Oracle Exadata Storage Server. Part II.

I have to run over and man a live single-rack HP Oracle Database Machine Demonstration in Moscone North, so I thought I’d take just a moment to post some links to more official Oracle information on Oracle Exadata Storage Server:

Main Oracle Exadata Storage Server Webpage

Oracle Exadata Storage Server Product Whitepaper

I plan to start a FAQ-style series of blog posts regarding the HP Oracle Database Machine and Oracle Exadata Storage Server as soonas possible.

Yesterday was a big day for me, and the extremely talented team I work with. Having the pleasure of doing performance architecture work on Oracle’s most important new product in ages (my humble opinion) has been quite an adventure. One of the last Oracle Exadata Storage Server tasks I worked on prior to the release was a Proof of Concept for Winter Corporation. Expect the report from that work to be available in the next few days. I’ll post a link to that when it is ready.

    Indeed it is, in my opinion as well.

    Sincere congratulations!


    p.s. We are starting to get our questions ready.
    By the way did you see Christo’s analysis about imposed best practices in the Exadata & DB Machine?

    Congrats on all the launch. I’m sure it must have been hard not being able to say anything about it.

    I remember reading a post of yours a few months back debunking (I can find it now…) either the columnar stores or something else. Looking back, you probably held back quite a bit.

    Anyway, I’m like Mr. Burns, real excited about this. Now to find somewhere that will use it!

    Hi, I wonder how it is that nobody says/asks nothing about how this new product aligns with HPs neoview…
