A Different way of Designing

In the past, Fowler noted, systems design focused primarily on connecting networking with storage and the operating system to build a product – with an arm’s – length approach to applications. Oracle is able to archive so many new world records because the database team, the Java team, and the middleware team work together and influence every aspect of the system design, he said. “It’s a lifestyle here. The teams do intensive micro benchmarks and simulations in the design phase to create these systems.”
The new SPARC T5 and SPARC M5 systems leapfrog  the competition with up 10 times the performance improvement over the previous generation, Fowler said, offering an unbeatable value for midrange and high-end enterprise computing.
