Executive Summary

This white paper, intended for executives and managers, describes how Oracle's Sun servers-equipped with flash-enabled solid-state drives (SSDs)-offer dramatic improvements to high-performance computing (HPC), Web 2.0, and datacenter application performance. In many environments today, high-performance CPUs must wait while data is delivered from the storage subsystem; even the fastest hard disk drives (HDDs) provide only hundredths of the speed of modern servers. Sun servers equipped with SSDs can be configured to use fewer HDDs to deliver the same input/output (I/O) storage performance, resulting in lower capital and operating expenses.
