In today’s data-driven world, the power of artificial intelligence (AI) and advanced analytics is undeniable. They have the potential to revolutionize industries, drive innovation, and unlock valuable insights. However, behind every successful AI and analytics initiative lies a crucial foundation: excellent data management capabilities.
In a recent research survey from TechTarget’s Enterprise Strategy Group, Data Platforms: The Path to Achieving Data-driven Empowerment, when they were asked about the most important areas of their data platform, 31% of organizations ranked data management, including databases, at the top. In the same survey, 50% of participants identified faster business decision-making as the leading driver and goal for their modern data platform strategies, with 19% focused on creating competitive advantage. Database performance is critical to reaching the data-driven outcomes desired by organizations.
Oracle has introduced its latest addition to the Exadata database machine family, the Exadata X10M, which is powered by AMD’s EPYC server processors. This release marks a significant milestone for Oracle and its database performance capabilities. The Exadata platform is known for its co-engineered hardware and software, specifically designed to support enterprise data management. It offers a complete stack system with optimized processors, memory, and storage, as well as system software for efficient data storage, indexing, and movement. With the Exadata X10M, Oracle continues its commitment to delivering high-performance database servers by leveraging AMD’s EPYC CPUs, incorporating up to 96 multithreaded cores, DDR5 memory, and RDMA over Converged Ethernet (RoCE) for low-latency, high-bandwidth connectivity.
Oracle’s optimization efforts extend beyond hardware to its software stack, ensuring linear scalability and maximum performance across multiple cores. The Exadata X10M stands out with its high performance, surpassing its predecessor, the X9M, in terms of OLTP performance, analytics, and database consolidation.
