The Larry Keynote: The X is Here

X = The HP Oracle ExData Database Machine is available TODAY.

Oracle hardware in the form of the O. Database Machine.
Larry announces the Oracle database machine. Yep, Oracle hardware.
The specs on the performance is HUGE! Aprox 30x performance benefit over similar storage. The X doesn't use traditional storage array. It balances storage service and incredibly fast interconnect.

LISTS for less than 14K per TB out the door. Much less than other vendors. More comparable to disk array prices.

Prediction: this kind of performance is not simply an efficiency enhancement, it opens the gateway to new, more intelligent, more responsive, more process/analytic/query intensive applications.

Comments:

Hi Billy I failed in trying to figure out how to send you a message in InformationZen without leaving it publicly on your wall, so I thought I would reach out to you via the blog. I was contacted by an Oracle recruitment person yesterday, ref a possible opening with the Fusion middleware public sector consulting team in Toronto. As I don't know any Oracle employee's I thought I would ask you if you would comment on what its like to work at Oracle, corporate culture etc. If you dont mind doing that by dropping me an email, it would be appreciated. On the other hand if your way tooooo busy, I also completely understand :-) Cheers Jed
