New Oracle Exadata Database Machine Optimized for Large-Scale In-Memory and Database Cloud Workloads [37395]
Exadata Database Machine X4-8 Features Extreme Compute, Storage, and Memory Capacity

Supporting large database workloads used to require large numbers of high-end servers and storage arrays. Now, with Oracle's new Exadata Database Machine X4-8, workloads that previously required dozens of racks of equipment can run dramatically faster on a single engineered system.

The Exadata Database Machine X4-8 delivers extreme compute and data throughput for large database workloads using powerful 8-socket database servers, intelligent storage, ultra-fast PCI flash cards, and unified InfiniBand connectivity.

While the Exadata Database Machine X4-8 excels at traditional database workloads such as online transaction processing (OLTP) and data warehousing, it is specifically optimized for a new generation of workloads: database as a service (DBaaS) and database in-memory. With up to 12 terabytes (TB) of DRAM memory, the Exadata Database Machine X4-8 can consolidate hundreds of databases and can run massive databases entirely in-memory.

Faster Big Data Analytics [36976]
By Peter Jeffcock

Peter writes, "Oracle Exadata is our engineered system optimized to run Oracle Database as fast and efficiently as possible. There are some optimizations that Exadata uses to speed up queries. One of them is called Smart Scan.

The big bottleneck in completing a query is moving data around. Imagine that in order to complete your query, you needed sales figures for just one US state. Traditionally the database would load all the sales figures into the server and process it there. Smart Scan pushes that processing down to the storage server holding the data. Processing is done locally, and the storage server returns only the needed data from that one state. Data movement is minimized, and the query returns much faster..."
