A Revolution in Data Management – Oracle Exadata X8M
What does the future look like for data management? The world is expecting faster transaction processing than was possible before, combined with faster queries thanks to larger in-memory data collections, and very rapid database recovery from any outage, planned or unplanned, particularly on the analytic side.
Leading IDC Database Analyst Carl Olofson published a compelling new research report on Exadata X8M, and how with Exadata X8M powered by 2nd Generation Intel® Xeon® Scalable Processors And Intel® Optane™ Persistent Memory, has been engineered to deliver dramatically better performance, cost effectiveness, and availability for Oracle databases.
Enterprises that are considering running Oracle Database on generic cloud infrastructure or DIY configurations need to be aware that such environments do not deliver anywhere near the high throughput, low latency, and simplicity offered by Oracle Exadata. With Oracle Exadata X8M, those advantages are taken to another level.
Oracle Exadata X8M powered by 2nd Generation Intel® Xeon® Scalable Processors And Intel® Optane™ Persistent Memory enables enterprises to replace large, multivendor DIY infrastructures with fewer and smaller Exadata systems that dramatically reduce complexity as well as datacenter footprint and power requirements. Enterprises can avoid applying patch sets from multiple component vendors, Oracle Exadata X8M significantly reduces surface exposure to cyberattacks and eases timely patching with regular single bundle implementations.
The bespoke design elements of Exadata serving the exact requirements of the Oracle Database, will continue to offer a differentiating advantage for Exadata in terms of power and performance. Automatic Indexing (a technology from Oracle Autonomous Database) and AI-based root cause analysis, are exclusively available on Oracle Exadata and uses its built-in machine learning capabilities to reduce time spent on tuning databases and troubleshooting performance issues.
This demonstrates the business value of Exadata X8M's machine learning capabilities, which enable companies to focus on more strategic projects while the system and Oracle Database tune themselves.
