How Oracle Exadata aims to accelerate machine learning

#artificialintelligence

Delivering performance and availability, Oracle Exadata is the foundation for Oracle Autonomous Database, the world's first self-driving database, and Oracle Cloud Applications. In the fiscal year 2018, Exadata set all-time product sales records with continued adoption across multiple workloads such as OLTP, Analytics, and IoT, and multiple verticals, including finance, retail, electronics, and telecommunications. "For the past 10 years, Exadata has been running the most critical workloads for thousands of customers around the world. Exadata now powers Oracle Autonomous Database and Oracle Cloud Applications," said Oracle VP Juan Loaiza. "Today, we are improving the performance and capacity of the platform, and adding a broad range of capabilities based on artificial intelligence and machine learning to further increase Exadata's advantages."


Oracle Unleashes World's Fastest Database Machine Markets Insider

#artificialintelligence

ORACLE OPENWORLD -- Oracle Exadata Database Machine X8M, available today, sets a new bar and changes the dynamics of the database infrastructure market. Exadata X8M combines Intel Optane DC persistent memory and 100 gigabit remote direct memory access (RDMA) over Converged Ethernet (RoCE) to remove storage bottlenecks and dramatically increase performance for the most demanding workloads such as Online Transaction Processing (OLTP), analytics, IoT, fraud detection, and high frequency trading. "With Exadata X8M, we deliver in-memory performance with all the benefits of shared storage for both OLTP and analytics," said Juan Loaiza, executive vice president, mission-critical database technologies, Oracle. "Reducing response times by an order of magnitude using direct database access to shared persistent memory accelerates every OLTP application, and is a game changer for applications that need real-time access to large amounts of data such as fraud detection and personalized shopping." Exadata X8M helps customers perform existing tasks faster and accelerates time-to-insight, while also enabling deeper and more frequent analyses.

Oracle Corp. is updating its powerful Exadata database server appliance that's used by companies to run its Autonomous Database and cloud applications. The Oracle Exadata Database Machine X8, made generally available today, brings with it some "unique machine learning capabilities" that help to improve performance and monitoring. It's the latest update of a computer that was introduced more than a decade ago. "Today, we are improving the performance and capacity of the platform, and adding a broad range of capabilities based on artificial intelligence and machine learning to further increase Exadata's advantages," said Juan Loaiza, executive vice president of Mission-Critical Database Technologies at Oracle. Analyst Holger Mueller of Constellation Research Inc. said the real value of Exadata X8 is that Oracle offers it not just for customers running its database on-premises, but also those who opt for the cloud version of its Autonomous Database deployed on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.

As we reported last fall, Oracle's refresh of its Exadata database consolidation platform was a generation change with major architectural changes that turbocharge transaction processing and analytics. The Exadata X8M platform, introduced to on-premises customers last fall, is now becoming available in the Oracle Public Cloud, but with a major new twist. It is tapping the scale of the cloud to boost the capacity of Exadata for analytics to hold up to 25 PBytes of data. Oracle Exadata customers have embraced the new platform. In Q1 results released last month, Oracle reported that X8M accounted for the majority of Exadata Database Machine sales, and that overall Exadata on-premises sales for the quarter grew 15%.
