Oracle and SPARC
Looks like Oracle starts to put some weight behind SPARC with a teaser for an announcement taking place on October the 14th at the Oracle World - Performance - Sun plus Oracle is faster.:
Oracle and Sun together are hard to match. Just ask IBM. Its fastest server now runs an impressive 6 million TPC-C transactions, but on October 14 at Oracle OpenWorld, we'll reveal the benchmark numbers that prove that even IBM DB2 running on IBM's fastest hardware can't match the speed and performance of Oracle Database on Sun systems. Check back on October 14 as we demonstrate Oracle's commitment to Sun hardware and Sun SPARC.
