Upgrade to the Latest SPARC Infrastructure Delivered as-a-Service from ViON

SPARC has a long-standing industry reputation of reliability and performance. However, as agencies plan their paths to IT modernization, there is a debate over the need to increase performance and the hesitation to replace existing infrastructure - especially one with a trusted name. This is particularly critical as organizations consider how to implement resource-intensive applications like AI and data analytics while managing a host of structured data applications and without driving up costs.

Oracle is providing a new solution for SPARC users with the introduction of the Fujitsu SPARC M12, which provides mainframe-class reliability, improved performance and greater efficiency, with the flexibility of an as-a-Service financial model.
• 2.5 times more processing power than older SPARC servers
• Smaller footprint consolidates the data center, reducing costs
• Superior performance for ERP, BIDW, SCM, CRM, Big Data and Analytics workloads
