Why Oracle Exadata platforms are the best for Oracle Database

The same capabilities on-premises and in the cloud

Oracle Exadata lets customers run Oracle Database with high performance, scale, and availability. Databases can easily move between on-premises data centers, Cloud@Customer deployments, OCI, and multicloud environments with Microsoft Azure, enabling customers to develop and run database applications with high performance wherever they need them.

Deployment options for enterprise databases

Greater automation

Running the fully managed Oracle Autonomous Database on Exadata infrastructure in OCI lets organizations rapidly develop cloud native applications and eliminate the management of infrastructure and database software. Using Exadata Cloud@Customer infrastructure in customer data centers extends these benefits to help address data residency, security, and latency concerns.

Higher performance and scale for all workloads

Oracle Exadata’s scale-out architecture lets organizations independently configure compute and storage to optimize database performance and create data warehouses with up to 40 PB of capacity with Oracle Hybrid Columnar Compression (HCC). In addition, Exadata Cloud@Customer lets organizations run the automated Oracle Exadata Database Service and fully managed Autonomous Database in their data centers with the lowest SQL latency for OLTP applications and the highest SQL throughput for analytics and machine learning workloads.

Lower infrastructure and management costs

Organizations can reduce total costs by consolidating Oracle Database workloads of any scale and criticality on Exadata infrastructure. They need less infrastructure and operate more efficiently with dramatically less overprovisioning. Automation of common DBA tasks, such as indexing, tuning, and patching, lets customers reduce operational costs.

The highest performance for Oracle Database in the cloud

The highest performance for Oracle Database in the cloud Benefit from unique hardware and software optimizations that accelerate all database workloads by running Autonomous Database and Exadata Database Service on dedicated Exadata Cloud Infrastructure in OCI or Microsoft Azure—and on Exadata Cloud@Customer. Advanced cloud automation, dynamic resource scaling, and flexible subscription pricing let you run database workloads faster and at a lower cost.


–Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) automation helps increase productivity, enabling you to quickly provision databases and easily manage them throughout their lifecycle.

–Small starting configurations and independent scaling of database servers and storage resources enable you to increase efficiency and reduce costs by easily right-sizing your environment.

–High parallelism with low SQL read latencies gives your transactional applications the best throughput at the lowest cost to consistently meet even the most stringent service level agreements (SLAs).


–Intelligent storage servers offload SQL processing from database servers and deliver up to 2,880 GB/sec of scan throughput to generate deeper data-driven insights with petabytes of uncompressed databases and tens of petabytes of compressed data warehouses.

–Exadata’s scale-out design—with hundreds to thousands of processing cores and up to 44 TB of memory—boosts operational efficiency by enabling you to consolidate tens to thousands of databases on a single Exadata Cloud Infrastructure, thereby increasing resource utilization and lowering costs.

–Flexible subscription pricing with online consumption scaling lets you control costs and meet peak requirements without interrupting business operations.

–Dedicated, Oracle-managed infrastructure increases workload isolation and security.

Automated and fully managed databases on a hybrid cloud database platform

Oracle Exadata Cloud@Customer is the simplest way to move an organization’s business-critical Oracle Database workloads to the cloud using the automated Exadata Database Service and the fully managed Autonomous Database. Built using the latest Exadata technology, it brings cloud automation and economics to customers’ data centers and helps them meet data residency requirements.


–Secure deployment behind customers’ data center firewalls lets enterprises meet data residency, security, and latency requirements.

–Running Autonomous Database and Exadata Database Service concurrently on the same Exadata Cloud@Customer infrastructure lets customers efficiently consolidate workloads in their data centers.

–Infrastructure owned, maintained, and managed by Oracle lets customers eliminate capital and management expenses, while running Autonomous Database dramatically reduces DBA management tasks.

–Starting configurations with two database servers and three storage servers provide 380 available database processing cores, 192 SQL processing cores in storage servers, 135 GB/sec of analytics throughput, and 240 TB of usable storage capacity, meeting the combined Oracle Database processing needs of many organizations.


–Independent 16X scaling of database servers and 21X scaling of storage resources let customers tailor solutions to meet their current needs and add additional capabilities later as demands change.

–High parallelism, low SQL read latencies, and up to 2,880 GB/sec of analytics throughput with 40 PB of HCC compressed databases let organizations run transaction processing, analytics, machine learning, and other database workloads fast, efficiently, and with lower costs.

–Flexible subscription pricing with online consumption scaling lets customers tightly control costs and meet peak requirements without interrupting operations.

–Oracle Operator Access Control lets customer IT teams address concerns about remote management by authorizing, limiting, monitoring, and controlling all remote infrastructure management.

On-premises performance, scale, and availability for Oracle Database

Oracle Exadata Database Machine lets customers meet the needs of growing on-premises workloads with the highest performance, scale, and availability for transaction processing, analytics, and in-database machine learning workloads. By consolidating database workloads of all scale and criticality on a single system, customers reduce the amount of infrastructure they need, reduce administration, and lower costs.


–An integrated, full-stack solution with built-in high availability and monthly patching lets IT teams reduce system management while improving security.

–Starting configurations with 384 database processing cores, 192 SQL processing cores in storage servers, 135 GB/sec of analytics throughput, and 30.72 TB capacity optimized flash drives meet the combined Oracle Database processing needs of many organizations.
