Oracle will bring the biggest innovations at its recent annual forum, Oracle OpenWorld, to GITEX TECHNOLOGY WEEK.

In his OpenWorld keynote, Larry Ellison, CEO, announced the latest Oracle Exadata system, the Oracle Exadata X3 Database In-Memory Machine.

This pre-engineered system can store hundreds of terabytes of compressed user data in flash and RAM memory, making it much quicker and easier to retrieve that data. The Oracle Exadata X3 Database In-Memory Machine implements a mass memory hierarchy that automatically moves all active data into Flash and RAM memory, while keeping less active data on low-cost disks.

It delivers four times the flash memory capacity of the previous generation; with up to 40% faster response times and 100 GB/second data scan rates. It also delivers 20 times more capacity for database writes through updated Exadata Smart Flash Cache software. The new Exadata Smart Flash Cache software also runs on previous generation Exadata systems, increasing their capacity for writes tenfold.

Another engineered systems announcement at OOW focused on the communications industry. The Oracle Network Applications Platform is specifically designed to meet the extreme network workload requirements for the development and deployment of mission-critical communications services and applications.

Oracle Network Applications Platform combines Oracle’s Sun Netra 6000, Oracle’s Sun ZFS Storage 7320, Oracle Linux, Oracle VM, Oracle Enterprise Manager, Oracle Communications Service Availability (OCSA) and Oracle Clusterware software.
