    Is there a WP on what the “XtemeSW Cache” product does? If this is going to be unveiled in the event then I will wait until then and then ask you if you could share the presentation.

    Would the XIO be an OLTP or a DWH system ?
    I wonder cause if you are using Flash it will be fast at updates and reads.
    But what actually would be its target platform.

    Can you compare this to HANA ? and Exalytics or is this something else all together.

      XtremIO (formerly XIO) is fit for both OLTP and DW. A single brick handily delivers 2.5GB/s and the current systems scale to 4 bricks. If this isn’t enough one can buy 2 4-brick configurations and have ASM stripe between the bricks. That would be a 20GB/s scan machine…and a 2 million 8K IOPS system at the same time.

      XtremIO is an all flash array (AFA). It is a different beast than HANA or Exalytics.
