The key announcement from day one are out now and I am pretty sure there’s a bunch of unhappy people at SAP headquarters in Germany with the announcement of Exadata X3 which is 42 times larger the largest Hanna configuration.
*) Oracle Cloud to offer Infrastructure as a Service – Not conventional infrastructure (ROS, RVM, Compute Services, Storage Services) – All on engineered systems – All networked with Infiniband
*) Oracle Private Cloud – For organizations with strict compliance requirements such as banks and government institutions.
*) Oracle Database 12c – First multi-tenant database in the cloud – Being delivered in 2013 – A single instance of the database on shared hardware that allows for shared workloads – The support
*) Exadata X3 26 TB of DRAM and Flash – Ability to have multiple databases stored in memory – Ultra-high performance 10X database compression – Store 220 TB in memory – Reduce storage costs by 10X Infrastructure of the Oracle Cloud and Private Cloud – High Performance, Reliability, Security – Only pay for what you use
Key nugget: One rack of Exadata is cheaper than a EMC Synnetrix VMAX 40K and it also comes with the database license.
