To support continued innovation and reduce organisation-wide energy consumption, BMC Software has implemented Oracle’s SPARC Enterprise T-series servers with Oracle Solaris in its datacenters and research and development (R&D) department.

BMC Software’s Business Service Management provides customers with a comprehensive approach and unified platform that that helps IT organisations cut costs, reduce risk and drive business profit.
Oracle's high-density, low power consumption SPARC T-Series servers help reduce data center costs with massive scalability, on-chip security, and built-in, no-cost virtualisation.
Oracle’s SPARC Enterprise systems running Oracle Solaris and Oracle VM Server for SPARC, and tightly integrated with Oracle Database, Oracle Fusion Middleware and Oracle Applications, deliver highly optimised system performance, efficiency and scalability.
Supporting BMC’s efforts to employ a “virtualisation first” approach in its IT organisation, Oracle’s built-in, no-cost virtualisation technology provides BMC the flexibility to deploy new system images in an hour or less, while maximising data center floorspace and driving down power and cooling costs.
Over a three-year period, Oracle’s Sun SPARC Enterprise T5240 server has saved BMC on average between $20,000 and $35,000 in power costs per server. Oracle’s SPARC T3-2 server is expected to nearly double those savings, consuming one-eighth the power and emitting one-eighth the CO2 of existing UltraSPARC IIIi-based servers.
“Oracle’s SPARC Enterprise T-Series servers are a mainstay in our data centers, supporting our R&D efforts with virtualised high density compute that enables us to quickly respond to requests for new resources and keep costs down,” said Steve Carl, senior technologist, BMC Software.
“The powerful combination of Oracle hardware and software not only enables us to reach our aggressive energy reduction goals, but it also will allow us to expand our core center of innovation -- our R&D department.”
