Oracle Exadata allows enterprises to run any Oracle Database workload with the highest performance, scale, availability, and security on fully compatible cloud and on-premises infrastructure. Exadata uses a scale-out design with unique optimizations that include persistent memory, SQL query offload, and built-in resource management to optimize performance for OLTP, analytics, machine learning, and mixed workloads running in consolidated environments. By running hundreds or thousands of optimized Autonomous Database and Exadata Database instances on Exadata Cloud or Cloud@Customer infrastructure, customers are able to minimize their infrastructure, reduce management, improve developer productivity, and lower total costs by up to 40%, as described in Wikibon’s analysis (PDF).

Oracle Exadata Database Service and Oracle Autonomous Database running on Exadata platforms in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) let customers easily move enterprise applications to the public cloud. Organizations can take advantage of unique Exadata hardware and software optimizations, along with the simplicity of OCI, to achieve the highest performance, scale, and availability for Oracle Database. Advanced cloud automation, dynamic resource scaling, and flexible subscription pricing enable customers to run database workloads faster and with lower costs.
– Oracle Cloud Infrastructure automation allows customers to quickly provision databases and manage them throughout their lifecycle, increasing productivity.
– Database-transparent persistent memory (PMem) integration reduces SQL read latencies to as low as 19 microseconds, allowing applications to support more transactions with lower costs.
– Independent provisioning of database server and storage resources allows customers to increase efficiency and lower costs by using only the resources needed for current workloads.
– Scale-out support for 8 to 8,064 vCPUs with up to 44 TB of database server memory allows customers to consolidate more databases within a single service, increasing operational efficiency and lowering costs.
– Intelligent storage servers that offload SQL processing from database servers and deliver up to 2.88 TB/second of scan throughput allow customers to generate deeper data-driven insights with up to 3.1 PB of uncompressed databases and 31 PB of compressed data warehouses.
– Flexible subscription pricing with online scaling of vCPU consumption enables customers to tightly control costs and meet peak requirements without interrupting operations.
– Dedicated infrastructure increases workload isolation and security.
Oracle Exadata Cloud@Customer is the simplest way to move an organization’s business-critical Oracle Database workloads to the cloud. Built using the latest Exadata technology, it simultaneously runs Oracle Exadata Database Service and the automated and fully managed Oracle Autonomous Database inside customers’ data centers and behind their firewalls to help meet strict data residency and security requirements.
– Secure deployment behind customers’ data center firewalls enables enterprises to meet data residency, security, and latency requirements
– Running Oracle Autonomous Database Service and Exadata Database Service concurrently on the same Cloud@Customer infrastructure allows customers to efficiently consolidate workloads in their data centers and develop new applications
– Infrastructure owned, managed, and maintained by Oracle allows customers to eliminate capital and management expenses, while running Autonomous Database Service eliminates most DBA manual management tasks
– Database-transparent PMem integration reduces SQL read latencies to as low as 19 microseconds, allowing applications to support more transactions with less infrastructure and lower costs
– Flexible storage scaling with up to 763 TB of capacity allows customers to cost-effectively support larger consolidated database workloads, including up to 6.1 PB of data warehouses with hybrid columnar compression
– High performance with up to 22.4 M SQL read IOPS and 540 GB/s of throughput for analytics and machine learning allows customers to accelerate IO-intensive databases while consolidating diverse database workloads
– Flexible subscription pricing with automatic up-and-down scaling of vCPU consumption enables customers to tightly control costs and meet peak requirements without interrupting operations
– Operator Access Control allows customer IT teams to address concerns about Oracle remote management by authorizing, limiting, monitoring, and controlling all remote infrastructure management by Oracle
Oracle Exadata X9M allows customers to lower costs by reducing the amount of resources needed for OLTP, analytics, and consolidated Oracle Database workloads. Exadata X9M runs Oracle Database with the highest performance, scale, and availability, improving operating efficiency while simplifying management workloads.
– A complete, integrated solution with built-in high availability and monthly full-stack patching allows IT teams to reduce system management while improving security
– Database-transparent PMem integration reduces SQL read latencies to less than 19 microseconds, allowing applications to support more transactions with less infrastructure and lower costs
– Up to 27.6 M SQL read IOPS and 1TB/s of analytics throughput per rack enable customers to increase OLTP throughput and accelerate data-driven insights while consolidating diverse workloads
