Oracle Unveils Exadata Version 2: The First Database Machine for OLTP
Posted on 17-Sep-2009 08:59. | Tags Filed under: News.

The world's first OLTP Database Machine was unveiled by Oracle Chief Executive Officer, Larry Ellison; and Sun Executive Vice President John Fowler.

The Exadata Database Machine Version 2, made by Sun and Oracle, is the world's fastest machine for both data warehousing and online transaction processing (OLTP).

"Exadata Version 1 was the world's fastest machine for data warehousing applications," said Oracle CEO Larry Ellison. "Exadata Version 2 is twice as fast as Exadata V1 for data warehousing, and it's the only database machine that runs OLTP applications. Exadata V2 runs virtually all database applications much faster and less expensively than any other computer in the world."

Built using industry standard hardware components plus FlashFire technology from Sun, Oracle Database 11g Release 2 and Oracle Exadata Storage Server Software Release 11.2, the Sun Oracle Database Machine Version 2 is twice as fast as Version 1 for data warehousing.

The Sun Oracle Database Machine goes beyond data warehousing applications with the addition of Exadata Smart Flash Cache based on Sun FlashFire technology to deliver extreme performance and scalability for online transaction processing (OLTP).

Exadata Version 2 is available in four models: full rack (8 database servers and 14 storage servers), half-rack (4 database servers and 7 storage servers), quarter-rack (2 database servers and 3 storage servers) and a basic system (1 database server and 1 storage server). All four Exadata configurations are available immediately.

The hardware uses Sun's FlashFire memory cards to enable high performance OLTP and Intel Xeon (Nehalem) processors to achieve 80% faster processing when compared with previous versions. These new servers also support up to 72GB of DDR3 memory and 40 Gbps networks.

Oracle Exadata Version 2 features Oracle 11g Release 2.
