Look, Touch, Deconstruct.

Getting Hands-On with Hardware (and Software) at the Oracle DEMOgrounds

By Michael Kure

Among the demo pods at the DEMOgrounds at Moscone South are Oracle experts ready to talk to you about engineered systems, servers, storage, optimized solutions, software-defined networking, and more. This is the place to go for you to look, learn, touch, and deconstruct—and, of course, your opportunity to ask the tough question.

New and attracting crowds is the just-announced Oracle SuperCluster M6 with 32 terabytes of memory. A cluster of people (pun intended) gather around the ‘Big Memory Machine' and Exadata Storage Expansion units—looking and taking pictures.

Hardware afficionados interested in database solutions with a big memory footprint and performance acceleration through Exadata technology come by to check out capabilities and ask questions.

Another draw is “engineered systems deconstructed,”—with its four-pedestal configuration which pulls apart Exadata, Exalogic, and Oracle SuperCluster—where people can see, touch, and examine the various components.

Data sheets are great, but nothing beats being able to see and touch the products in person—and getting the opportunity to question the people who made them.

yeah better to ask the questions directly to the creators...
