New Oracle servers and engineered systems annouced.
In December of 2014, Oracle announced new Server models, X5-2 and X5-2L. They're based on the latest processors from Intel - the Xeon® E5-2600 v3 processor family (aka Haswell-EP processors). We've also announced support for high bandwidth NVM Express (NVMe) flash drives on both new servers. Oracle leveraged these updates to engineer new Exadata and ZDLRA appliances. Also new is the Oracle SuperCluster T5 system. The new Exadata X5 Storage Servers are based on the new X5 systems, Oracle eliminated the need for the High performance storage cell and introduced a new Extreme Flash cell, the High Capacity option still available brings a lower cost savings and extreme performance to our customers.
