Oracle launches SPARC Supercluster

Oracle announced recently the launch of its SPARC Supercluster enterprise computing system. The new supercomputer is 3 times faster than the old record holder, IBM’s DB2.

It's hard to evaluate the validity of the performance characterizations without being able to see some truly independent benchmarks and real-world usage scenarios, but the results still look mightily impressive on paper.
