The World’s First OLTP Database Machine With FlashFire Technology

Based on a combination of Oracle software and innovative Sun hardware, including Sun's breakthrough FlashFire technology, Oracle Exadata V2 is built on a massively parallel architecture that brings together fast servers, and high-bandwidth interconnects between storage and database servers — a design that radically accelerates database processing and delivers exceptional performance.

Available in a range of configurations, the new Oracle Exadata V2 combines compute, storage and networking technologies, and features Sun FlashFire Technology to turbocharge applications. This uniquely well-balanced CPU, I/O and memory system yields high throughput networking and performance, designed and tuned for Oracle technology.

The result is a quantum leap in performance over Oracle's previous generation Exadata machine, including a 20x increase in random I/O and a 5x I/O bandwidth speedup with FlashFire Technology, as well as a 2x speedup in compute and network performance capacity. In short, the Oracle Exadata V2 is the world's fastest machine for both data warehousing and online transaction processing.
