by Ildiko Kiss Thursday, April 28, 2011
SCC has become one of the elite group of organisations capable of demonstrating the Oracle Exadata V2's capabilities after installing one of the machines in its Lyndon Place Data Centre.
The announcement, which sees Europe's largest independent technology solutions supplier become one of only two UK vendors offering clients the opportunity to test the turbo charged Oracle platform, will afford SCC's clients a rare opportunity to assess the solutions potential impact upon their organisation's operations. Enterprise scale customers wishing to test the system's performance using their own data will be able to effectively judge the benefits of the combined server, software and storage package without running the risk of impacting upon their day-to-day operations.
"We're delighted to be in a position to demonstrate the potential of this exciting new technology in an environment that enables clients to get an accurate overview of how it will impact upon their businesses without endangering core business activities. As a combined server, storage, infiniband switching and software solution Exadata v2 promises to greatly improve the reliability of large scale transactional databases, and the ability to test its capabilities in a safe context will prove a major benefit to organisations wishing to investigate the system's capabilities," said Peter Spreadbury,Director of Vendor Alliances for SCC.
The Exadata V2 has already been installed in the Lyndon Place Data Centre, allowing end-users to experience the very latest infrastructure solution from the market leading technology vendors. The facility will provide clients with the opportunity to design database solutions for their operations, enabling them to benchmark real world performance in the safety of a simulated environment in readiness for solution deployment.
Exadata V2 is the world’s first database machine for both data warehousing and online transaction processing (OLTP) applications that features Sun FlashFire technology. Combined with Oracle Database 11g, it provides a comprehensive platform for high-performance data management functions, promising improved reliability and reduced maintenance costs at a stroke.
Peter Spreadbury added: "Exadata V2 is a compelling solution allowing businesses to cost-effectively manage growing business information and consolidate database applications on low-cost grids while eliminating the cost of third-party speciality servers. Providing for the first time a combined software and hardware platform that has been built entirely by Oracle, it looks set to fundamentally change enterprise expectations over reliability and cost."
