Intel has a rich history of applying its strengths in silicon manufacturing and software development to introduce innovative new technologies to the market. "Our innovation focus is on producing faster, smarter, and cheaper, more cost-effective solutions that make life better, richer, and more enjoyable for everyone," says Tom Kilroy, senior vice president and general manager of Intel's Sales and Marketing group. "A critical element of this process is the strong partner ecosystem we have built over the years."
The history of collaboration between Intel and Oracle stretches back many years. In addition to a strong marketing and business relationship, engineering teams from both companies meet regularly to design and develop joint solutions to delight their shared customers.
The latest output of this ongoing partnership is the culmination of several years of research and development: Oracle software solutions running on the Intel Xeon processor 5600 and 7500 series. This combination of hardware and software is "highly tuned to deliver the scalable performance and world-class reliability that promise to dramatically accelerate the trend toward hosting mission-critical applications on the Intel/Oracle platform," notes Kilroy. As a result, enterprise solutions based on Oracle and Intel technology offer an unprecedented ability to move large volumes of data efficiently and handle multiple millions of transactions per second.
"This powerful foundation of Oracle solutions combined with Intel-based architecture is especially important since there is an explosion of data being generated and consumed by people and business, creating a massive data footprint. Our joint solution enables businesses and technology providers to compete in this data-rich world," says Kilroy.
