Bringing the performance, scalability and power efficiency of the SPARC T3 to the communications market, Oracle today announced two new carrier-grade, NEBS Level 3- certified servers – Oracle’s Netra SPARC T3-1 rackmount server and Oracle’s Netra SPARC T3-1BA ATCA blade server.The new Netra SPARC T3 servers further expand Oracle’s complete portfolio for the communications industry, which includes carrier-grade servers, storage and application software to run operations support systems and service delivery platforms with easy migration capabilities and unmatched investment protection via the binary compatibility guarantee of the Oracle Solaris operating system.With advanced reliability, networking and security features built-in to Oracle Solaris – the most widely deployed carrier-grade OS – the systems announced today are uniquely suited for mission-critical core network infrastructure and service delivery.For service providers faced with the rapid growth of broadband networks and the dramatic surge in global smartphone adoption, the new Netra SPARC T3 systems deliver continuous availability with massive scalability, and are tested and certified to run in the harshest conditions.
