SPARC, The State-of-the-Art-In-Silicon Acceleration of Encrypted Workloads
By Erik Benner, Enterprise Architect, Mythics Inc., Oracle ACE
This is an extended version of my OOW session, where I will show how SPARC servers can accelerate encryption workloads, and will show how this effect database and WLS workloads. I will run swingbench against a database, then encrypt the table space using TDE, and rerun the same benchmarks. I will go over the history of SPARC, and show where the T4 added in the ability to boost encryption speeds. I will also show how newer generations of SPARC, like the SPARC X also boost in-memory database workloads.
