New Exalytics X3-4 Available
By Rob Reynolds on Jul 17, 2013
The new Exalytics X3-4 engineered system is now available for order.
The new X3-4 system features 2 TB of main memory, 2.4 TB of flash storage, and 5.4 TB of hard disk. System upgrades to increase memory capacity for existing Exalytics X2-4 customers are also available.
Oracle Exalytics X3-4 enables:
- Deeper Analysis: The new system has increased main memory to 2 TB, plus compression, for analyzing larger data sets and more aggregates at various levels of granularity in-memory. Exalytics users can access unlimited amounts of data, unconstrained by in-memory capacity because Oracle Business Intelligence software automatically and transparently manages queries across the Exalytics in-memory cache and all underlying data sources, such as data warehouses and Hadoop. With Oracle Business Intelligence Foundation Suite as the core software component of Oracle Exalytics, customers will be able to analyze critical information and get the intelligence they need to optimize their business.
- Faster Calculations: Flash memory in the new Oracle Exalytics powers faster calculations, restructuring, load and export for Planning applications, what-if analysis and scenario modeling with Oracle Essbase. The increased storage capacity enables performance improvements of up to 25X in load times and 9X in calculation times when running multiple Oracle Essbase cubes concurrently. The increased storage capacity for running multiple cubes enables more dynamic forecasts through faster aggregates – giving business users key information to make more informed decisions as they advance their strategic objectives.
- Greater Mobility: Oracle Exalytics X3-4 works seamlessly with Oracle’s leading mobile solution, BI Mobile HD, with no additional development required. The performance acceleration and scalability of Oracle Exalytics is ideal for large mobile deployments, and users can enjoy enhanced gestural interactivity and access to all visualization capabilities. End-users will have near instantaneous responses on mobile devices, optimizing productivity while away from the office.
