Magically Oracle RAC now scales to 8 nodes per rack * 8 racks = 64 nodes for OLTP?
We settled on 3 nodes for the applications we have not ripped RAC out.
"5 Terabytes Flash Cache Memory - Not Flash Disk!!!" Marketing BS. Too bad you forgot to change all the other charts in the deck that said Flash disk....come on you can do better than that...fire someone in marketing....along with that guy who can't forward the charts fast enough.
We looked at Exadata but even though "its the most successful product launch ever" it looks like only 9 companies bought/took one last quarter
* Research in Motion
* A large East Coast insurance company
* Thomson Reuters
* Barclays Capital (UK)
* Two banks in Europe
I looked out at TPC-H and I did not see a new result for 1TB. Who does 1TB any more? I guess you want to play with the little vendors. And why did Oracle show the database vendor name and not Fujitsu and Sun? Oh and you did not show the HP blade result which your own team could not beat? That has got to Hurd.
8 cores per node * .5, 8 nodes per rack, 8 racks = 256 Oracle licenses of Oracle EE and RAC =
$16.5 Million for just the base oracle database for year one!!!!!!
