Oracle Exadata X8M Optimizes Converged Databases

Performance, speed, and efficiency in one.

Large organizations are under increasing pressure to manage complex supply chains and adhere to rigorous compliance—all while delivering a seamless, sophisticated customer experience.

To do this, they need systems that are fast, secure, and reliable—especially when it comes to managing business-critical data and generating real-time analytical insights.

Highly secure converged databases are needed to achieve this. They combine traditional row and columnar database access with spatial, graph, text, time series, and other data types on a single high-performance platform. This makes it easier for businesses to minimize database and IT complexity, for developers to create innovative solutions, and for everyone to operate with maximum efficiency.

What Is a Converged Database?

A converged database enables multiple different data types to be hosted in a single database system that provides security and availability along with standard interfaces. It enables the easy integration of these diverse data types and reduces the need to move large amounts of data across multiple systems in order to make analytical decisions.

Reducing complexity and development lock-in while enabling rapid time to market.
