The Larry Keynote: The X is Here
By billy.cripe on Sep 24, 2008
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.
