Oracle today announced the availability of the Oracle Exadata X9M platforms, the latest version of the industry’s fastest and most affordable systems for running Oracle Database. The new Exadata X9M offerings include Oracle Exadata Database Machine X9M and Exadata Cloud@Customer X9M—the only platform that runs Oracle Autonomous Database in customer data centers. Today, 87 percent of the Global Fortune 100 and thousands of smaller enterprises rely on Oracle Exadata to run their business-critical workloads.
Juan Loaiza, executive vice president, Mission-Critical Database Technologies, Oracle, commented “The Oracle Exadata X9M generation continues our strategy of providing customers exceptional value by delivering the world’s fastest and most available Oracle Database platform, and making it available everywhere—in the public cloud, cloud@customer, and on-premises,” “For X9M we adopted the latest CPUs, networking, and storage hardware, and optimized our software to deliver dramatically faster performance. Customers get the fastest OLTP, the fastest analytics and the best consolidation—all at the same price as the previous generation. No other platform, do-it-yourself infrastructure, database, or cloud service comes close to Exadata X9M performance, cost/performance, or simplicity.”
Carl Olofson, Research Vice President, Data Management Software, IDC, said “Oracle continues to push the outside edge of the performance envelope with the introduction of Exadata Cloud@Customer X9M. When combined with Autonomous Database’s self-driving capabilities it’s a powerful enterprise-grade database cloud on-premises offering that delivers impressive value on multiple levels,” “For companies serious about running these types of critical Oracle-based applications in an on-premises enterprise database cloud, Oracle Autonomous Database on Exadata Cloud@Customer is the obvious choice.”
Intel is a $220B world leader in semiconductor design and manufacturing. “Our partnership with Oracle has never been more important, said Sandra Rivera, executive vice president and general manager, Datacenter and AI Group, Intel. “I am thrilled that Exadata X9M and Exadata Cloud@Customer X9M will support Intel’s latest 3rd Gen Xeon Scalable processor platform and Intel’s Optane persistent memory, delivering impressive throughput and efficiency enhancements. I look forward to new possibilities unleashed by Oracle’s new platforms. I’m also pleased to say that Intel uses Exadata in our most critical factory operations within our manufacturing group. We are honored to be a part of the Oracle Exadata family.”
