ORACLE: New Roadmap for SPARC and Solaris

in hardware on (#3HK)
story imageOracle has published a roadmap [PDF] for its SPARC and Solaris platforms and makes a commitment to SPARC until at least 2019. This was picked up by The Register in a recent article :
Optimists will be pleased that Oracle appears to have three generations of silicon in mind and appears committed to SPARC until 2019 and beyond. Pessimists might wonder if the "core enhancements" due around 2019 represent a worryingly vague statement of direction and/or intent. The planned 2017 and 2018 enhancements to thread strength and throughput also look incremental compared to the heftier enhancements planned for 2015 and 2016, which could be worrying for those who need SPARC to scale.

I hope you're right, in the interest of platform diversity.
