This week, Fujitsu, the Japanese IT company and Oracle have announced that they have teamed up to deliver new, ultra-fast servers. The companies say that the move will give cloud computing and digital transformation a push forward.

The servers are called SPARC M12, and the companies say that the servers come equipped with a new SPARC64 XII processor. Fujitsu claims that the new processor allows the SPARC M12 server achieve the world’s highest per CPU core performance.

The companies also announced that there are two models available for the new servers, the SPARC M12-2, and the SPARC M12-2S, which can be expanded to a maximum of 32 processors.

Fujitsu and Oracle say:

In recent years, as the Internet of Things (IoT), big data and artificial intelligence (AI) have become more prevalent in companies and society, there has been an ever-increasing volume of data to be processed, leading to demands for even greater performance, combined with a reduction in operational and management costs.

Edward Screven, Chief Corporate Architect at Oracle commented that Fujitsu and Oracle claim the new servers can support customers’ digital transformation efforts, as they promise stability with stable operations and new cooling systems.

Screven added:

Oracle and Fujitsu have worked together for more than three decades to produce SPARC systems satisfying the demanding requirements of mission critical infrastructure.

Fujitsu SPARC M12 servers featuring the new SPARC64 XII processor for extreme core performance is an exciting addition to the SPARC family, allowing customers to address their most difficult computing challenges with systems that offer both high performance and enterprise reliability.
