Oracle unveils new Exadata Database Machine

Offers choice of configurations for managing database deployments

By CBR Staff Writer

Oracle has unveiled Exadata Database Machine X2-8, a new configuration of the company’s product line that offers customers a choice of configurations for managing small to large database deployments.

Database Machine X2-8 features two 8-socket database servers with a total of 128 Intel CPU cores and 2 terabytes of memory, 14 Exadata storage servers with 168 Intel CPU cores and up to 336 terabytes of raw storage capacity, and over 5 terabytes of Exadata smart flash cache.

In addition, it offers multiple compression tiers to manage more data and reduce I/O requirements of OLTP and data warehousing data, and 40 gigabit InfiniBand internal connectivity and 10 gigabit ethernet external connectivity.

Oracle said that the new configuration provides the ability to query fully encrypted databases with near-zero overhead at hundreds of gigabytes per second.

The Exadata X2-8 also helps customers to provision scalable database services in a private cloud environment, address performance needs of enterprise OLTP and data warehousing applications, and reduce IT costs through large-scale database consolidation of ERP, CRM, and mixed workloads.
