Well, just like all the best blog posts about new mobile phone models, today I bring you "Oracle Database Appliance X3-2 unboxing!" Whilst technically this may not be the most interesting article in my ODA POC series, we'll see what subtleties we can tease out from just what's on the outside.
On the right you will see the ODA packaging or, more precisely, the 3 separate boxes the it arrives in. In case you needed any further convincing following my previous posts, the X3-2 is two servers and one (or two) array(s) loosely connected together, not a kind of 2 node blade system like the ODA v1.
Looking on the bright side, at least no individual box is all that heavy - compare this to something like an HP blade enclosure which is 10U tall and certainly not a one person job to install in a rack without a fancy fork lift. Read the full article here.
