Oracle Debuts Exalytics X3-4 Engineered System

Paul Rodwick, VP of product management for Oracle Exalytics, explained to Enterprise Apps Today that the Exalytics system works with existing information management systems and both structured and unstructured data sources. Exalytics is an in-memory analytics system and will identify what data should be pulled into memory.

With the Exalytics X3-4, Oracle is doubling the main memory of the system to 2 TB of RAM. The new system also delivers 2.4 TB of flash storage and 5.4 TB of traditional spinning disk hard drive storage.

Though the Exalytics X3-4 provides more memory and storage for users, it doesn’t include a refresh of the Intel Xeon chips. Rodwick noted that the new Exalytics X3-4 is powered by the same Intel Xeon processors that powered the first Exalytics X2-4 systems that started shipping in 2012.
