Oracle acquired Sun Microsystems in 2010, and since that time Oracle's hardware and software engineers have worked side-by-side to build fully integrated systems and optimized solutions designed to achieve performance levels that are unmatched in the industry. Early examples include the Oracle Exadata Database Machine X2-8 , and the first Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud , both introduced in late 2010. During 2011, Oracle introduced the SPARC SuperCluster T4-4 , a general-purpose, engineered system with Oracle Solaris that delivered record-breaking performance on a series of enterprise benchmarks. Oracle's SPARC-based systems are some of the most scalable, reliable, and secure products available today. Sun's prized software portfolio has continued to develop as well, with new releases of Oracle Solaris , MySQL , and the recent introduction of Java 7 . Oracle invests in innovation by designing hardware and software systems that are engineered to work together.
