Volume 158, Issue 2
The Oracle white paper Oracle Internet Directory 11g and Oracle Exadata Database Machine in the Facebook Age reports on how the unique architecture of Oracle Internet Directory 11g allows it to scale
virtually linearly based on the available hardware. Oracle Exadata Database Machine exhibits virtually the same trait, making the combination of these two products the most optimal future-proof
directory solution currently available. Oracle projects that, with the appropriate hardware and network configuration, this combination can successfully scale to meet requirements exceeding 1,000,000 ops/sec, easily besting Facebook's current capacity.
