Oracle Exalytics

Today was Keynote 1: Larry Ellison was on stage.

At first he started about Oracle Exadata and Oracle Exalogic.
He provided some details about this products and then introduced the SPARC SuperCluster T4.

This machine is a combination of Exadata and Exalogic in one. It can be used for general purpose.
The announcement was made last week on Monday, so Larry repeated this for?

After this was the announcement we were waiting for: Exalytics:
Exalytics #oowbenelux

Before we entered the huge conference room we already saw the complete stack of Exa- family standing in one line.
Also the ODA (Oracle Database Appliance) was displayed.

You can see a complete whitepaper on Exalytics on Oracle.com
In short it’s a machine with 1 tb memory in it. With compression enabled up to 5 tb of data can be stored in memory.

Reports can that can be generated from memory and performance will be increased dramatically.
This software is provided on a Exalytics machine:
• Optimized Oracle Business Intelligence Foundation Suite
• In-Memory Analytics software (TimesTen database)
• In-Memory Analytics Hardware

Furthermore you can connect this machine with infiniband to Exadata (for maximum performance)
You can also use this machine on existing hardware via Ethernet
