smoke and mirrors - - move along, nothing to see here......
"........Oracle just tossed that slide up during its launch webcast without explaining it, but presumably all of the hardware has been normalized between the 1.0 and 2.0 releases......"
"... presumably..." !!!!!!!!!!
How many machines/cores/instances????, chipset revs, no details?????
smoke an mirors I say!!!
Is it me??????
Or does anyone reading this feel the same as when they watch Clarkson on top gear testing a car that 0.0000000000001% of the population will ever own or need? I for one have never experienced under-steer on the M25 or the need to calculate how quick the world could go fooom after pressing the appropriate buttons.................
which depending on the make and model of the blade chassis could end up being somewhere between 50 and 64 blades
surely with Fujitsu on board that should read ....between 50 and 72 blades......
sloppy sloppy sloppy TPM
read this and thought
no shit sherlock......................
potentially misleading stats?
The Fujitsu comparison to Oracle is a bit misleading as all the M-series boxes sold by Oracle, are in fact made by Fujitsu are they not?

I would suggest that it the above should read:

hmmmmm, had this problem a while ago
I had the battery problem, coupled with a 'you have used your data allowance' message from O2? My iphone 4 battery would go from 100% to off overnight! Suddenly stopped without me doing anything? OS update has not brought it back! Strange........................
"The traditional operating system is not only less relevant when it comes to orchestrating server hardware, but also when it comes to providing access to applications. Increasingly, apps are handled by online services."
Presumably these on-line services are delivered by applications, running on O/S's on top of a box? (P/V does not matter which).The V bit does not reduce the number or the dependancy of the OS surely?, if so I think I've missed a serious piece of IT development...................
Reality Distortion Field hmmmmm..........
Are you a Douglas Adams (Hitch Hikers guide to the Galaxy) fan? If not get hold of a copy of the books and look up 'The Sirius Cybernetics Corporation' who basically produce devices whose superficial design flaws mask their fundamental design flaws. The theory is that after battling with a device for ages to get a minor function working you don;t have time to realise the fact that overall the device is useless...............
RAS on chipsets
AC, I would broadly agree howver there are examples of RAS being implemented on the chipset, Himalaya for example. One more mainstream would be AIR (Automatic Instruction Retry) on the SPARC 64 chipset, implemented to deal with the significant amount of 'transient' errors.
they'll just ship all the ramaining silicon engineers to Fujitsu!
they will just ship all the remaining silicon engineers to Fujitsu............
turd vs turd.
Ohhhhh so you mean Oracle should move customers from a chip set that they don't own to one that they do! Hey wait a minute, is that laughter coming from a board room somewhere in Japan?

errr I thought we were talking about x64?
Jesper, one small point that makes the above comnparisons irrelevant......
PRIMEQUEST IS BASED on ITANIUM!!!!!!!!!!!
One of the best kept secrets in the industry is that Dell's Supply chain solution was so important to them that they did not run it on their own kit, they used Himalaya from Tandem, who were aquired by Compaq and then swallowed by HP, which is where they started, surely they will have removed it by now..............
