Oracle Exadata Consultancy

The Value of Exadata

Generic infrastructure gives you generic results...

Exadata is a converged infrastructure solution that solves problems with Oracle Database performance, availability, scalability and recovery. Originally released in 2008, Exadata was actually an “alliance” solution between Oracle and Hewlett Packard and an example of how many converged infrastructure solutions are still created today. Fast forward to today and over 10,000 units have been shipped globally and 86% of the Fortune Global 100 use Exadata to underpin their mission critical database workloads.

“The Exadata Smart Scan feature has been the main factor in reducing price load times without any change to program code.  The high-performance storage, with its flash cache, means IO performance is dramatically improved for the databases. 
 
The ZFS storage appliance that was also implemented and, along with Exadata, has helped reduce backup and restore times considerably and even helped reduce the size of the backup files due to the native compression of the ZFS.”

Understanding Exadata performance through an onsite PoC

We understand that all customers are different and each Oracle workload will have its own unique set of nuances, regardless of its size. This means it’s almost impossible to know what scale Exadata can improve performance.

The key is to try it in your datacentre with your applications, which to date has been extremely difficult and costly to achieve for customers – both logistically and technically.

To remedy this, our own Exadata is available for onsite Proof of Concepts with zero associated costs.

Discovery Session

We meet with you to discuss your Oracle infrastructure, performance issues, business challenges and future business requirements.

Gather Benchmark Stats

At the same time, we install our performance monitoring software to gather performance information about specific Oracle workloads. Eg, Backup run times, query wait times.

Delivery And Installation

An Exadata X5 will be delivered to your site, fully insured, along with our Exadata consultant to begin installation and configuration.

Exadata Benchmark

Using the same tool that gathered performance information about your current Database hardware, we will repeat the benchmark on Exadata and capture like-for-like performance information.
