New Oracle servers and engineered systems annouced.

In December of 2014, Oracle announced new Server models, X5-2 and X5-2L. They're based on the latest processors from Intel - the Xeon® E5-2600 v3 processor family (aka Haswell-EP processors). We've also announced support for high bandwidth NVM Express (NVMe) flash drives on both new servers. Oracle leveraged these updates to engineer new Exadata and ZDLRA appliances. Also new is the Oracle SuperCluster T5 system. The new Exadata X5 Storage Servers are based on the new X5 systems, Oracle eliminated the need for the High performance storage cell and introduced a new Extreme Flash cell, the High Capacity option still available brings a lower cost savings and extreme performance to our customers.

Exadata - Following up on customer deployments

me Over the last year or so I've been visiting customers who have had Exadata deployed and have been enjoying the benefits the platform has been providing. Benefits include greater performance, consolidating multiple databases, data compression and time to value improvements. Most often I hear my reports run faster. One hospitality company report times that used to take 3 hrs now run in 12 seconds. Another services company reported all their batch reports taking 11hrs now run in 38 mins. Also reported that their transactions post faster, and batch updates run faster. So what does that mean? For most of them it means that now they have a platform that can handle growth. Most are growing 15% organically, but I've also seen 40% growth thru acquisition. Exadata has been keeping up with the additional data demand by customers leveraging compression and the smart storage features.

Oracle Exadata workshop

Engineered Systems

Well, we got off to a rocky start, my car battery was dead first thing in the morning. Ugh, it caused me to be 1 hour late. Then there was a mix up in the conference rooms, but we all got it squared away and by 9:30am we got started. I hope you all got came away from that day with a little more knowledge about Exadata and what it has to offer and a better understanding of what Oracle's Engineered Systems are about. Please feel free to post comments, I'd love to hear from you.
