Oracle Exadata is software and hardware engineered together to provide the highest-performing and most-available platform for running Oracle Database as well as demanding data warehouse and OLTP jobs. As the Exadata comes with Oracle Virtual Machine and supports both non-virtualized and Oracle VM in the same rack, you get much more efficient use of your computing resources. Even better: Oracle VM, along with multiple software innovations, are included with the Exadata at no extra cost, making it significantly more cost-effective than comparable competitor products while outclassing them on performance.
Its architecture features a scale-out design with industry-standard servers and intelligent storage, including state-of-the-art flash technology, and high-speed InfiniBand internal fabric. Elastic configurations let you add capacity as you grow and tailor the solution to specific workloads. Exadata speed and capacity allows it to replace huge servers and arrays, so you save you power, floor space and integration costs while providing low TCO and ultra-fast performance for your users.
You can start with a one-eighth rack Exadata and add more power and storage as needed. That way, you’re not paying for capacity you don’t yet need. The new Exadata Extreme Flash (EF) Storage Server provides scalability, availability and InfiniBand connected smart storage for industry leading performance. It will make light work of your database consolidation, data warehouse and database-as-a-service (DBaaS) challenges.
With the Exadata, you save money upfront and benefit from low TCO too. For cost-effective scaling, you can choose Capacity on Demand. All necessary database cores are installed but some are turned off, reducing your software cost. As your needs grow, you can simply have them turned on and adjust the licensing accordingly.
Oracle Exadata is the fastest machine for all workloads – and cost-effectiveness and high availability are part of the package!
