Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud X4-2 further advances Oracle’s leadership in delivering Engineered Systems for running custom and packaged applications with superior performance, while reducing data center cost and complexity. Compared to the previous release, Oracle Exalogic X4-2 provides higher throughput and coupled with Oracle Exabus technology, delivers near native response times for virtualized applications, resulting in greater consolidation benefits. Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud X4-2 hardware, powered by Intel® Xeon® processors, provides 50% more cores per node, large amounts of memory and significantly increased flash and disk storage capacity. In addition, the latest release of Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud Software provides the ability to combine different application architectures (bare metal, virtualized and infrastructure as a service) on a single rack and allows customers to leverage virtualization templates and assemblies through Oracle VM Templates and Oracle Virtual Assembly Builder.
