Global software major Oracle Corporation Wednesday unveiled its latest database server, which is 10 times faster than its earlier version for Indian enterprises across industry verticals.
"We are launching the product Sparc super-cluster T5-8 in India first, a week after its global launch in the US, in view of the growing importance and size of the market here and its multiple benefits to our enterprise customers," Oracle India director Mitesh Agarwal told reporters in Bangalore.
Pre-integrated with its servers, storage, networking and software tools, the super-cluster's engineered system will enable enterprises to process huge volumes of data in quick time with T5 processor, which is twice as fast as the T4 processor of 2011.
The T5 server's 16-core microprocessor is built on chip technology of Sun Microsystems, which Oracle acquired in January 2010.
"As enterprises face infrastructure complexity and pressures to lower costs, our new product will enable them to process complex databases and applications even in private cloud environment," Oracle vice-president Ganesh Ramamurthy said at a preview of the product.
The 20-year-old Indian subsidiary has about 7,000 customers, including 4,500 in the mid-size segment across verticals spanning telecom, financial services, government, retail, manufacturing, education and healthcare.
"The super-cluster T5 runs database and enterprise applications on a single platform and lowers total cost of operation through consolidation and deliver secure multi-tenant cloud services five times faster than earlier version," Agarwal asserted.
The company also launched an enhanced support service to help enterprises optimise their investments in IT infrastructure and database management.
"As the highest level of service in the industry, we will respond to our customers in five minutes, restore or escalate their call in 15 minutes, debug in 30 minutes and monitor on 24x7 basis to remediate issues," Ganesh pointed out.
With over 1,000 partners and about 30,000 techies at its development centres in Hyderabad, Bangalore and Gurgaon in Haryana, the subsidiary's hardware and software products are engineered to work together for enterprises, including third-party data services providers.
