Last SPARC Chip, End of Life.

Everyone - I wanted to share some information to be aware of for the SPARC chipset and its future. 

In addition, I spoke with Oracle leadership at Oracle Open World and the new Oracle Product Manager for SPARC at Open World this week and they stated the following:

Oracle confirmed for 100% fact that the M8 will be the last SPARC chipset. They said chipset development is every expensive and Oracle will be investing in building the cloud and continuing the relationship with intel. This means unless a customer really wants SPARC the M8 chip (newly released) is their last option for now and then they will need to migrate to an intel platform when their SPARC system becomes end of life.
