Oracle has announced the availability of the Oracle Exadata X9M platforms.
The new Exadata X9M offerings include Oracle Exadata Database Machine X9M, and Exadata Cloud@Customer X9M.
Oracle Exadata Cloud@Customer X9M
Compared to Amazon RDS using all-flash storage, Exadata Cloud@Customer X9M delivers 50X better OLTP latency. Compared to Microsoft Azure SQL using all-flash storage, Exadata Cloud@Customer X9M delivers 100X better OLTP latency. For analytics, Exadata Cloud@Customer X9M delivers up to 25X faster throughput than Microsoft Azure SQL, and up to 72X faster throughput than Amazon RDS. Exadata Cloud@Customer X9M also delivers 50X better OLTP latency and 18X more aggregate throughput than databases running on AWS RDS using a full rack AWS Outposts configuration.
Oracle Autonomous Database on Exadata Cloud@Customer X9M
Oracle Autonomous Database can be found on Exadata Cloud@Customer X9M. A new enhancement is support for small databases running with fractional CPUs to enable agile, low-cost, consolidation, application development, and testing. Integration with Oracle’s Zero Data Loss Recovery Appliance improves protection against data loss and ransomware cyber-attacks. In addition, customers can benefit from advanced security features such as customer-managed encryption keys, and database-level Access Control Lists (ACL). Business-critical applications can now leverage simplified disaster recovery provisioning using cross-region Oracle Autonomous Data Guard, as well as Oracle GoldenGate for heterogeneous data replication and streaming data processing for real-time analytics.
Oracle Exadata Database Machine X9M—the Core Platform
The core Exadata X9M platform is built using a unique scale-out architecture that combines the latest Intel CPUs, Intel® Optane™ persistent memory (PMem), and RDMA over Converged Ethernet (RoCE) to deliver up to 27.6M IOPS and sub 19 microsecond latency for OLTP. To accelerate analytics applications, each Exadata X9M rack delivers over 1 TB/sec of analytical scan throughput and provides up to 576 CPUs in intelligent storage servers to process low-level SQL queries, analytics, and machine learning algorithms.
Oracle’s Zero Data Loss Recovery Appliance X9M
The Recovery Appliance is purpose-built to protect Oracle Databases, featuring unique capabilities to recover databases with no data loss and automatically validate backups for assured database recoverability. Oracle is also introducing new Cyber Vault capabilities for reliably recovering from malware and ransomware attacks. The new Recovery Appliance version increases storage capacity by 30 percent and lowers entry-level pricing by 50 percent. New features include synchronization between multiple Recovery Appliances to enable backup and recovery continuity during unplanned and planned outages. In addition, support for long-term backup retention options include on-premises Oracle ZFS Storage Appliance and Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Object Storage.
