Oracle announced the availability of the Oracle Exadata X9M platforms, the latest version for running Oracle Database. The new Exadata X9M offerings include Oracle Exadata Database Machine X9M and Exadata Cloud@Customer X9M — the platform that runs Oracle Autonomous Database in customer data centres. Today, 87 percent of the Global Fortune 100 and thousands of smaller enterprises rely on Oracle Exadata to run their business-critical workloads.

Next-generation Exadata X9M platforms accelerate online transaction processing (OLTP) with more than 70 percent higher IOPs rates and IO latencies of under 19 microseconds. They also deliver up to an 87 per cent increase in analytic SQL throughput and machine learning workloads. By delivering higher performance at the same price as the previous generation, Exadata X9M enables customers to reduce the costs of running transactional workloads by up to 42 percent, and analytics workloads by up to 47 percent.

“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,” said Juan Loaiza, executive vice president, Mission-Critical Database Technologies, Oracle. “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.”

“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,” said Carl Olofson, Research Vice President, Data Management Software, IDC. “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.”
