Oracle Server X8 systems allow customers to run Oracle Database, middleware and application workloads on industry-standard x86 servers with high security and performance. End-to-end Oracle engineering and trusted boot capabilities increase system security for customers’ x86 workloads using the same systems proven in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure and Oracle engineered systems. Oracle operating systems and virtualization software are included at no extra charge, eliminating hidden customer costs and reducing total cost of ownership (TCO).
Designed, manufactured, and tested to deliver high availability, Oracle Server X8 systems help customers reduce unplanned downtime for Oracle applications by up to 30%, as discussed in ESG’s analysis (PDF).
Virtualization, systems management, and a choice of Oracle Linux or Oracle Solaris operating systems are included with each system for lower TCO.
Built-in hardware, software, and firmware security, including Oracle-designed ILOM, reduces threats to customer applications and data.
Dense form factors with a choice of high-performance NVMe and high-capacity disk storage enable customers to build high-performance private clouds in their data centers or deploy individual systems in remote locations.

Each Oracle Server X8 system comes with virtualization software and a choice of customer-proven operating systems at no extra charge, eliminating unexpected customer costs.
Built-in hardware and firmware security features, including improved firmware image signing and secure verified boot, help customers protect cloud tenants and increase data integrity.
Trusted boot ILOM protects customer applications and data from malicious firmware at startup.
Oracle Integrated Lights Out Manager (ILOM)’s online fault diagnostics and isolation enable IT staffs to avoid system-level failures and increase application uptime.
Oracles’ Fault Management Architecture is built into Oracle Server X8 ILOM and integrated into Oracle Linux and Oracle Solaris operating systems, providing customers multi-level reliability optimizations.
Oracle-owned and developed source code for the system ILOM and full control of the supply chain prevents device tampering before servers are installed in customer data centers.
Oracle Linux with Ksplice technology allows customers to increase operating-system security by patching their systems without downtime concerns.
A choice of operating systems, virtualization, and systems management software are provided to customers at no additional charge, reducing TCO.
Up to 192 processor cores, 6TB of memory, and 128 GB/s of I/O bandwidth allow customers to reduce data center complexity by consolidating workloads on fewer, higher-performance systems.
Oracle Premier Support includes access to Oracle Enterprise Manager, enabling customers to have a full-stack view of their environment—from the system to the database.
Oracle Advanced System Cooling optimizes temperatures of internal components reducing IT staff concerns about system failures caused by overheating.
Hot-pluggable components allow IT staffs to perform maintenance without interrupting applications.
Single-vendor accountability and point of contact for both Oracle hardware and software reduce the amount of time IT staffs need to resolve complex issues.
Oracle Server X8-2’s high density allows IT teams to efficiently support compute-intensive workloads and to create private or public clouds using high-performance building blocks.
1 or 2 Intel® Xeon® processors in a 1U form factor enables customers to deploy servers with 4 to 48 processor cores in data centers or edge environments.
Deployable with more than 2,000 cores and 64 TB of memory in a single rack, customers can accelerate compute-intensive applications in small data centers.
Up to 51.2 TB of high-endurance, write-optimized, and hot-swappable flash storage accelerates customer applications and reduces customer downtime.
Built-in Oracle ILOM fault diagnostics and fault isolation maximizes firmware security and prevents malicious attacks in customer data centers.
Oracle Server X8-2L’s storage-intensive configurations allow customers to accelerate enterprise workloads such as Oracle Database, NoSQL, and Hadoop.
2 Intel® Xeon® processors with up to 48 total cores, 1.5 TB of memory, and 102 TB of NVMe flash storage or 168 TB of disk storage in a 2U form factor accelerate data-intensive customer applications.
11 PCIe 3.0 expansion slots with up to 192 GB/sec bidirectional I/O bandwidth enable customers to easily connect to existing data center infrastructure.
Built-in Oracle ILOM 4 fault diagnostics and fault isolation maximizes firmware security and prevents malicious attacks in customer data centers.
Oracle Server X8-8’s high CPU, memory, and IO performance enable IT departments to support a wide range of high-performance applications or consolidate multiple enterprise workloads to reduce data center complexity.
Two configuration options allow customers to optimize their data center by deploying either one 8-socket system with 192 Intel® Xeon® CPU cores or two 4-socket systems with 96 cores each in a compact, 5U form factor.
Up to 6 TB memory with 1 TB/s of memory bandwidth enables customers to efficiently consolidate application workloads or run in-memory databases and applications requiring very large memory footprints.
Up to 384 GB/s of IO bandwidth enables customers to rapidly load and store in-memory workloads and process multi-TB storage-based data sets.
IT staffs can reconfigure an Oracle Server X8-8 system between a single 8-socket system and two 4-socket ones in the field, enabling them to quickly adapt to changing workload requirements.
Oracle Server X8 systems run customer applications with high performance while maximizing deployment flexibility and security.
Oracle Server X8 systems provide the compute, memory, and IO performance required to consolidate industry-standard applications on less-complex infrastructure.
Oracle Server X8 systems deliver high, reliable performance and multiple levels of embedded security needed in scale-out cloud environments.
Oracle Server X8 systems include Oracle Linux and Oracle VM at no additional cost, eliminating hidden operating system and virtualization costs and giving customers a single point of contact for support.
