SPARC Supercluster and TPC-C result Observation:

In the  FAQ of the SPARC Supercluster:

How do the world record TPC-C results relate to this new
solution?
The new SPARC Supercluster configurations are based on the
architecture and technologies used in the new TPC-C world
record result. The three new configurations benefit from the
software and hardware integration and optimization efforts that
went into achieving this landmark result.

In reality

the TPC-C configuration use

  • F5100, T3-4, and 10ge as RAC interconnect and
  • COMSTAR FC target that base on Solaris express with x4270M2  that use SVM to strip Fmod in F5100 and FC switch to connect all  FC target to T3-4
  • ZFS only used as root FS.

The SPARC Supercluster use

  • F20 Flash card that doesnot fit into T3-4
  • IB as RAC interconnect with IB-Gateway switches
  • ZFS appliance as Storage with IB connection , not sure which protocol  over IB to connect to Server
  • M5000 only support DDR IB not QDR

Marketing is Marketing, two configuration does share:

  • SPARC
  • flash Fmod
  • Solaris 10
  • Oracle RAC 11gR2
