Oracle announces Exalytics In-Memory Machine X4-4

29 Sep 2014 San Francisco - Oracle has introduced Exalytics In-Memory Machine X4-4, designed to deliver high-performance analytics for business intelligence and enterprise performance management applications. The new release features upgraded hardware powered by four Intel Xeon E7-8895 v2 series processors, customized by Intel for Oracle Engineered Systems. This processor has the ability to dynamically scale the frequency and number of cores with Oracle software to maximize performance to address business analytics workloads that require faster single threaded performance as well as large levels of parallelism.

The Exalytics In-Memory Machine X4-4 supports up to 3 TB of memory, 4.8 TB of PCI Flash and 7.2 TB of hard disks - increasing capacity in every dimension.

Oracle Database In-Memory is now certified for all Oracle Exalytics configurations. Combined with the up to 3 TB of memory available per machine, entire reporting data marts can be cached in memory and provide fast analysis without forklift upgrades.

Oracle continues to invest in Exalytics In-Memory Software, providing several Oracle Essbase in-memory features, including patented lockless algorithms, Oracle Exalytics-specific thread pool and resource management, and background multiuser write that helps dramatically improve overall Oracle Essbase performance and scalability.

Exalytics In-Memory Machine X4-4 is a complete solution featuring updated best-in-class hardware, an enterprise business intelligence platform, and in-memory analytics software, pre-integrated to enable a lower total cost of ownership while increasing performance.

Exalytics X4-4 is engineered to support the widest range of reporting and analytics capabilities, out of the box, with support for new releases of Oracle Endeca Information Discovery, Oracle Business Intelligence Foundation Suite, Oracle Business Intelligence Applications, Oracle Real-Time Decisions, Oracle TimesTen In-Memory Database and Oracle Hyperion Enterprise Performance Management, speeding time-to-value.

Oracle Exalytics continues to enjoy strong customer adoption worldwide. Hundreds of companies of varying sizes are deploying multiple units to create powerful analytics platforms dealing with significant data volumes and analytics needs. Oracle Exalytics has found adoption in large-scale business intelligence deployments as well as in small but nimble organizations requiring real-time analytics and a high degree of interactivity.

"The pace of business continues to accelerate and with it comes the need to uncover business insights rapidly", stated Balaji Yelamanchili, senior vice president, analytics and performance management products, Oracle. "Oracle's Exalytics In-Memory Machine X4-4 with enhanced capacity and greater memory represents a flexible foundation on which organisations can base their analytics needs in order to benefit from extreme performance and a compelling business user experience."

"Time to insight is a business imperative today, and the analytic applications utilized include a range of workloads. Some require a high degree of parallel processing and some require high speed, focused execution", stated Shannon Poulin, VP and GM Enterprise IT Solutions Group, Intel Corporation. "The customized Intel Xeon processor E7-8895 v2, when coupled with Oracle software enhancements, allows Oracle to deliver their latest generation Oracle Exalytics engineered system with the performance needed to achieve a competitive advantage."
