.x update around 2020.
Looks like another SPARC Chip M8+ is planned with new Servers and Engineered Systems.
