Oracle has completed the rollout of Oracle Exadata Cloud Infrastructure X9M, the latest generation of Oracle Database Platform in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI), which will allow customers to run existing workloads much faster, with greater scale and at a much lower cost.
Exadata Cloud Infrastructure X9M offers up to 8,064 database server vCPUs, 2.5 times more than X8M, and up to 3.1 petabytes of uncompressed database capacity – a 28 percent increase. It also delivers a higher level of performance, enabling customers to process more mission critical transactions in less time and develop greater insights with more sophisticated analytical algorithms and a larger analysis of data.
Exadata’s fault-tolerant hardware and integration with Oracle Real Application Clusters will provide continuous operations across failures and enables infrastructure to be expanded, upgraded, and updated without interruption. With the ability to use four to 252 vCPUs per database server and two to 32 database servers per system, enterprises can consolidate mission-critical databases in the cloud without running out of resources.
Juan Loaiza, executive vice president of mission-critical database technologies at Oracle, said: “Autonomous Database and Exadata Database Service uniquely provide stock exchange-level performance, availability, and security transparently to all apps. With Exadata Cloud Infrastructure X9M, we adopted the latest CPU, networking, and storage hardware, and optimized our software to deliver Oracle’s highest performance, most scalable, and most cost-effective cloud infrastructure for developing and running Oracle Database workloads – all at the same price as the previous generation.”
