S.H.I.E.L.D. agents know that the SPARC SuperCluster combines the computing power of the SPARC T4-4 server, the unmatched scalability of Oracle Solaris 11, the database optimization of Oracle Exadata, and the accelerated processing of the Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud.
With intergalactic jurisdiction comes an intergalactic volume of data—all of which needs to be securely stored, backed up, and archived. S.H.I.E.L.D. depends on Oracle's Sun ZFS Storage for hot backup and NAS storage, Oracle's Pillar Axiom for SAN storage, and Oracle's StorageTek libraries and drives for backup and archiving.
Oracle Exadata provides S.H.I.E.L.D. agents and analysts with extreme database performance for both data warehousing and OLTP applications. Exadata's scalable, secure, and redundant architecture is critical in making sure the right information gets into the right hands at the right time.
S.H.I.E.L.D. agents use Oracle Exalogic to run S.H.I.E.L.D.'s day-to-day operations, enter mission and status reports, and run classified applications. Oracle Exalogic is engineered for cloud computing and is tested and tuned to run Java applications.
When assessing threats, S.H.I.E.L.D. must quickly draw insight from massive amounts of data. Oracle Exalytics' advanced data visualization and exploration capabilities always hit the target.
Raw information—like raw power—must be channeled and transformed to be useful. Every day, S.H.I.E.L.D. captures terabytes of information from a variety of sources—surveillance videos, satellites, sensors, field reports, network traffic—and all of this high-volume, high-velocity, and high-variety data is processed, filtered, transformed, and sorted in Oracle Big Data Appliance.
