Now that Exadata V2 has been announced, I can begin to talk about what I have been working on lately. Kevin Closson and I have been working to characterize the performance of the Exadata V2 product. The performance of this machine is just stunning. This is the fastest machine I have ever used and I have been benchmarking big iron SMP with Oracle for the better part of 20 years now.
Exadata V2 brings together the best of Brawny Hardware and Brainy Software. The storage cells utilize Sun's new FlashFire technology along with the latest Nehalem based servers. Software advances with Storage Indexes and Hybrid Columnar compression push the performance to amazing speeds. If you are at Oracle Open World, please stop by our session to learn more about the performance of this exciting new product. I will post the session details once they are available.
