Oracle has announced what it says is the world's fastest microprocessor and a set of servers built around it. The company claims 17 world records for the SPARC T5 and says the SPARC M5 (also released today) is even faster, although benchmarking has yet to be completed.
Oracle's SPARC T4 may be seen by some as a minority platform, but the company has announced it now has 3000 enterprise customers running mission-critical workloads, nearly four times as many as this time last year.
IBM has exceeded the SAP benchmark record it set last month by a huge margin. Getting almost twich as much work done by doubling the number of processing cores is no mean feat.
Also I updated the links in the article above so they work now. Sorry about that.
Where are the servers based?
